"I have been looking forward to visiting the Traverse City Film Festival because I have heard so many good things about it," said Chaz Ebert. "My only regret is that Roger won't be there with me. I still remember when Roger reviewed Michael Moore's first movie, 'Roger & Me,' at the Telluride Film Festival and what a breakthrough that was in documentary film history." 

Chaz continues: "This movie has been so cathartic for me and my family and we are happy to share it with Traverse City. My daughter Sonia and my granddaughter Raven have been pillars of strength for me. I am so happy that Michael Moore invited it to his festival. I am also looking forward to the other films at the festival."

Other notable films at this year's festival include Kat Candler's "Hellion," Ryan Murdock's "Bronx Obama," Todd Douglas Miller's "Dinosaur 13," Lucia Puenzo's "The German Doctor," and Andrew Rossi's "Ivory Tower."
