The Grand Valley State University 2012 Summer Film Project "Realizism," will be released to local audiences during a premier screening at Celebration Cinema North.

Admission is $5, including a post-screening reception. DVDs of the film will be on sale in lobby for $10. All proceeds help to fund future films.

The Summer Film Project was established by the School of Communications in 1995 to offer Grand Valley junior and senior students an opportunity to work side-by-side with industry professionals to produce a short film.

Written and directed by Mitch Nyberg, a 1983 Grand Valley alumnus, this comic tale features Grand Rapids actor Joe Anderson and Saugatuck actress Melissa Anschutz in the lead roles of Jake and Cheryl. They play a married couple who must deal with downward social mobility after foreclosure ousted them from their cushy home in the suburbs and into the gritty reality of the urban jungle and a vast real estate conspiracy.
