Philadelphia Screening

The Lost Coast has two screenings in the wonderful Philadelphia Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, and you should get everyone you know on the eastern seaboard to go. The screenings are:

Prince Music Theater

1412 Chestnut Street

Wilma Theater

Click here to buy tickets.

I also want to note that Philly has my favorite program synopsis of the film so far:

“Artful and melancholy, The Lost Coast is a distinctly American take on a European art film. Taking inspiration from Antonioni, Truffaut and Godard, director Gabriel Fleming has created an intimate film overflowing with emotions. ...[plot description]... Shot with elegance and precision, Gabriel Fleming’s artful film will reverberate in your soul.”

Fancy, eh?

The Sky is Falling Blah Blah

Interesting news item today on the new-distribution-model issue I've been boring you with. The Sundance-winning film Ballast has dropped out of their deal with IFC, in favor of self-distribution, because they figure they'll make more money that way . Read the article here.

Also, a gloom-and-doom article from last week in IndieWire about the changing landscape of indie film distribution. Read it here.

Filmmaker Spoon-in Contest

If you can correctly identify all of the filmmakers in this photo from IFC's party at the LA Film Festival, I will give you a spoon. Like, a regular spoon for eating soup.

Here's a head start: The first three are PJ Raval, director of Trinidad, then myself, then Barry Jenkins, director of Medicine for Melancholy, then... fill in the blanks for your prize!

(What, you think it's unfair because you can't see everyone's face? Well then just look at their ankles. (I'm sure that will be enough for some of you.))
