CIMMFest Festival Director Josh Chicoine

In 2009, Chicago musician Josh Chicoine teamed up with filmmaker Ilko Davidov and launched their first Chicago International Movies and Music Festival, or CIMMFest. The festival is what it says; an event where movies and music are intimately intertwined.  A  feature about three Brazilians who travel to India to break into the Bollywood industry, a look at how Ugandan kids use hip hop and break dancing for empowerment and  documentary about Transylvanian folk music are just a few of the many entries of CIMMFest 2011.

 Since its inaugural edition in 2009 festival director Josh Chicoine has stopped by  Radio M for a festival preview and this year is no different. We'll play some clips, and of course plenty of music related to the festival.
