Ferris Student Gets a Glimpse of Hollywood as PR Intern for Traverse City Film Festival

Sara Miller didn’t have to venture far from Ferris State University, nestled in Big Rapids – a hamlet in western Michigan that boasts small-town charm, an abundance of outdoor recreation opportunities and one of the state’s fastest-growing universities, to experience the glitz and glamour of Hollywood.

She’s getting a first-hand view as a public relations intern for Traverse City Film Festival.

Founded by Michael Moore, this year’s festival will feature more than 100 films created by independent filmmakers from a myriad of countries, including Iran, Cuba and Vietnam.

“Working at TCFF has been an amazing experience,” Miller said. “It’s fun, fast-paced, career-oriented work. Nothing beats a job you love. It’s not your typical job. I get to do something new and exciting every day, whether it’s working on press releases, press kits, talking to the media, setting up interviews or helping out at the office. I’ve learned to expect the unexpected.”
