Steve Byrne


Public bio

I'm the executive director of the doc-focused Freep Film Festival, a festival produced by the Detroit Free Press, the largest media organization in Michigan. My "day job" is arts & entertainment director at the Free Press.
I also was an associate producer on the documentary "12th and Clairmount," a Free Press-produced film that was timed to the 50th anniversary of the Detroit riot/uprising of 1967.
Independent of the Free Press, I'm also co-director/co-producer of an in-progress documentary about the writer Jim Harrison.
