Made In Michigan Film Festival
The Made-in-Michigan Film Festival (MiMFF) celebrates and promotes independent films exclusively from the state of Michigan through an annual Film Festival. In addition to the annual event, the Made-in-Michigan Film Society (MiMFS) has been formed to showcase independent Michigan films through a monthly gathering, and give an opportunity for film-goers to interact with film makers. By giving Michigan Filmmakers exposure and a venue to display their films, the MiMFF strives towards enhancing the quality of economic and cultural life in the State of Michigan. Every year we highly encourage filmmakers to submit their films, and promise to do our very best to screen as many films as possible, promote our festival, and bring out an audience to watch Michigan films that are born with passion, creativity, and enthusiasm. Michigan Filmmakers have SO much to offer, and the MiMFF wants to make sure these films get the recognition they deserve.

If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity.

An Evening Of One Act Performances- Plaza Suite
Friday, April 28 and Saturday, April 29 at 7:00 PM. Show tickets are $8 Adults and $4 Students
Hilarity abounds in this portrait of three couples successively occupying a suite at the Plaza. A suburban couple take the suite while their house is being painted and it turns out to be the one in which they honeymooned 23 (or was it 24?) years before and was yesterday the anniversary, or is it today? This wry tale of marriage in tatters is followed by the exploits of a Hollywood producer who, after three marriages, is looking for fresh fields. He calls a childhood sweetheart, now a suburban housewife, for a little sexual diversion. Over the years she has idolized him from afar and is now more than the match he bargained for. The last couple is a mother and father fighting about the best way to get their daughter out of the bathroom and down to the ballroom where guests await her or as Mother yells, "I want you to come out of that bathroom and get married!
