NYC Screening

July 04, 2007

We’re proud to announce that our latest short film, “In Burnt Norton” (2006, 14 minutes, 8mm), will screen on August 1st in New York City at the Anthology Film Archives as part of their New Filmmakers series. The short film program begins at 7 p.m. and “Norton” will be the third film to screen. A feature screening will follow at 8 p.m.

Coincidentally, tonight (July 4th) a documentary called “The End of New Music” is screening at the Archives, also as part of the New Filmmakers series, which prominently features “Norton” music composer Missy Mazzoli and her co-conspirators in Free Speech Zone. The New York Times covered the film this morning, and major congrats to Missy, Judd, David and Stephen! Missy is also was recently named executive director of the MATA Festival, a prominent new-music series that originated as Music at the Anthology.

The archives were created in 1969 when Jerome Hill, P. Adams Sitney, Peter Kubelka, Stan Brakhage, and Jonas Mekas drew up plans to create a museum dedicated to the vision of the art of cinema as guided by the avant-garde sensibility. It is the longest running screening series in New York and one of the longest running ones in the nation. Films such as the Blair Witch project got their start via this series, and New Filmmakers has received some great press from the New York Post recently (see URL below). L Magazine also named it one of the “5 Best Local Indie Screening Series,” where “the best work from the cityís countless young auteurs is showcased, after a boozy, meet-and-greet reception.”

Sounds like our kind of gig, and we hope to see you there! The Archives are at 32 Second Avenue (and E. 2nd St.) and tickets are $5.
