LIMA Get your motors running for this years Northwest Ohio Independent Film Festival with the kick-off event, the Grand Prix Tour, starting Saturday at The Meeting Place on Market.

This is a fundraiser to create awareness and excitement for this years festival, said Len Archibald, executive director of the festival.

The Grand Prix Tour will include six screenings of award-winning or crowd favorite movies from past festivals, each following a theme.

The initial outing will be Paradise Recovered, a 2011 audience choice. Following the movie screening, the movies producer and director team, Andie Redwine and Storme Wood, will be on hand to discuss the show and answer questions. Also on that night, another award winner, The Miracles on Honey Bee Hill will be screened.

Other events include Real Life Superheroes at Alter Ego Comics; Things I Dont Understand, at Gilberts Music and Groamys CDs and Tapes; The Selling at Milanos Cafe; Movie Mixer at The Met; and Pretty Little Things at Vino Bellissimo. Dates are not yet set.

Were planning something to coordinate with the shows at each location. At some we have question-and-answer sessions, at others we have bands, and we even have a comedy troupe at one. Its all stuff to build an audience for the film festival, Archbald said.

This years film festival is set for Sept. 19 to 22.
