Michael Moore out as Michigan film board member
LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker Michael Moore no longer will serve on the Michigan Film Office Advisory Council after Republican Gov. Rick Snyder named a suburban-Detroit businessman to replace him.
Moore joined the council as an appointee of then-Democratic Gov. Jennifer Granholm.
Snyder announced Thursday that he was renominating a second film council member whose term was expiring along with Moore's.
The governor says Birmingham advertising executive Bill Ludwig will remain on the 14-member board, along with new member Ted Serbinski of Birmingham. Serbinski works with Detroit Venture Partners and is an ex-director of technology for A&E Television.
Their four-year terms expire in 2018.
Moore won an Academy Award for the 2002 documentary "Bowling for Columbine." Other Moore films include "Roger & Me," "Fahrenheit 9/11," "Sicko" and "Capitalism: A love Story."
