Super extra excited to be programmed alongside longtime friend and collaborator Annie Silverstein's lovely short Noc na Tenecku (Night at the Dance), about one of the last Czech dance halls in Texas!
Two more screenings of KISS THE PAPER just around the around the bend...
On Saturday, November 3rd, 2012, KISS THE PAPER will screen at the Rocky Mountain Women's Film Festival in Colorado Springs, Colorado. What an honor to be included in a program with so many awesome lady filmmakers!
Not too long after that, KISS THE PAPER travels to New York City for its Big Apple premiere! Couldn't be more excited to be included in the lineup for DOC NYC, where they are screening some of the very best documentaries of the year. There will be some incredible filmmakers attending the festival and showing new work. Also, super excited to be screening alongside Brian Bolster's beautiful short, THE LOOKOUT, once again. Don't miss our big show Thursday night, November 15, 2012, 7:15pm at the IFC Center!
A few opportunities to see KISS THE PAPER coming up this month...
On Wednesday, August 15th, KISS THE PAPER will screen at Scribe Video Center in Philadelphia as part of their Storyville series. The program is presented by PIFVA (Philadelphia Independent Film & Video Association), and includes new work by several Philly filmmakers, including Malia Bruker, Doris Chia-Ching Lin, and David Block. Storyville is supported by the National Endowment for the Arts and Pennsylvania Council on the Arts.
The weekend of August 18th and 19th, KISS THE PAPER screens several times at the Living History Event in historic Hillsborough, New Hampshire. KISS THE PAPER will screen alongside the popular Katemquin Films documentary TYPEFACE. Limited edition letterpress-printed KISS THE PAPER posters will be available at this event.
Last but not least, at the end of the month KISS THE PAPER travels to Birmingham, Alabama for the Sidewalk Moving Pictures Festival. KISS THE PAPER screens on Sunday, August 26th as part of the Doc Shorts program. I'm extra excited about this program because the film will screen alongside NIGHT AT THE DANCE, by my talented friend Annie Silverstein.
In recognition of Memorial Day, our film
Hell and Back Again will have its television premiere
on PBS -- Monday, May 28th at 10 p.m. all across the United States.
This is a film for anyone who is curious to know more about America's involvement in foreign wars and anyone who has friends/family who have been to war...
Mark your calendar and help us spread the word!
An artist cannot make a masterpiece unless he has opened himself and loved something enough to get it all the way over to the audience... If you keep at it and care enough, and if the gods give you an occasion... and you are full of love and excitement... and then if you have enough enthusiasm left to sit at a dusty table with it and re-construct that moment - then you get a work of art. - Brakhage
Wow. I am so incredibly behind in updating this thing! Life has been busy. But I had to drop in briefly to announce that KISS THE PAPER will be screening at two great festivals over the next few weeks.
First up, Sebastopol Documentary Film Festival, nestled in the wine country of Northern California. I hear that folks love letterpress in these parts, so I hope they'll come out for the show. The film is part of the shorts program that plays on Saturday, March 31st at 11:30am.
And then after Sebastopol, KISS THE PAPER travels back to the East Coast for the illustrious Full Frame Documentary Film Festival, which runs April 12th thru 15th in lovely Durham, North Carolina. Don't know the exact screening time yet, but Indiewire has published the official lineup of films, which looks fantastic! I'll be attending this one and can't wait to partake in the bounty... (P.S. I'm bringing letterpress printed posters, postcards, and DVDs with me!)
KISS THE PAPER will be screening next at
Big Sky Documentary Film Festival! Catch the film at the Crystal Theatre on Saturday February 18 @ 2:20 pm.
Some of our new friends from the Slamdance Americana Documentary Shorts program will also be showing their beautiful films (keep an eye out for Josh Gibson, Brian Bolster, and Kevin Gordon), along with several filmmaking pals from Seattle (Tracy Rector, Ellen Fricke, and Gretchen Burger)... Looks like it'll be a week and a half of documentary bliss out there in Montana.
