Over the years, we have had many films that have screened on the Sundance Channel, IFC, PBS and HBO along with countless filmmakers who have received distribution deals after screening in our festival.

Opening the door for other organizations, festivals and filmmakers to show the world what amazing contributions Erie people had to make to the Indie Film Community, the Great Lakes International Film Festival is celebrating not only its 15th anniversary, but Erie film and those who make the magic that we see on the screen.

From the feature narrative genre to documentary to animation; experimental, horror and Spiritual films, the Great Lakes International Film Festival celebrates the film arts in dynamic transition. As emerging technologies continue to redefine the form, filmmakers from the Great Lakes region, across the country and around the world express the common and the diverse through the age-old tradition. — The art of the story.
