This morning founder Michael Moore announced that the second annual Traverse City Film Festival will expand to seven days (Monday, July 31 to Sunday, August 6) and screen nearly 50 movies. This year’s festival will pay a special tribute to the films of Stanley Kubrick on the 50th anniversary of his first feature film. All 11 Kubrick films, including “Dr. Strangelove” and “A Clockwork Orange,” plus “Spartacus,” “2001: A Space Odyssey,” “Lolita,” “The Shining” and others, will be screened in what is believed to be the country’s only complete retrospective of his films this year.
The festival will also add a “guest director” (Terry George, director of “Hotel Rwanda”), midnight movies, and pay homage to the films of David O. Russell, with showings of “Three Kings” and other movies. Free panels will feature Malcolm McDowell, Matthew Modine, as well as Moore, George and Russell.
