|Traverse City Film Festival||Website||Family Event||Traverse City|
festival is committed to showing "Just Great Movies" and helping to
save one of America's few indigenous art forms — the cinema. The Traverse City Film Festival has grown
to become one of the largest film festivals in the Midwest, and one of the
most respected in the country. Last year, there were over 80,000 admissions
to nearly 100 screenings, a number of them U.S. or world premieres. A special
emphasis is given to foreign films, American independents, documentaries, and
films which have been overlooked but deserve the attention of a public
starved to see a good movie.
The festival also presents classic movies free of charge on a giant, inflatable outdoor screen overlooking Grand Traverse Bay in the Open Space Park at dusk.
Panel discussions with directors, writers, actors, and other members of the film industry are offered daily.
