Membership rates for our fantastic Friends of the Film Festival increase on September 1! So we’ve brought together some Friends to share just a few of the reason you shouldn’t delay in signing up or renewing!
Being a friend is the savvy way to experience the festival. It gives you the inside track on festival happenings and you’ll get to purchase your tickets before the general public!
No Need to Fight
By getting your tickets a week ahead of the public, you won’t have to fight your way to get tickets to the movies and events you want to see.
YOU Make Great Things Happen for the Festival and Community
From supporting our wonderful free community offerings like the Open Space to the TCFF Student U program and beyond, the Friends of the Film Festival make this event so much more than Just Great Movies!
We couldn’t bring the over 150 filmmakers and industry guests who attend the festival without the foundational support of our Friends of the Festival!
Besides that good feeling of making great things happen for the festival, your neighbors, and the art of film, there are other perks too!
You will receive two tickets to each of our annual FRIENDS ONLY SCREENING PARTIES — two of the festival’s best films you won’t see anywhere else!
At this exclusive day of movies we treat you to drinks, popcorn, and even…CAKE!!!!
Party Time, Excellent
Friends also receive a ticket to either the Opening Night or Closing Night Party for HALF OFF! Cheers!
It’s a Breeze to Sign Up or Renew
For supporting filmmakers and film lovers from the world over who come to Traverse City to enjoy our celebration of cinema.
And just like that, our 15th year of “Just Great Movies” has come to a close! While the days pass by quickly, the memories will stay forever. Along with welcoming celebrities such as Lily Tomlin and Kathy Griffin into our TCFF fold, we also featured a world premiere film from local director Jeff Gibbs, ate and danced until the sun went down, met so many friendly faces, and so much more. Enjoy this montage film made by some of our videography volunteers that highlights a handful of our favorite moments from throughout the week. Special thanks to our volunteers and sponsors who make this amazing event possible each year!
