ABOUT THE TRAVERSE CITY FILM FESTIVAL

The Traverse City Film Festival (TCFF) is a charitable, educational, nonprofit organization committed to the idea that “One Great Movie Can Change You: Just Great Movies” and to helping save one of America’s few indigenous art forms — the cinema. In addition to running the State and Bijou by the Bay historic theaters year-round in downtown Traverse City, Michigan, TCFF holds an annual film festival for one week in late July, bringing hundreds of films and filmmakers from around the world to a dozen venues in Northern Michigan for a week of movie magic supported by a team of hundreds of local volunteers. The festival is entering its 15th year.

The festival also presents classic movies free of charge on a giant, inflatable outdoor screen overlooking Grand Traverse Bay in the Open Space at dusk. Free panel discussions with directors, writers, actors, and other members of the film industry are offered daily. And an affordable film school runs throughout the festival, offering twice daily classes for film students and film lovers.

Academy Award-winning director Michael Moore is the Festival’s founder and volunteer programmer, selecting the best of cinema's present and past.
