"The Campaign," the new comedy starring Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis, has joined the lineup of the Traverse City Film Festival.

The political funfest will be shown at 6:15 p.m. Aug. 4 during the northern Michigan festival, which has become a highlight of the state's annual arts schedule.

Director Jay Roach of "The Campaign" will be in attendance for a question-and-answer session following the movie. Roach also helmed the Ben Stiller hit "Meet the Parents."

In "The Campaign," Ferrell plays an incumbent candidate whose congressional seat is challenged by a naive newcomer portrayed by Galifianakis.

"The Campaign" opens Aug. 10 in metro Detroit.
