Everyone loves a good summer sunset over Lake Michigan, and stargazing from a comfy campsite can't be beat. If you're looking to watch something a bit more cinematic, however, the West Michigan film community has got you covered, too.

Let's face it – everyone loves summer. There's the new-found freedom from academic obligations, plenty of chances to soak up that vitamin D and of course, miles of immaculate beachfront on the West Michigan coast. For hardcore film fans though, it can be a tenuous time.

May Indie Film: The Jewish Film Festival Enters Its 16th Year

May is a magical time of year. College classes are either over or nearing completion, the flowers are blooming and we're finally far enough removed from winter to fully embrace spring, to blaze down the road, sunglasses on, windows down, blaring Hall and Oates on the radio.

It's well known that April showers bring May flowers, but it's nothing short of a bummer to be confined inside while the heavens release their tentative torrential downpour. At such times, the best thing to do is to stay comfortably dry in your local theater, watching movies til the flowers bloom.

The Academy Awards are great and all, but sometimes it's even more fun to check out new and lesser-known projects by the smaller guys the academy hasn't even heard of. This month, West Michigan offers a variety of events to experience the best (and worst) independent cinema has to offer.

Let's be honest – February got the short end of the stick as far as months go. Nestled smack dab in the middle of winter, it's a point in time where the snow and ice has lost its charm, but spring is nowhere near close. Lose yourself in film this month and forget about what it's like outside.

December Indie Film: Screaming Eagle Charles Bradley; Medora at UICA

Well, it's officially December, which means the holidays are in full swing. Of course, after your 20th cup of eggnog and the umpteenth rendition of "Frosty the Snowman," a break from festivities may be necessary to keep from becoming a total Scrooge. Perhaps a trip to the theater would do the trick?
