Waterfront Film Festival will go on, despite power outage in South Haven

The show will go on tonight in South Haven.

It looked for a while this morning that the start of the 15th annual Waterfront Film Festival might be delayed. Last night’s wind storm knocked out power to more than 95% of South Haven.

Patrick Revere is with the film festival. He says things looked “dicey” this morning, but they have since made arrangements to have the backup power they need to kick off the festival tonight.

“We’ll be able to do everything that we were planning on doing for our opening night party tonight at South Beach,” says Revere.

The festival plans to show 80 independent, documentary and short films during the next four days.   This is the first year for the festival in South Haven.   The festival spent its first 14 years in Saugatuck, but moved this year to provide more space for filmgoers.
