This year, give the gift of a Traverse City Film Festival sponsorship! Our sponsors have first access to tickets (even before Friends of the Film Festival!), special early entry into films and events at all venues, a party and movie just for them, and so much more!

Over 100,000 admissions experience the magic of Traverse City in late July each summer as the Traverse City Film Festival presents Just Great Movies in one of the most beautiful and unique resort areas in the United States.

Our sponsors make it possible for us to keep the festival grassroots, focused on the art and love of movies. Sponsors play a crucial role in creating the economic, community, and cultural benefits that flow from the festival — a festival which they have played such a key role in building! We hope you will join us as part of this year’s sponsor family.
