DETROIT DOCS: Film fest continues to grow, with more documentaries from around the world

A front-page story in the Entertainment section discusses this year\'s Detroit Docs festival running Thursday through Sunday at Wayne State University, the Detroit Film Center, the Detroit Institute of Arts and the Birmingham 8 theater complex. More than 30 filmmakers will appear with their films and in workshops. When Detroit Docs started in 2002, there were about 30 films. An audience of about 1,000 attendees in the first year doubled in the second. This year, with new venues, reasonable ticket prices and a solid lineup, organizers hope to attract close to 4,000 people. A sidebar item lists the Wayne State locations for film viewings and offers details about the free opening gala 7-10 p.m. Thursday at the Wayne State Welcome Center.
