The Schedule!

At long last it’s here! You’ve waited so long! But here it is!

As you well know, the Frederick Film Festival got over 900 submissions for this year’s festival…this led to some delays in making sure that all the films submitted got a fair shake regarding being selected.

As it turns out…no matter how you slice it…900 films is a LOT of films. Every time we thought we’d made a dent in the number…there were still HUNDREDS left. Even worse, because this was four times as many films as last year, we were turning down LOTS of films we would have loved to have accepted. LOTS.

However, fortitude prevailed and the films were selected and the schedule was formulated. We attempted to utilize every nook and cranny in the schedule to show as many films as possible. We did…there are fewer and shorter breaks between the films (always room for a short there!) so the pace of films, on Saturday especially, will be breakneck. But we wanted to make sure everything was well represented!

So, here it is…the schedule (it will be up on the main website soon…probably later today), following the schedule below is a list of all the features and short films selected. They’ll all be described individually on the main website, but we thought you might like to see the overall raw list.

Thanks again for waiting as we got all these films watched and scheduled! It was a good problem to have, but, frankly, we’ve seen enough film to hold us…at least until we show them at the festival!

The 2014 Frederick Film Festival is Coming!

Welcome!

This is the Inaugural Post for the 2014 Frederick Film Festival’s blog, Inside the F3.

Copy of logo mockup_03To say that we are neck deep in the logistics for the fest would be to engage in gross understatement. All aspects of the F3 are underway and all moving, it seems, at the same time in the same space!

All your favorite aspects of the five previous festivals are underway…the F3 Soundtrack events, the Opening Night Afterparty, the Kickoff Event, the guests, and even some things we’re trying out new this year.

We’ve already announced a few of the early selection at www.TheF3.com, but tomorrow we’ll start announcing some of the F3 Soundtrack performances.

As you likely know, at the F3, music is as important as the films. This is something we have covered in this blog before. This post covered the history of the F3 Sountrack, and this post covered the musical acts for 2013.

Have a look at some of the top notch musical entertainment we’ve had over the last few years and get yourself ready for what’s coming this year! The announcements…and other film announcements…are coming soon!

Friday Night Afterparty @ Brewer’s Alley

AfterParty

One of the primary events that the F3 committee looks forward to each year is the Opening Night AfterParty. This event is usually, as the name suggests, opening night. It’s upstairs at Brewer’s Alley. And it’s a great event with beverages, food, music, and milling about. This year, the great Hard Swimmin’ Fish will be providing the musical entertainment…and if you’ve ever seen them, you know how they make a great party even greater.

The committee usually likes it because it means the most anticipated and the most dreaded day of the festival…OPENING DAY…is over. Chances are everyone survived. Any hurdles were successfully overcome. All the filmmakers made it ok (the ones who had films that screened on Friday and those that have films the rest of the weekend). And the committee members’ heart rates, blood pressures, and respiratory patterns have returned (more or less) to normal.

The reward for making it through this most stressful of festival days is a great, casual event overflowing with not only Brewer’s Alley food and drink, but audience members, committee members, and filmmakers. All are together in the two rooms rubbing elbows, mingling, schmoozing, and other innocuous activities that sound vaguely euphemistic.

Into the mix, overlain like a John Williams score, is a roomful of live, upbeat music.

It’s more than any unpaid committee-member could legitimately wish for.

Folks often ask, “Why is tonight such a relief? Don’t you have the rest of the festival to worry about?”

The very short and sweet answer to that is “no.” Once it starts, the rest of the festival is going to happen no matter what. Once that machinery is in place and started, the clock ticks on it’s own…it may need some help here or there, but if we’ve wound the watch, it’s keeping time. It’s that first setting into motion thing we all fret and bother about.

So seeing everyone together at the end of that first night…upstairs at Brewer’s Alley…we get to ask attendees how it seemed to go. We get to actually talk with filmmakers about real stuff, and not about screening logistics. We get to speak normally to other committee members that we’ve been barking at for the last half year. We get to discuss movies…which was kind of what brought us all together to do a film festival in the first place.

