EVUE Mid-Michigan’s November is all about local film. Michael McCallum, who is featured on the cover in his own classic car, is a Lansing-based director and actor with a love for film noir. He’s

a relentless promotional hustler that’s constantly entering his work into film festivals across the map. He started his company Rebel Pictures after he began taking some film classes at Lansing Community College back in 1997 — he never stopped. He creates films from the ground up, taking part in every step of the

filmmaking process. He’s a DIY kind of guy. Though he’s quick to point out his local friends/associates at Rebel Pictures are vital to each film’s success. McCallum is a grassroots, community-first thinker, which is likely why his name is becoming more and more known across Mid-Michigan.

SCHEDULE 24 Daily Events and Best Bets

Other talented area filmmakers will also be showcased this month at the

East Lansing Film Festival (ELFF). REVUE talked with ELFF director Susan Woods and Erika Noud, director of the Lake Michigan Film Competition (a localized part of ELFF). While East Lansing still (despondently) has no independent movie theater

— or any movie theater at all, events like the ELFF keep the creative spirit of film alive in the city. If you’re a student interested in film, be sure to check out the fest Nov. 9-17. Woods said she’s noticed a huge drop in student attendance. If you have any news tips on creative local film makers or film events,
