"We are grateful for the extra resources to make our festival even better and to support the motion picture arts in Michigan. We are also thankful for the efforts of Knepper Development Strategies to help get us this grant," Jason Markstrom, Soo Film Festival president.

Organizations receiving a MACC grant award are required to match those funds with other public and private dollars. Local support of Soo Film Festival includes the Sault Ste. Marie Convention and Visitors Bureau and the Roberts P. and Ella B. Hudson Foundation.
