TCFF suing TCSFF is stuff and nonsense

Traverse City Film Festival suing Traverse City Short Film Festival for trademark infringement is a whole lot of stuff and nonsense if not down right bullying. Here's how it works in the the big city where people don't seem to be confused by such trifles:

Los Angeles Film Festival

Los Angeles Arthouse Film Festival

Los Angeles Brazilian Film Festival

Los Angeles…

Traverse City Film Festival: Babies At The Box Office

Traverse City Film Festival: Shorts For Kids

Taking my 5-year-old and 7-yr-old to children's movies at the Traverse City Film Festival is becoming a family tradition.  My oldest son especially is truly developing an appreciation for good films and still talks about "Kiriku and the Sorceress" I took him to see last year.  He also remembered the family of…

Traverse City Film Festival: Empire Strikes Back

My favorite part of the movie "Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back" is how everyone is dressed for snow, but Han Solo recklessly dons a jaunty windbreaker.  He's way too cool to be cold. …

Traverse City Film Festival: “Please Give” To Art Form Film

It is such a pleasure to view films at the Traverse City Film Festival because the audience always brings a receptive attitude. When I was living in Hollywood and working in the film business I usually viewed independent film screenings with a critical… Continue

Traverse City Film Festival: Where’s The Throbbing Angst In Short Fiction?

There is no question that the short shorts exhibited at Thursday night’s presentation of Short Fiction 1 are “just great films”. All selections revolved around the theme of relationships and, as such, even the comedies tended to be more serene in tone compared to many short shorts on the circuit. Three of the 9 short films featured senior citizens and a fourth was a period piece about the allure of mid-century pin-up girls. I… Continue

Traverse City Film Festival: Innocence & Naked Humanity In "Kirikou And The Sorceress"

What a liberating experience it was to enjoy an animated feature with my children that simultaneously respected their innocence and presented them with some naked humanity.



Kirikou and the Sorceress screened this morning at the Traverse City Film Festival and I attended with my 4-year- and 6-year-old sons. This animated film is a loose representation of a West African… Continue

Traverse City Film Festival: Tiny Furniture Sweet Talks Traverse City

Tiny Furniture did some sweet talkin’ to become a big hit with last night’s Traverse City Film Festival audience. It is a testament to the sophistication of its humor that this movie, about a recent college grad resisting becoming an independent adult, was so enthusiastically received by the TCFF crowd which tends to skew older (average audience member appeared to be age 35+).… Continue

Kindergartener Starting A Pokemon Club

My son Dominik is a Kindergartener in Traverse City and a huge fan of Pokemon. He is starting a Pokemon Club for other young kids like him. The most charming part about this new club is the chain of command in the leadership. Dominik has named himself "President". His little brother David is "Vice President", but Dominik also hands out additional Vice Presidencies to his friends as the mood strikes. There are three Vice Presidents that I'm aware of, so chances are good that if your… Continue
