Waterfront Film Festival has announced they are set to open their new screening and event facility with an open house on June 7.

Waterfront Film Festival will open Waterfront Film Studio in Holland on Thursday, June 7, from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m.

The facility is located near downtown Holland on Columbia Ave. It will be home to Waterfront Film Festival headquarters. The space can also be used as a 125-seat theater and rented out for corporate events, weddings and other events.

The opening also marks a major transition for the film festival as it moves from a 4-day annual festival to single screenings and year-round events.

The building was previously a renovated auto body shop. The transformation has taken about two years. The new facility features two large garage doors which can open up to create an indoor/outdoor space. There are also plans for further expansion including landscaping, outdoor seating and a reception area.
