The Fresh Coast Film Festival is the first of its kind: a documentary film festival celebrating the outdoor lifestyle, water-rich environment and resilient spirit of the Great Lakes and Upper Midwest. The festival will gather the best in environmental and cultural filmmaking from around the world while creating a venue for, and building a culture of, Great Lakes storytelling.

I have a Film
We're looking for outdoor and adventure films based in the Midwest. Learn more our our submission process.
Whether you'd like to be in the opening credits, have a banner at the film, or bring your own ideas, we have many sponsorship partnerships available.
I Can Help
We couldn't make all this happen without the help of many volunteers. We're looking for enthusiastic people to help sell tickets, coordinate events, and spread the good word.
