Michigan native Madonna will be a headliner at this summer’s fourth annual Traverse City Film Festival. The singer/dancer/actress/activist will present her new documentary, I Am Because We Are, a film about the one million orphans in Malawi who’ve lost their parents to AIDS.
The folks at the Film Festival expect tickets for the screening to sell in a flash. They’re still working out the details (price and equitable ticket ordering methods), but this much is sure: only 540 lucky moviegoers will get to see the film and its writer/producer at its Midwest premiere. Tickets go on sale Saturday, June 7. The premiere for I am Because We Are is scheduled for Saturday, August 2. Stay tuned for more details and news at traversecityfilmfestival.org.
