9th Annual Frankfort Film Festival

OCTOBER 19-22, 2017

Save the date for the 9th Annual Frankfort Film Festival, presented by Northway Orthodontics, happening October 19-22 at the historic Garden Theater in downtown Frankfort, Michigan.

This year's Frankfort Film Festival will screen 19 award-winning films from around the globe. Filmmakers for two of this year's films will be in attendance at the festival. Plus, short films produced by students of Interlochen Arts Academy's Motion Picture Arts program and the winning films in our inaugural Frankfort48 Film Festival will be shown preceding the festival's daily feature films.

Tickets to festival films are $10 each, per person. The Garden Theater box office opens one hour prior to each film showing for individual ticket purchases. Tickets for individual shows are not available for advance purchase.

The following films are on our short list to screen and will be "blooming soon" in The Garden. While we cannot guarantee these movies will be shown, it is our intent to bring them to the big screen in downtown Frankfort.

Ever wonder why The Garden doesn't publish a film schedule greater than a week in advance or why it takes so long to show a popular movie? Well, you are not alone!

In the new digital age, the studios are printing fewer and fewer copies of their movies. Studios decide which venues get the best films and the multiplex theaters that show several movies every day are given preference over single-screen cinemas like us. Subsequently, we often have to wait a few extra weeks to bring you the best movies.

Thank you for waiting to see your favorite films at The Garden!
