2017 gave us plenty of good with a healthy dose of bad. Perhaps the best new thing 2017 brought us was the Vidlings & Tapeheads Film Festival in Hamtramck. Anyone looking for a place that supports the arts and culture, with a heavy dose of blue collar work ethic, and buzzing with positive energy, need look no further than Hamtramck, Michigan. Vidlings & Tapeheads Film Festival fits perfectly within those ethos of Hamtramck. VTFF makes its return for year two later this month, and it has filmmakers, cinephiles, audiophiles and art enthusiasts eager for what’s sure to be an enjoyable weekend of festivities. We’ll chat with Vidlings & Tapeheads founder and director, Jerry White Jr. and give you the lowdown on this year’s lineup. Remember, as always, support #MiFilmFestivals!
