Micah Greene created the Orchard Lake Film Festival in 2004 when he approached fellow WB teacher Kevin Walsh. Together they began this event that would grow to the event that many of you know today. Micah saw the Orchard Lake Film Festival as an opportunity that would allow any student to submit their projects, have them viewed by peers, and judged by local industry professionals. He knew this event was unique because any student could submit and that industry professionals were brought in to provide workshops to the students.
I am among the many that have lost a friend, colleague, and mentor. He is loved by many and I will always be grateful for the opportunity that I had to work with him. He is one of the greatest and I am honored to have called him my friend.
