The Traverse City Film Festival is back again, and will run through Sunday. New movies are screened at 5 venues, but the highlight of the festival are the outdoor movies on an inflatable screen shown at the Open Space. The festival has attracted celebrities, filmmakers, and film critics from around the globe, but Traverse City residents and visitors love to outdoor film screenings.
"Traverse City is incredibly passionate about film and movies," said Bob Deutsch, president of Outdoor Movies, a Washington, D.C.-based company that's handling lighting, sound and screen chores at the Open Space. "People come down and meet a neighbor they didn't know they had. It's a really ... great way to build community." (Traverse City Record-Eagle)
The outdoor film screenings include food and vendors for a fully fun experience. The screenings are well-attended, and people love to talk to neighbors while waiting in line. The outdoor film festival also attracts attention to the downtown shops and restaurants.
Good weather is expected for the duration of the outdoor film festival, so join the thousands of movie-goers visiting Traverse City for a memorable outdoor movie experience.
