Actress Lily Tomlin to Receive Lifetime Achievement Award in Traverse City

Filmmaker and Michigan native Michael Moore is expected to honor legendary comic and actress Lily Tomlin with a Lifetime Achievement Award at this year’s Traverse City Film Festival.

Tomlin will be honored on July 30 when the festival begins.

That’s one year after her “Grace and Frankie” co-star Jane Fonda was honored with the same award at the film festival.

Tomlin is also expected to participate in a keynote conversation with Moore and attend a festival screening of a documentary about her Tony-winning play “Appearing Nitely.”

The Traverse City Film Festival is set to run July 30 through August 4.
