TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) - Filmmaker Michael Moore says the 10th annual Traverse City Film Festival was the most popular yet, with 131,000 admissions - an increase of 12,000 over last year.

The six-day festival ended Sunday. It included showings of 128 feature films, 85 shorts, 12 film school classes, 10 “cinema salon” outdoor discussions and five panels with directors and actors. The festival brought 110 filmmakers and guests to discuss their work.

Among new twists were showings of movies on a boat cruising Grand Traverse Bay and free screenings at “The Buzz,” a theater at InsideOut Gallery.

A festival auction is raising funds for a Hollywood-style “walk of fame” in front of the historic State Theatre. It will feature handprints from Madonna, Susan Sarandon and Kristen Bell, among other luminaries.
