Freep Film Festival is a documentary-focused event, with special attention paid to films connected to Detroit and Michigan — or with special resonance there. It believes great journalism and great documentary storytelling can inform, inspire and help push the region forward — shining light on its challenges and celebrating its achievements. In addition to films, the FFF also presents related panel discussions, parties, music events and more.
The festival features the world premiere screening of An Armenian Trilogy. The work examines the life and music of contemporary Detroit composer Dan Yessian and the history and culture of his familial homeland, Armenia, where more than 1.5 million civilians were killed during World War I.