That Opening Night Afterparty could only be better if all the attendees were there. If you have a Opening Day or Weekend pass to the F3, that’s the only ticket you need. Head down to Brewer’s Alley after the last show, Led Zeppelin Played Here, on Friday night, June 28th, go upstairs, flash your pass, and enjoy.

Look for the most relaxed people there, and then come up and say hello to us.

The Best Entertainment Deal in Frederick History: The F3 Weekend Pass

passes

Ok…I’m going to save you some time reading this post and just say NOW that if you don’t have your F3 Weekend Pass, go HERE and get it now. Then you don’t need to read any further. If you need further convincing…or just like to read…carry on.

Ok…what is self-promotion without a healthy helping of hyperbole? It’s just in the nature of proclaiming how great your events are.

EXCEPT in this case. We here at the F3 honestly believe that pound-for-pound, you will NOT find a better entertainment value in Frederick…EVER…than the Frederick Film Festival Weekend Pass.

Let me repeat that: EVER

We’re not the type of folk who just toss something like that out there without anything to back it up. So, we’re going to take a little bit of time to go over what exactly the F3 Weekend pass gets YOU, the intelligent, price-savvy, F3 Weekend Pass purchaser.

1. F3 Eve

new-vhs2-one-sheetWe don’t always have an F3 Eve at the Frederick Film Festival. Only when it’s justified. It’s generally designed to be something of a treat for folks in town early for the festival or folks who live in town. Previous years’ F3 Eve events have included a concert by, and documentary about, Frederick’s own The Skeptics back in 2010 or a screening of the cult favorite Heavy Metal Parking Lot and concert afterwards in 2011. It’s a fun little bonus event that takes place just before all the REAL work begins for the festival.

This year, we have a special F3 Eve event on Thursday night, June 27. A pre-theatrical screening of the anthology horror film V/H/S/2 hosted by one of the film’s directors, Frederick’s own Eduardo Sanchez. Other cast and crew members will also be on hand for some q&a afterward and it promises to be a great night. Now…the difference between this F3 Eve and previous F3 Eves is that we are limited by the film’s distributor to only 200 seats. That’s it. 200. Weekend pass holders must call the box office in advance and request their free ticket. Anyone not purchasing a Weekend Pass (though, really, why would you not?) can still get a ticket while they last for $10.

2. Friday Movies/Opening Night/Afterparty

Ok, the cost of the F3 Weekend Pass SHOULD just cover Friday. Here’s why: The F3 Weekend pass gets you access all day on Friday, June 28 starting at 2pm. Afternoon films include guests as well, includledzeppelin-poster-for-Frederickwo-texting John Putch who will be on hand to answer questions about his film Route 30, Too!

Then there are the opening night festivities, with guests from the movie Led Zeppelin Played Here including director Jeff Krulik!

THEN, after all THAT, there’s the F3 Opening Night Afterparty upstairs imageat Brewer’s Alley. Mix with filmmakers, film fans, cast, crew, eat some great food, have some great beverages, all to the beat of the music from Hard Swimmin’ Fish!

3. Saturday Films/Klezmatics Concert

FirstFourFeaturesOk, the gold mine day. Saturday. Scads of films and filmmakers in two different venues. We’ve got things starting at 10am at the Weinberg and the Delaplaine. klez-posterMultiple guests at both locations. US premieres!

Then, that evening, we screen the documentary The Klezmatics: On Holy Ground (with director Erik Anjou in attendance) followed by a concert by the Klezmatics themselves. The Grammy-winning act, live on the F3 stage at the Weinberg.

klezmatics20091That’s like 20 hours of entertainment over two venues, a world-class concert, and a bunch of US premiere movies…again, worth MUCH more than the F3 Weekend Pass should be allowed to cost.

