SHEETS of SAND – Movie Premiere!

Lights. Camera. ACTION! Join Disability Network Northern Michigan, Project Cinema Michigan, the screenwriter, director, and stars of the movie, and other community members at this exciting premiere of SHEETS of SAND.

SHEETS of SAND centers on a young woman with mild Cerebral Palsy and her emerging self confidence in a world of prejudice and judgement. This short film is based on the winning screenplay by Northville native Natalie Lomske. Natalie received $500 and the opportunity to have her script crafted into a short film by Brauer Productions, Inc.

The movie premiere is at the State Theatre in downtown Traverse City on Monday, April 29, from 6 – 7 p.m. In addition to the film itself, there will be a screening of a short behind-the-scenes video created by UpNorth TV, and a lively Q & A will follow with the producers.

Tickets are $5 and the proceeds will be divided between Disability Network Northern Michigan,, and The State Theatre. 

During production, six professional film department heads mentored nine interns from the TBA Career Tech Center, NMC Audio Technology Department and other enthusiastic individuals. Interns were taught the physical, mental, creative and social skills required to produce a dramatic film.

Project Cinema MI created the competition to offer writers the chance to share their work and compete in this very unique project. There were 34 entrees judged by 19 film professionals across the U.S. 

We hope you’ll join us at this exciting, community event supporting emerging artists and actors, and bringing heightened awareness around disabilities.
