The latest event to mix things up is the OURS Film Festival, hosted by As Detroit’s Own, which will combine independent film, local art, and extreme sports. The free event will screen short films submitted by filmmakers and YouTubers, all of whom will be in contention for the grand prize of $500. The interior of the Senate will also feature art from Michigan-based artists, and outside, the theater’s yard will boast a Modern Skate & Surf-sponsored halfpipe for skaters, BMX riders, and, yes, even some dang scooters.
OURS Film Fest begins at 4 p.m. on Saturday, June 1, at the Senate Theater; 6424 Michigan Ave., Detroit; 313-894-0850; facebook.com/senatetheater; Event is free with RSVP.
