Traverse City Film Festival
Ten Years of Success - How it Came About
March 25, 6:30 PM
History Center, 322 Sixth Street, TC
Ten years ago, Michael Moore and four friends hatched the idea of holding a film festival in Traverse City. Now, eight venues later, the Traverse City Film Festival (TCFF) is in the vanguard of top film festivals. Co-Founder John Robert Williams, a famed local photographer, will be our guest to share this history and his vision for the future.
TCFF is committed to showing "Just Great Movies" and helping to save one of America's few indigenous art forms - the cinema. TCFF has grown to become one of the largest film festivals in the Midwest and one of the most respected in the country. 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.
Join John Robert Williams to learn how TCFF has grown to over 119,000 admissions, screening over 188 movies, of which 123 showings were sold out. Also learn how you can volunteer to make the TCFF "one great event."
