#LakeEffects Film Series: HAZARDS

April 2 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join Michigan Sea Grant this spring for a FREE five-part film series about our incredible Great Lakes. Sponsored by Detroit Public TV’s Great Lakes Now and the University of Michigan Great Lakes Theme Semester, the #LakeEffects series will feature fascinating documentary films, short videos, and Q&A sessions with subject matter experts.

On April 2, join us for the first night, focusing on the theme of “HAZARDS.” Featured films include Great Lakes, Bad Lines and The Forever Chemicals. The films will be followed by a Q&A panel with several special guests, including a UM student who started his own clothing company!

To make sure you can stay healthy while enjoying fabulous Great Lakes documentaries and short films, all sessions of the #LakeEffects Film Series will now be streamed online ONLY! All films will now be livestreamed over Zoom, starting at 7pm. Our guest speakers will be joining remotely as well, so you’ll still get the full film series experience — with your own bowl of popcorn in the comfort of your home or office.

While the on-campus screenings have been canceled, it’s easy to join remotely. Just use the Zoom link below to join the livestream with your computer, tablet, or smartphone, starting at 7pm on Thursdays from now through April 9. Save that link, because you can use the same for one each night of the series.
