Open Space People’s Choice Voting is Live!

19501636214_7b405ab277_b We are making our final decisions about what films will play at this year’s Traverse City Film Festival, July 26 – 31 — an epic year that will celebrate 100 years of moviegoing magic as we toast the State Theatre’s Centennial 1916-2016!

But one very important thing is still missing from our program…YOU. Each year we ask you to choose the film we show on Friday night at the Open Space. Michael has watched hundreds and hundreds of movies this year in order to bring you the best possible lineup of undiscovered gems from the world over, so if you could do him a solid and help pick one more, we sure would appreciate it!

20175124415_9a81da0d22_b2016 OPEN SPACE PEOPLE’S CHOICE VOTE

  • Clueless
  • Deep Impact
  • Shrek
  • Sleepless in Seattle
  • Twilight

Voting has ended – Shrek has won!

The winning film will be shown on Friday, July 29 on our giant 65-foot inflatable screen set against the beautiful Traverse City bayfront, the centerpiece of our gift to the community, the ever-popular, always-spectacular Open Space screenings. 

We hope to see you by the bay Tuesday, July 26 through Sunday, July 31 for music, entertainment, and fun beginning at 7 pm. Movies hit the screen at dusk. There’s no better place to gather with family, friends, and neighbors to enjoy summertime in glorious Northern Michigan than at our outdoor cinema under the stars. 

Results of the People’s Choice vote will be announced along with the full festival schedule on Friday, June 24. So vote now, and stay tuned!
