Students, alumni bring U-M to the 2016 Traverse City Film Festival

The U-M Department of Screen Arts and Cultures’ Screenwriting class was just one of the many U-M connections to this year’s Traverse City Film Festival, which took place the last week of July.

In nine of the festival’s 12 years, U-M’s screenwriting program has been a sponsor. This year, LSA became a full education partner, garnering shoutouts from filmmaker and TCFF cofounder Michael Moore and cheers when the College of LSA logo appeared ahead of all the screened films at the festival.

“The partnership formed between the Traverse City Film Festival and the U-M Screenwriting program in 2009 has grown into something very unique and very special,” said Jim Burnstein, the Russell Fraser Collegiate Lecturer in Screen Arts & Cultures and director of its Screenwriting Program.
