OURS Film Festival Staff Pick

When: Sat., June 1, 4 p.m. 2019
Price: Free with RSVP
The historic Senate Theater in Detroit is having a bit of a moment. The revitalized home to the world’s eighth largest Wurlitzer pipe organ appropriately named the “Mighty Wurlitzer” has been expanding its programming to engage the community, film buffs, history freaks, and beyond, as well as fun AF fundraisers to assist in the renovation of the iconic marquee. 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.
