Found Footage Fest tickets still available

FoundFootageFestival

Joe and Nick are coming to Seattle and bringing their Found Footage Fest back to Central Cinema, this time for two nights. In the past we have had to squeeze three back-to-back shows into one night to accommodate their hectic tour schedule. This year we get to spread it out a little over both Thursday and Friday December 4th & 5th. Joe and Nick are so funny it literally hurts to go to their show. Vol. 7 is their latest installment of new material dug up from the FFF cave. These shows always sell out but there is still some room at all three showtimes. Don’t let your procrastinating self miss out this year, go get some tickets now before its too late………

Bonebat 2014 this Saturday

Have you ever chewed your fingernail down to the point where it bled, but the act of chewing was so strangely satisfying that you just kept chewing and chewing until you were all the way up to your shoulder? Of course not. That’s insane. But the fact that you read this far means that you are the kind of person who would enjoy the fourth annual “Comedy of Horrors” Film Festival, April 26th.
“What’s a “Comedy of Horrors” Film Festival?” you ask.
“Didn’t your mom teach you not to talk with your mouth full?” I reply.
The “Comedy of Horrors” Film Festival is a massive serving of horror and comedy: feature-length films and short films. And there is live music. And prizes. There are a LOT of prizes. Yah. All of that. Is it any surprise that Movie Maker Magazine called the fest one of the coolest film festivals in the world?

This Is Roller Derby

Join us for a free screening of This is Roller Derby this Sunday at 2:30.
Director Daniel Hayward is in Seattle for the screening.

Filmed over 12 months, This Is Roller Derby is a colorful and action packed documentary examining the cultural phenomenon of modern roller derby; a full contact sport played by women on roller skates. From its roots in Austin, Texas, it has become the fastest growing women’s sport in the world. Nowhere is this more evident than in Australia – not only for its dynamic appeal but also its subcultural influences and community spirit.

In the rural Victorian town of Ballarat Australia, a group of women from varied and diverse socio-economic backgrounds have banded together to grow their own grass-roots roller derby league hoping to become a part of the greater roller derby community. The film follows the Ballarat Roller Derby League and its skaters over the course of twelve months, juxtaposing their journey with the established Australian and Texas roller derby leagues.

This screening is FREE but you should register for tickets at thisissrollerderbyseattle.eventbrite.com
