The Capitol City Film Festival (also commonly referred to by its initials: CCFF) is a four-day event that celebrates the diverse vision of artists from around the world, with an emphasis on Michigan-made, homegrown talent, and shares them with the growing crowd of attending music and movie lovers.
Not just movies, the Capitol City Film Festival includes unique musical performances, and engaging seminars as well as exhibitions of international and local films.
Both the film and band roster for Capitol City Film Festival 2015 have yet to be announced in full but they have announced the inclusion of mewithoutYou, an American rock band from Philadelphia whose music tends towards spoken-word vocals and free-ranging drums, bass, and guitar. They’ll be appearing at The Loft in downtown Lansing on Sunday, April 12th.
While they have yet to announce a full festival schedule, they have created a teaser trailer that, while short, should get your cinephile heart beating a little faster:
