From Thursday, June 6 through Sunday, June 9 take the short trip up north to Ann Arbor for a rare taste of the best films of the Sundance, Cannes, Venice, Toronto, and Berlin film festivals all in one place during the Cinetopia International Film Festival. Following a stellar debut in 2012, Cinetopia enters its second year with a line-up of over 40 films, and adds the DIA’s Detroit Film Theater to its venue list, which also includes the Michigan and State Theaters, and UM’s Angell Hall. This year's highlights include Big Sur, which explores Jack Kerouac's time in coastal California which inspired his novel of the same name (June 8, 1:45pm & June 9 8:30pm, Michigan Theater), the Tim Roth and Cillian Murphy led Broken (June 8, 7pm, Detroit Film Theatre & June 9, 8pm, State Theater), and a festival-long symposium on acclaimed auteur, Robert Altman.
