BIRMINGHAM, Mich. -- This year’s festival features a number of film premieres as well as star studded screenings of films that were made here in our state with local talent. For the second year, our presenting sponsor is Oakland County Film and Digital Media and we are extremely grateful for their continued support. The Michigan Film Office, Delta Airlines, Film Detroit, Olympia Entertainment, MotorCity Casino Hotel, along with the City of Birmingham, and many other organizations large and small have graciously contributed to this year’s event.

The 2012 festival now takes place over three days, and we are screening more films and presenting twice as many events as last year. We sponsor three Afterglow Events at some of the finest Birmingham eateries. Barrio, South, and the newly opened What Crepe, are offering up delicious cuisine and refreshments for your enjoyment. We encourage and invite you to support our sponsors and the businesses that have made the Uptown Film Festival the fastest growing and “premiere” film festival in Michigan.

We conclude the festival on Saturday evening with the Third Annual Michigan Film Awards Ceremony. Filmmakers from Michigan and around the world submitted over 120 films this year. These submissions were narrowed to the best 60 shorts and full-length films. The nominated films will be screened during the festival and outstanding achievement will be recognized during the awards ceremony. We are extremely proud of the level of filmmaking submitted for the 2012 festival and are certain that you will find them entertaining and thought provoking.

The mission of the Uptown Film Festival is to celebrate Michigan’s film industry and the accomplishments of local filmmakers. 2011 presented many challenges for the film industry due to uncertainty with the film incentive. A new sustainable incentive is now in place and with sufficient funding, the film industry in Michigan can be successful once again. We encourage your support in revitalizing this diverse and creative industry in Michigan. The Uptown Film Festival appreciates your patronage and we look forward to seeing you in years to come.
