Lansing launches first Capital City Film Festival

Live concerts, local showcase among April 14-17 event


The first Capital City Film Festival will take place April 14-17 throughout Lansing. On tap for the festival is a Made-in-Michigan Showcase, a Student Film Series and a retrospective honoring John Hughes, a Lansing native.

Live concerts will cap off each evening in venues stretching from Michigan Avenue to Old Town Lansing. "The festival is providing a diverse line-up of entertainment at the end of each day," said CCFF entertainment coordinator Jake Pechtel. "We're bringing in some amazing national, regional and local musicians to make this festival truly one of a kind in Michigan."

The four-day lineup for the Capital City Film Festival, presented by Lake Trust Credit Union, is now available online and tickets are on sale. Lansing's first film festival is offering affordable full-festival passes and individual event tickets through the CCFF website.

"Thanks to our generous sponsors, we're able to keep ticket prices low; comparable to commercial theater prices. We're also offering a discounted rate for students in order to keep the event accessible to everyone," said festival coordinator Nicole Sclafani.

Festival passes are $65 for students, $75 for adults and $100 for VIP. Individual screening tickets start at $6. To check out the CCFF lineup, purchase passes or individual event tickets, or to become a volunteer, visit the website at

The Capital City Film Festival (CCFF) is a film industry showcase for independent artists created by Lansing filmmakers and cinephiles. CCFF promotes and celebrates student and independent filmmakers with an emphasis on homegrown talent and Michigan made films. CCFF 2011 exposes mid-Michigan movie lovers to engaging seminars, films, documentaries and musical performances in a four day festival taking place in several venues across Lansing.
