What’s It All About?

The Traverse City Film Festival (TCFF) is committed to showing great movies that both entertain and enlighten the audience. The festival was founded by Academy Award-winning director Michael Moore.

It presents classic movies free of cost on a giant, inflatable outdoor screen overlooking Grand Traverse Bay in the Open Space at dusk. Free panel discussions with directors, writers, actors and other members of the film industry are offered daily. Also, an affordable film school runs throughout the festival, offering twice daily classes for film students and film lovers.


Watch Out For!

Opening Night Film

I, Daniel Blake

Self-reliant Daniel Blake, a 59-year-old carpenter in England, suddenly finds himself in need of government assistance after suffering a debilitating heart attack. But he quickly discovers that the dehumanising welfare system is set up to deter people from receiving aid, rather than to help those in need. With the assistance of a young single mother he meets during his ordeal, Daniel attempts to stand up and fight the bureaucratic forces stifling his dignity.

 Indian Connect


Newton is an idealistic young office clerk volunteering to be a poll worker. He’s keen to put his energy to good use and help his country. When he is presented with an opportunity to head up a dangerous polling station in the deepest jungle, which has been besieged by communist troops for decades, Newton eagerly jumps at it to prove his mettle. The film is directed by Amit V Masurkar and features Rajkummar Rao, Anjali Patil, Pankaj Tripathi and Raghubir Yadav.


The textile industry has been booming in Western India since the 1960s, evolving with little regard for its labour force. This nightmarish exposé uses footage collected primarily from a factory in Gujarat to take you behind the scenes to expose the harsh conditions labourers endure, and uses intimate first person interviews to demonstrate the impact on health and home life. The film is directed by Rahul Jain.

Closing Film


On the night of July 25, 1967, amidst the bloody turmoil of the Detroit race riots, a group of young men and women decided to duck into the Algiers Motel in the hope of staying out of trouble. When their night of partying and playing around leads to one of them jokingly firing a starter pistol, trouble comes blasting through the windows and doors in the form of the local and state police and National Guardsmen, all looking for a sniper. A horrifying and brutal chain of events follows, including several beatings and the death of three black teenagers. The film is directed by Oscar winner Kathryn Bigelow.
