Movie heaven

. May 2, 2012.

The Michigan Theater has contemplated having an international film festival (other than the experimental gem Ann Arbor Film Festival of course) for several years, and now it’s a reality. On May 31 – June 3, Cinetopia will show 30 to 40 feature films, documentaries and new and old 3D pictures — similar to Toronto, Cannes or Cleveland. The inaugural selections include works that premiered at Sundance and other world-renowned festivals, including the films of silent-era star Henry Lloyd. Compared to the AAFF, Cinetopia will show more popularized films than obscure ones. The festival hopes to expand in coming years, with the goal of expanding to 11 days. Michigan Theater, 603 E. Liberty St. 734-668-8463. www.michtheater.org
