It's festival season....with Ann Arbor around the corner, and DIFF / Uptown teaming up things are looking to get good for us who want to bask in indie light.

Celebrating Michigan’s finest , the 2nd Annual Detroit Independent Film Festival (DIFF) presents its line-up for 2011. The second year festival includes over 80 films including World Premieres, panels, afterglow parties and more.

THE DIFF received well over 235 films from all over the world and the festival begins March 9th, and continues through Sunday, March 13th, 2011.

DIFF 2011 will kick off with two big events going on at the same time including an opening night reception both at the Ren Cen 4 and the Burton Theatre. Michigan Filmmaker’s Night will be the opening night event that will take place at the Ren Cen 4.

The Burton Theatre will also be having their own opening night reception and screening with the Michigan Premiere of “The Beast Pageant” which recently had its World Premiere at this year’s Slamdance Film Festival.

Thursday Night opens with two exceptional short film blocks at the Burton Theatre , including an experimental and short film program including the Michigan Premiere of the acclaimed short film “Soap” which is about a middle-age women who finds herself in a sticky situation when she discovers her lover dead from having slipped on a bar of soap.

Friday Night’s line-up includes three grand premieres. Including the World Premiere of Hollywood based director J.C. Calciano’s “eCupid”, about a young ad man who is desperate for a new life that he goes looking for it online where he comes up a mysterious app called “eCupid” that guarantees him to find true love.

Another Friday headliner is the World premiere of Michigan based indie filmmaker Michael McCallum’s (Fairview St., Handlebar) new film “Lucky” about a young man who moves from relationship to relationship trying to meet the right woman.
