Submissions are now CLOSED for the 2019 festival. 

Selected films will be notified in mid to late June. Submissions will open for the 2020 festival in November.

The Traverse City Film Festival is by invitation only, but we’d love to see your films and suggestions. Filmmakers may submit films unofficially and they will be passed on to the programmer. There is no submission fee, and also no feedback mechanism — we cannot guarantee that your film will be viewed.
