Lost Film Fest returns

Oct. 16, 2008

KALAMAZOO--The Lost Film Fest will return to Western Michigan University's Little Theatre from 7 to 10 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 22.

For nine years, the Lost Film Fest has been a traveling multimedia spectacle incorporating cutting-edge digital filmmaking, live performance and humorous social commentary. Each show is designed to evoke discussion on timely and critical issues and offer a break from Hollywood and mainstream media.

This year's festival is sponsored by Kalamazoo Collective Housing. It will include short selections ranging from engaging documentaries to powerful narratives and absurd comedies. Many of the pieces deal with such challenging issues as media ownership, voting reform, globalization, U.S. foreign policy, censorship, racism, sexism and environmental issues, among others.

Admission to the film fest is free. Optional donations may be made to Kalamazoo Collective Housing, a WMU registered student organization.

The Little Theatre is located at the corner of Oakland Drive and Oliver Street on WMU's East Campus. Free off-street parking is available behind the theatre. For more information, visit lostfilmfest.org or contact Michael Gregor, Kalamazoo Collective Housing, at michael@kzoocoop.org or (269) 793-9172.
