News

GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM)-A film shot in the Grand Rapids area is making its big screen debut.

The cast and crew of "The Genesis Code" filled Celebration Cinema North Wednesday evening for the film's premiere. It's part of the second annual Grand Rapids Film Festival. C. Thomas Howell acted in and directed "The Genesis Code."

"The people and the talent involved [in "The Genesis Code"] are all basically from here, except for a few of us from Los Angeles, said Howell. "So it's a big moment not only for me as a filmmaker but for western Michigan as a destination to continue making more films."

The Grand Rapids Film Festival runs through Sunday at Celebration Cinema North. This year, it's featuring nearly 60 films.

"The Genesis Code" opens to the public this weekend.
