Mute Nostril Agony Tonight!
Noel Lawrence, occasional participant in CCCP-SCC (Thrift Store Movie) events, former director of Other Cinema DVDs and current keeper of the J.X. Williams archives has been moving and shaking in LA indie film circles recently. He just announced a screening of Confessions of a Superhero to benefit the oppressed superheros of Hollywood Boulevard, but this weekend he's programming the New Media Film Festival at the Downtown Independent Theater on Main Street. The NMFF emphasizes independent cinema that uses new technology, from cell phones to RED cameras to trickle-down 3D media to web-based series. Highlights include Memories of Overdevelopment, Double Take, and RiP: A Remix Manifesto, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. You have to make the whole festival to dig the sound of the Great Ship going down, torn to pieces from below.
June 11-13th 2010, at Downtown Independent Theater
251 South Main Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012
