From April 4th through April 6th, Lawrence Technological University in Southfield, MI will be playing host to the 3rd Annual International Broke Student Film Festival. Started by alumnus Kathryn Ruff in 2012, the Festival reaches out to student filmmakers from Southeast Michigan and around the world. The Broke Student Film Festival is one of the only venues in Michigan that gives aspiring student filmmakers the opportunity to see their work screened in a theater in front of a live audience and receive feedback from professionals with decades of experience in the film and video industry.
