Fan Film, Fan Films

Live From New York, It’s FAN FILMS!

I’ve hosted fan film programs before, but this is the highest profile event yet—a night of fan films at the world-famous in New York City, presented as part of the NEW FILMMAKERS FESTIVAL. I’ve got five words for you:


The show is THIS FRIDAY, April 3 at 9PM, and it’s only SIX FREAKIN’ BUCKS*, so you have time to get out of work/school, go home, eat, hit the bars and still show up in time for 2 hours of classic and world-premiere fan productions (plus me doing the PowerPoint thing on the history of fan productions, enough to make you laugh, cry and buy my fan film book, Homemade Hollywood, which not-so-coincidentally will be available for purchase somewhere in the joint).

Also presenting fan films that night:
–TheForce.Net’s own ADAM BERTOCCI with the highly buzzed Brooklyn Force!
–Blinky Productions’ CHRIS NOTARILE with (world premiere to be named, probably Ultimate Daredevil)!
–Five Towns College’s DAN GALIARDI with the lip-bustin’ brawling of Iron Fist!

Sounds awesome, huh? Cursing the fact that you don’t live in New York right now? Well, if you live in Los Angeles instead, here’s a few consoling words for you: Hammer Museum, April 22, with SANDY COLLORA (Batman: Dead End) and TREY STOKES (Pink Five)!

So mark your calendar, put aside $6 from the weekly keg fund, and come on out!

PS: I’m always on the lookout for great (and SHORT) fan films to feature in these programs. If you have a killer fan film under 10 minutes that you know can stand toe-to-toe with some of the classics, drop me a line via the “Contact Me” page here on the site (It’s in the upper right corner on the menu bar).

*They’re a non-profit, so apparently they’re allowed to charge admission, which is why they hosted Raiders of the Lost Ark: The Adaptation there a few years ago. If you really have an issue with it, take it up with them; ain’t my theater.
