The Traverse City Film Festival is 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 also owns and operates a year-round, community-based, mission driven art house movie theater, the State Theatre. Founded by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Michael Moore and co-founders local photographer John Robert Williams and New York Times best-selling author Doug Stanton, with filmmakers Larry Charles, Terry George, Sabina Guzzanti, and Christine Lahti rounding out the Board of Directors, the festival brings films and filmmakers from around the world to northern Michigan. It has grown to become one of the largest film festivals in the Midwest, and one of the most respected in the country.
