"There's Film in Lansing".. and Music Too!

The first annual Capital City Film Festival declares, “There’s film in Lansing.” Premiering in Michigan's state capital on April 14, the four-day festival finally brings local movie-lovers what they have been waiting for... talented Michigan-made films created by independent artists incorporating a medley of genres.

Capital City Film Festival now announces, "There's music in Lansing too!" While films will be featured in various venues in Lansing from April 14 to April 17, festival attendees are invited to complete their day while enjoying nightly live music performances by nationally acclaimed and local musicians. The Festival tickets will grant access to the viewing of the daily events including the viewing of films. The tickets for the nightly performances are separate from that cost.

To commence the Capital City Film Festival, The Loft in downtown Lansing will present the opening night party on Thursday, April 14. The Midwest-based indie rock group, Margot & the Nuclear So & So’s, will headline the night with performances by Maps and Atlases, The Blue Cords, and DJ Rachel P. playing downstairs in the Harem Lounge VIP room. The doors to The Loft will open at 7:00p.m. and will welcome all ages. Tickets are $15 in advance and can be purchased here.

Following the screening of the documentary “Respiration: Feel the City Breathing” directed by Matt Orlieb on April 15, the Loft will present a Hip-Hop spectacular featuring Detroit Rapper Danny Brown and other local acts, Othello, Third Coast Kings, SelfSays, Buff1, and DJ Ruckus. Doors open at 9p.m. with the Blat!Pack hosting the event. Tickets are $15 in advance and will be available soon at the Loft's website.

Tickets for the Capital City Film Festival are now on sale on their website. Stay updated with the latest news on their tumblr page.
