The Wild Wild (mid)West Film Festival is a project organized and directed by students at Interlochen Arts Academy in partnership with the historic State Theatre in downtown Traverse City. In January, 2014, a group of nineteen students worked together with representatives from the State Theatre to build this festival from the ground up. The mission of the WW(m)W Film Fest is to screen interesting and important films that can both entertain viewers and raise engaging questions not only about film but about culture at large. During the festival, we will be collecting donations for the Native American Heritage Association, a group that has helped Native communities for over twenty years. All festival screenings are presented free of charge and will be followed by an audience Q&A moderated by Interlochen Arts Academy faculty.
