The Huron Valley Film Organization launched our startup fundraiser in September of 2020 with the goal of raising $150,000 to cover our construction and startup costs, as well as provide funds for our first year of operations. With the help of our generous community members, families, and businesses, we were able to meet this fundraising goal and celebrated our grand opening on May 12, 2021.
