Spent a night tied up right where that boat is. Had dinner and cocktails at the Cove. Underway in the morning past the Manitou islands and on to Arcadia.

Awesome pic 💞 can't wait for July to be up in that area. Love Fishtown.

Love ❤️ such a great place 🌼🌞

I remember back around 2008-2010 a wall of thick fog rolled all the way up pearl street past the lodge into the country club.

Reminds me of Cannery Row

Absolutely Beautiful!!!

Traverse City Film Festival – July 30 – August 4, 2019

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.

Thanks, TCFF!

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

Hey everybody👋 We’re gonna be sharing some TCFF selections that are readily available on streaming services for you to revisit or discover while you are flattening the curve. Our first pick from back in 2015 is the ultimate example of how art and creativity are essential in times of isolation. ... See MoreSee Less

What are the dates for the festival this year

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!!!

So many great posters—hard to choose! 🍒

Wow! A lot of talented students!

So hard to pick. They are really good.

Cancel this stupid festival forever
