Capital City Film Festival has something for everyone
The Capital City Film Festival is underway – and the nine-day festival has something for everyone – short films, feature films and other interactive media.
“There are documentaries here from Michigan. There are good student shorts like Grand Valley and MSU,” said William Corbett, the film festival’s lead organizer.
“But we also have movies from all over the world and that’s really cool because we’ll be doing Q&As with some of the filmmakers there. Sometimes we do them in person and we also have a few virtual ones,” Samantha said. Le, who served on the festival’s planning committee.
The festival also includes music and competitions.
“What’s great about the Capital City Film Festival is that it’s not just movies, we have all types of events, including music events, we’re having a poetry event this year for the first time, which is also very exciting to me,” Le mentioned said.
Attendees told me it was fun to watch the shorts on Saturday because they’re works you might not be able to see elsewhere.
“Where the Die Winds were my favorite, it was really sad, it was sort of a war. I just think the way they illustrated it was really cool – it also showed the perspective in the water which was really unique,” said Raven Norris who attended the festival on Saturday.
If you missed the festival today, don’t worry, you still have plenty of opportunities to experience all the events. The festival continues until Sunday, April 16.
