Open Projector Night, May 17th, is supported in part by the Michigan Film and Digital Media Office and features short films that were made right here in Michigan. 

Unlike the Guys From 'Welcome Back Kotter', these Michigan Made Movies will be worth watching.

The UICA (Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts) Describes the event as,

Celebrate short films with the Open Projector Night series, a recurring cinematic event presenting the work of local, regional, and national filmmakers with a Michigan connection. Enjoy a diverse range of movies  from animated narratives and commercial work to experimental pieces.

You can also take part in panel discussions on the films and vote for your favorite.

The event runs from 8 to 10 pm on Wednesday, May 17th and costs $8, $4 if your a member of the UICA.
