SIFF keeps getting bigger and better!
Each year since director Patrick Schweiss took the helm of the Sedona International Film Festival, ticket sales have climbed and the list of famous Hollywood attendees gets longer and longer. Obviously, Schweiss is doing something right.
That’s why world-famous documentary filmmaker Michael Moore, who also is not-so-famously the director of the Travis City (Mich.) Film Festival, is walking around the festival taking notes!
Moore has been the ultimate Festival guest, holding spectacular Q&A sessions after each of his movies, as well as a number of other pieces he is championing, including the mesmerizing “In Troubled Waters.”
His Saturday morning “A Conversation with Michael Moore” was equally impressive. Sitting at the dais with Festival sponsor Mary Fisher, one of the world’s great humanitarians and philanthropists, Moore held a stark, frank, honest discussion about everything from the banking crisis to the Sponge Bob Square Pants movie.
