TCFF 2016 Centerpiece Screening Announced

THIS JUST IN — big news for the 2016 Traverse City Film Festival’s first day of ticketing:
Our Centerpiece Film this year on Friday night of the fest is the amazing new documentary by Oscar nominee Joe Berlinger (“Paradise Lost” Trilogy) entitled “Tony Robbins: I am Not Your Guru.” Joe will be with us in person, and to top it off…
Tony Robbins is coming to Traverse City! Live! In Person! With the movie!
LOWRESRobbins is an American superstar, counselor to world leaders, pundits, and celebrities. Now Joe Berlinger has made a film that takes us behind the scenes of Robbins’ mammoth seminar he calls “Date with Destiny.” 
There are 2,500 people in the room, and your eyes will be so glued to the screen, you will never think of the words “self-help” in the same way again.
Anticipating a large turnout, for the first time ever, we are going to hold two back-to-back Centerpiece screenings on the same night, July 29 — with Robbins appearing at both screenings.
This is a film that will shake you up, and you won’t even see it coming. It’s an unapologetic look at someone who seems to be a lot of people’s “self-help guru,” but is perhaps the kind of person we all need right now. It’s powerful — and not at all what you’d expect.
You can see me, Tony, Joe, AND this great film at two powerhouse screenings of this emotional concert of a film: 6 pm at the State Theatre, and 9 pm at Lars Hockstad. Check your cynicism at the door! Tickets are $25 and are available to Friends of the Film Festival today beginning at 6 pm online at
Please note: To accommodate these screenings, “My Blind Brother” at Lars at 9 pm on Friday has been moved to Friday, July 29 at 6 pm at the Old Town Playhouse. 
See you at the revival! 🙂
