The 2019 Traverse City Film Festival will be held July 30 – August 4, 2019.
The Traverse City Film Festival was founded by Oscar winning filmmaker Michael Moore as a charitable, educational, nonprofit organization committed to showing “Just Great Movies” and helping to save one of America’s few indigenous art forms — the cinema.
The festival brings films and filmmakers from around the world to northern Michigan for the annual film festival in late July to early August, and also owns and operates a year-round, community-based, mission-driven art house movie theater, the State Theatre.
Stream local! We are blown away by Magnolia Pictures' generosity and support. 👏 Stay safe, stay home, and let’s all enjoy virtual screenings of a TCFF favorite and a great rock doc while also supporting our nonprofit theaters in this time of closure. More info at stateandbijou.org or get your streaming rental below.
Riotous, endearing, and ridiculously entertaining, when comedy writer Steve Young stumbles upon the hilarious, hidden world of entertainment know as industrial musicals (Broadway style shows produced for America's corporate giants like Ford and GE) he finds not only a new obsession, but an unexpected connection to his fellow man. Told with warmth, charm, and unabashed nostalgia, Young's love for this slice of Americana cheese is infectious and life-affirming. It's a film that works its delightful magic so thoroughly you're sure to be humming tunes about bathroom fixtures ("The Bathrooms are Coming!").🎵🎶 ... See MoreSee Less
Today's pick goes out to the State Theatre's "Nick at Nite" volunteer team. The zombie musical you never knew you needed was an unexpected audience hit at the 2018 TCFF. Join Anna and her angsty friends as they fight, sing, and dance their way through the descending hordes of the undead and try to make it out of high school alive. ... See MoreSee Less

Let’s be honest, it’s getting cancelled. There’s no way in the time of need you can procure the supplies you need which this year will be in even higher demand for visitors.
It's impossible to compare art created by young people from fourth grade to college. Why such a wide range of ages?
Wether it's cancelled or not these students deserve to have thier art work showcased. So just pick your top 5 and move on. Good luck to all the contenders. Hard to choose just 5. Well done!!
Oh for gods sake people it’s okay to take a breather from this pandemic to appreciate a little artwork from some talented local students.
How long will NCF wait until they let people know when they are cancelling?
Be sure instead of listing your favorite # in the comments you are liking that picture as that is how the votes are counted. Let's keep this thread positive and give our attention to these amazing artitists!!!
