For more than a decade, the film festival, founded by Oscar-winning Filmmaker, Michael Moore, has been celebrating an array of great movies complimented by expert panel discussions, premieres, festival parties, and viewings at quintessential Northern Michigan venues throughout the Grand Traverse region. FILMGOER, also inserted into the August issue of Traverse Magazine, is widely available at area restaurants, hotels, coffee shops, and markets and available on MyNorth.com. To navigate TCFF, FILMGOER offers more than thirty pages that cover the complete film schedule, venues, panels, free flicks, Kids Fest, a restaurant guide and more!
FILMGOER features descriptions for more than 150 films being shown at TCFF, an impressive selection that has something to suit any taste. From American to Foreign flicks, and documentaries to experimental films, the festival sets the grounds for a grand exploration of cinema’s rich culture, a rare opportunity in Northern Michigan. “The Traverse City Film Festival is always a spectacular time to plan for a Northern Michigan getaway,” notes Traverse Magazine & MyNorth Media Founding Director, Deborah Wyatt Fellows, “FILMGOER allows locals and visitors alike easy access to everything they need to know for an incredible Film Festival experience.”
Filmgoers can enjoy screenings at favorite venues such as Traverse City’s State Theatre, the City Opera House, Bijou by the Bay, Old Town Playhouse, and more, made visible in an easy to use map inside FILMGOER. To make navigating the Film Festival smooth and memorable, FILMGOER provides information on where to park and a top-notch restaurant and brewery guide filled with good eats and craft brews. Additionally, this free publication highlights parties not to be missed, free movies, Kids Fest activities, and six panels including a discussion with new TCFF Board of Directors Member and Rage Against the Machine Guitarist, Tom Morello.
For those who want the quintessential Northern Michigan experience at TCFF, FILMGOER rolls in side trips for time away from the big screen. Outdoor enthusiasts will find a day trip to Sleeping Bear Dunes, ways for getting on the water, and bike rentals, while wine lovers will discover a country day trip to Old Mission Peninsula and Leelanau wineries. Fellows adds, “While FILMGOER is an essential resource to have on hand throughout the festival, folks can discover additional TCFF information and a wealth of Northern Michigan information on outdoors activities, travel planning, food & drink, and more on MyNorth.com, the online home of Traverse Magazine."
