Great stand-up comedy, lots of famous faces... and most of all, the incredible films that you can't see just anywhere... that's the fifth annual Blue Water Film Festival, headed to McMorran on Friday the 27th and Saturday the 28th.  The festival's Kelly Kennedy tells us the whole event is geared to shine a spotlight on the Blue Water Area, with Hollywood stars staying at local hotels and other local entities joining in partnerships with the event.
