TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) — More than 150 movies are scheduled to be shown during the ninth annual Traverse City Film Festival, which gets underway Tuesday and runs through Sunday.
Founded by Oscar winner and Michigan native Michael Moore, the festival is designed to showcase independent and foreign films, documentaries and under-the-radar domestic movies.
The opening-night feature Tuesday will be Woody Allen’s “Blue Jasmine.” Broadway actress Elaine Stritch will be on hand for a screening of the documentary, “Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me,” while former Labor Secretary Robert Reich will attend a panel discussion and showing of his film, “Inequality for All.”
Also scheduled is an early showing of the comedy “We’re the Millers,” starring Jennifer Aniston, Jason Sudeikis and Emma Roberts.
The festival will feature the grand opening of a bayside theater.
