Lansing — Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker Michael Moore no longer will serve on the Michigan Film Office Advisory Council after Republican Gov. Rick Snyder named Birmingham 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.”
