MISSION STATEMENT

We are Freep Film Festival

Freep Film Festival is a documentary-focused festival produced by the Detroit Free Press — Michigan’s largest news organization — in cooperation with its business and events arm, Michigan.com. The five-day festival features films with a strong connection to the issues, people and places in and around Detroit and Michigan.

In addition to screening films, Freep Film Festival embraces the journalistic and community-minded mission of the Free Press, hosting in-depth discussions after most films, to encourage conversations that spin off the issues raised on-screen. The festival also hosts parties, music shows, dining events and more.
