The festival brings films with a limited release to Traverse City, Mich., about 250 miles northwest of Detroit.
Though Kids opened on only a handful of screens last weekend, Lisa Cholodenko's film grossed $505,000. The film is about a family headed by a lesbian couple (played by Annette Bening and Julianne Moore) who come face to face with the biological father (Mark Ruffalo) of their near-adult children.
Kids will open the festival along with Nowhere Boy, which takes a look at the childhood of musical legend John Lennon. The festival will also pay tribute to the Fab Four with screenings of A Hard Day's Night and Help!
