Traverse City Film Festival board adds star power

Posted: Updated:

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) - The Traverse City Film Festival is getting a little more star power on its board.

The Traverse City Record-Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/1s6rGP2 ) that festival officials on Wednesday announced five additions to the board, including actor and playwright Jeff Daniels and former Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello.

The festival is in its 10th season. It was co-founded by documentary filmmaker and Michigan native Michael Moore. He says the expansion augments the festival's growth into a position of national and international importance in the film industry.

Other new board members include Mark Cousins, a film critic and director; and Tia Lessin, who produced and directed "Trouble the Water," an Academy Award-nominated Hurricane Katrina portrait. The festival's board now includes 11 members.

The festival is scheduled July 29-Aug. 3.
