Children’s Film Festival

For the last 20 years, the Saugatuck Center for the Arts has brought together local students from across West Michigan to dig into other cultures, traditions, stories, and spirits. These unique learning experiences are possible through the power of film.

“We hope that through film, the students are able to be creative and realize they can tell their story whether it’s through art, photography, film, music, dancing, or their writing -- that they all have a unique story to tell.”
Kristen Milord
Mountainfilm on Tour Presenter.
