Watch the sun reveal itself over the Lake Huron horizon and also watch “FLYING FUR” at the Sunrise 45 Film Festival in Alpena, MI. We’ve been accepted into another Michigan film festival and couldn’t be happier. This is a delightful town is on the the shore of the second largest Great Lake, and they put on a wonderful festival. Make plans to be there!
Sunrise 45 Film, Music, and Art Festival is like no other. Nestled in the small town of Alpena in Northeast Michigan (what we call the Sunrise Side of the state), Sunrise 45 features three different screening venues, all within walking distance from each other. It takes place in late Summer, the best and most beautiful time to be in Northeast Michigan, and is split in two by the Thunder Bay River. Our town is an eclectic mix of post-industrial blue collar and northern charm, with a good dose of youthful spirit and vibrancy. Come discover this gem off the beaten path. We mix film, music, and art installations that take over the entire downtown which, when combined with our natural landscapes, is more than enough eye-candy for this three-day festival.
