Dutch actress Cynthia Loemij in a still frame from Manon de Boer's film, Dissonant to be shown in Windsor At Media City

Tonight at the Capitol Theatre, the sixteenth edition of the Media City Film Festival kicks off in Windsor at 6pm with an opening party.

The Media City Film Festival, which was established in 1994, is a five day long exhibition of international experimental and art-house film.  Showcasing over 75 films, the Festival features film lectures, music performances and naturally, a film competition.

The Festival takes place primarily at the Capitol Theatre in Downtown Windsor, but extends as far as the Burton Theatre in Detroit.

Last night, filmmaker Kevin Jerome Everson’s film Erie formally opened the Media City Festival in Detroit.  The film, shot in black and white and mostly silent, described a multitude of incidents around Lake Erie and the State of Michigan.

Tonight’s (free!) Windsor opening party begins at 6pm, at the Capitol Theatre (121 University Ave. West) in downtown Windsor.

Admission to the festival is a suggested donation of $5 per film, or $20 for a pass to the entire festival.
