It Came from Lake Michigan was Racine`s first film festival and convention, which saluted Science Fiction, Horror, and Fantasy films with an emphasis on Midwest filmmakers.
The festival managed to attract fillmakers and film enthusiasts from Wisconsin, but also from across the world. Special guests from the film industry visited the festival too, giving fans and other filmmakers the chance to meet and talk with them. You could get autographs and things like that, or you could just chat about film.
Although the festival is no longer running, it was a great time and had a big impact on the local film community!
It Came From Lake Michigan Film Festival isn't the only festival that has stopped running. HBO Comedy Festival, Hazel Wolf, Filmstock, DocMiami, Daytona Beach Festival, Dark Carnival, CineVegas, Cardiff, Black Earth Film Festival, Big MINI, Angelus, Amelia Island, Optronica, Temecula, Big River, and Muskegon have all ended their festivals.
