WRAPPING UP INDEPENDENT FILM WEEK
I’m sure there will be a few blog stragglers over the next few days as our guest posters gather their thoughts on the just concluded Independent Film Week. For now, though, thanks to all the filmmakers who joined our blog and took the time to relate their experiences. If you haven’t read their posts, scroll below and check out their first-hand accounts of trying to launch new projects at the IFP’s various programs this past week. I also recommend you click over to Hammer to Nail, where filmmaker David Lowery posted his own diary about his experiences in the Narrative Rough Cut Lab and Emerging Narrative programs.
Speaking of Hammer to Nail, Ted Hope passed along an email from Michael Tully, the editor of the site:
An incredible no-budget film called Take Out is opening on five screens in LA this weekend and they really need all the help they can get. I’ve never actually met the director, Sean Baker, but I am a HUGE fan of this movie, as well as his newest movie, Prince of Broadway, so i’m trying to spread the word in my own tiny way. Go see it, or spread the word to LA folks who might be interested. Here’s my Hammer to Nail review of the film.
I haven’t seen the film but will look forward to checking it out. If you live in L.A., check out Tully’s review and consider seeing the film this weekend.
