Ninety-nine films & bands over four days
Are you ready for an electric culture shock?
You better be, because Cimmfest, Chicago’s International Movies and Music Festival is going to rock your world April 16th – 19th.
The array of music-themed movies is overwhelming so where does one start? Perhaps the retrospective of British director Julien Temple, especially Absolute Beginners and The Filth and the Fury, his Bowie and Sex Pistols flicks, respectively. Then, check out the rhythm and soul of Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars.
Bonus: Hang out with Spike Lee Saturday, April 18 at City Winery Chicago for an evening of music, film and wine.
This is a choose-your-own-adventure festival. Analyze the schedule here and get ready for the ride.
