5. 41 North Film Festival

The 41 North Film Festival (formerly Northern Lights Film Festival) celebrates its 10th anniversary with a name change and an outstanding slate of recent award-winning films and special guests. It will be held Oct. 23-26 in the Rozsa Center for the Performing Arts. The festival is free. Kicking off the festival this year will be director Mark Levinson and his documentary Particle Fever, which follows six scientists involved in the launch of the Large Hadron Collider—the biggest and most expensive experiment in the history of the planet. The film, screened Thursday evening, provides an unprecedented window into this major scientific breakthrough as it happened. Edited by Academy Award–winner Walter Murch, the film celebrates human discovery and raises important questions about the limits of human knowledge. An interesting contrast to Particle Fever is The Circle, a perspective on the Large Hadron Collider from above ground. Director Bram Conjaerts delves into the experiences of the people who live above the LHC along its 27- kilometer path and how they perceive living above this massive project and its lofty goals.

Also on tap is Meet the Patels, a project that started as a family vacation video and turned into the story of actor/director Ravi Patel and his relationship with the woman of his dream and his parents. His father, in fact, is a Tech alumnus, and father and son will participate in a question-and- answer session following the screening.

Additional screenings include The Overnighters and Boyhood on Saturday, and Alive Inside and Born to Fly: Elizabeth Streb vs. Gravity on Sunday. Friday features Coherence and a collection of student Academy Award winners in addition to Meet the Patels.

This year’s festival is sponsored by the Department of Humanities, Visual and Performing Arts, the College of Sciences and Arts, the Office of Institutional Equity, and the Visiting Women & Minority Lecturer/Scholar Series (VWMLS) which is funded by a grant to the Office of Institutional Equity from the State of Michigan’s King-Chavez-Parks Initiative.
