Downtown stores display film-related fare. At the theatre Cecily manned the souvenir table -- customers few and far between. For now.
A few folks meandered up to read the list of films. Festival staffers hung around the perimeter, ready to roll. But the only real action today -- the PURE dance and music troupe bringing "change, beauty and awareness to the world," not to mention drum music and Middle Eastern-style dancing, as they sashayed up and down Front Street. But, not to worry, the Traverse City Film Festival
is a-coming. Coming soon. To six venues near you!
