MANISTEE, Mich. (AP) - The Michigan Film Office has awarded incentives to a pair of movies that are shooting this month on different sides of the state.

“Believe” will film in Manistee, Grand Rapids and Muskegon. The feature directed by Michigan filmmaker Harold Cronk was awarded a $657,000 incentive.

The faith-based film tells the story of a group of seemingly unrelated people whose lives collide in a series of events.

“Grain” is to film scenes in Detroit. It was awarded an incentive of $238,000.

It’s set in an indefinite near future, where the existence of sustainable life is threatened. A genetics expert and a general chaos scientist join forces in the Dead Lands to find fresh seeds.

The film office says 19 projects have been awarded $60 million in incentives during fiscal year 2014.
