Thank you to everyone who attended the Waterfront Film Studio Open House!

June 8, 2018

Thank you to everyone who attended the Waterfront Film Studio Open House! It was a great turnout with many event planners, past volunteers, and Festival Fans. 

If you were unable to attend the Open House, below is more information about the facility. 
The new venue, on Columbia Avenue near downtown Holland, features a versatile space that can be used as a 125-seat theater or as an event space. The building, a renovated auto-body shop, also serves as WFF headquarters and offices. Waterfront organizers spent much of the past two years revamping the industrial site into a multi-purpose studio with large garage doors that roll up to create a unique indoor/outdoor gathering space. Plans for phase II of the project include an update to the building façade and landscaping for an outdoor seating and reception area. 
The redesign was made possible by a matching grant awarded by the Michigan Council for Arts & Cultural Affairs. The non-profit organization restructured its operations, transitioning from an annual 4- day festival toward individual screenings at the new permanent facility capable of offering year round events. The space will also be available for rental for corporate events, weddings and other gatherings.
