Alpena, Michigan  ----    January 12, 2015  This January, the Friends of Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary are bringing the world of Thunder Bay International Film Festivalcinema to Alpena!

For one weekend in January, residents and travelers to northeast Michigan will be treated to some of the most impressive ocean and Great Lakes-inspired films from around the world.

Features of the event include films from the San Francisco International Ocean Film Festival, an acclaimed festival of ocean-themed films that are largely unavailable to the general public. Also featured will be a number of Great Lakes films, presented by the filmmakers themselves.  

The Thunder Bay International Film Festival gets underway on the evening of Wednesday, January 21 with an opening reception and films at the Rogers City Theater, and continues through Sunday with additional movie screenings, filmmaker panels, educational events, and social affairs.
