Warner Norcross & Judd LLP is again sponsoring two of Michigan's leading film festivals.
Warner Norcross, which is the largest law firm in West Michigan, is sponsoring the 10th annual Waterfront Film Festival in Saugatuck. Rated one of the industry's top 5 film festivals, WFF will screen more than 35 feature-length films and more than 25 shorts during its four-day run June 12-15. Cam DeLong, chair of the Firm's Entertainment Industry Group, will serve on a panel discussion of the new Michigan film incentives on Saturday, June 14, at 3:30 p.m.
Warner Norcross is also sponsoring the Traverse City Film Festival, scheduled July 29-Aug. 3. Now in its fourth year, the invitation-only festival showcases independent, foreign and documentary films each summer. The festival was founded by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Michael Moore.
"We are very pleased to once again support the Waterfront Film Festival and the Traverse City Film Festival," DeLong said. "The new film incentives passed by the state, which are among the most generous in the country, have made Michigan a true destination for filmmakers and production companies.
"As the state's largest entertainment law firm, Warner Norcross works with producers, directors and artists from Holland to Hollywood to ensure their legal needs are met. We look forward to participating in both festivals – and to supporting the state’s growing film industry."
