Excitement Builds for 15th Annual Traverse City Film Festival

The 15th annual Traverse City Film Festival starts next week!

Crowds of more than 120,000 people are expected to view the over 100 films at this year’s event.

Everybody from children, adults, film buffs and future filmmakers will find something to pique their interests.

TC Film Fest founder Michael Moore says that’s what makes movies so special.

“People still love going to the movies, even though you can watch it at home, you can watch it on cable, watch it on your phone. There’s still something very special about getting out of the house and going in, sitting in the dark with a couple hundred strangers and experiencing this thing that you’re watching collectively,” said Moore.

Detroit native Lily Tomlin will be receiving a lifetime achievement award from the TC Film Fest and have a Q&A session with Michael Moore after a biopic about her life.