4. Sunday films/Americana music with Hugh & Zane Campbell

postcard_new_glorious_deserter_april_2012After all the excitement of Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night, we’re toning it down a bit for Sunday. All films and events Sunday will be in the intimate confines of the Pavilion at the Delaplaine Visual Arts Education Center. media_httpwwwamerican_zEsoz.jpg.scaled600

Films on Sunday include not only US Premieres, but also a documentary entitled New River: A Family Musical History Tour and tells the story of Americana music families the Brooks and the Campbells. Filmmaker Tom Sims will be on hand for this screening and, following the film, yet ANOTHER musical event HughZaneCampbellwhen the latest in the long line of musicians in these family, Hugh and Zane Campbell, will perform and talk about their family and their music.

A great way to wrap up a great festival.

So, to recap, the 2013 F3 Weekend Pass gets you access to:

  • F3 Eve on Thursday Night
  • Friday Afternoon films and guests
  • Friday Opening Night feature and guests
  • Friday Opening Night AFTERPARTY
  • Saturday films starting at 10am at both the Delaplaine and the Weinberg
  • Saturday night special film event with director Erik Anjou
  • Saturday night concert with the Grammy-winning KLEZMATICS
  • Sunday films all day
  • Sunday special film screening of New River with Tom Sims
  • Sunday afternoon performance of Hugh and Zane Campbell

FOUR days of entertainment, 3 musical acts, an afterparty with food and drink, 56 films, and the opportunity to meet scads of guests.

ALL THAT FOR ONLY $3000!!

NO…wait…I left something out…all for only $30.00!!

I know, right? The second price seems crazier than the first! That’s what we meant by the BEST ENTERTAINMENT DEAL IN FREDERICK HISTORY. No hype! We weren’t just whistling Dixie on that, we meant it! If you can find anything that even comes close to that, you need to drop us a line and tell us what it is and we’ll go there some other weekend because the weekend of the 28th-30th we’re at the Frederick Film Festival…and if you’re not…you’re just missing it.

TixStripSeriously…buy your tickets…some things are going to fill up…you don’t want to be that guy do you? For the rest of your life, you’ll be the person who didn’t get F3 Weekend Passes in 2013. I wouldn’t wish that on anyone.

Metalic logoSo go HERE and get your tickets NOW. Or call the Weinberg box office at 301.600.2828 and order by phone. OR, drop by there and get them in person sometime before the fest starts. You’ll be glad you did.

The Klezmatics (Revisited)

klezslide

Back in March we did a blog post about the Klezmatics at the F3…since it’s been so long, we thought it could use some revisiting:

The Frederick Film Festival (F3) and the Weinberg Center for the Arts proudly present the Grammy Award-winning The Klezmatics on Saturday, June 29 at 9pm on the Weinberg Center stage. The concert follows the screening of the documentary feature film, The Klezmatics: On Holy Ground, directed by Erik Greenberg Anjou–who will be in attendance at this event.

The KlezmaticsClarisse Smith CenterUniversity of MDCollege Park MD$25 / Concert Only Ticket-Purchase Ticket Here

$20 / One-day Film Pass (concert ticket included)-Purchase Ticket Here

 

 

“The Klezmatics aren’t just the best band in the klezmer vanguard; on a good night, they can rank among the greatest bands on the planet”  

                                                                                                                     –Time Out New York

The evening will be a big one for the Frederick Film Festival community. A great expression of the F3’s belief that great film and great music work together the same way a soundtrack and a film do—each adding a greater dimension to the other.

About The Klezmatics 

Together since 1986, The Klezmatics have embraced, stretched, reworked and redefined the type of Eastern European Jewish music for which they were named. Their music is rooted in, but does not strictly represent the traditional klezmer genre. It is a comfortable hybrid that appeals equally to those with no previous exposure to the music, and those already familiar with it. On their Grammy Award-winning 2006 album Wonder Wheel, The Klezmatics set a dozen previously unsung Woody Guthrie lyrics to music.

Over the years, The Klezmatics have collaborated with such brilliant artists as violinist Itzhak Perlman, singer Arlo Guthrie, poet Alan Ginsberg, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Tony Kushner and Israeli vocal icon Chava Alberstein. They have appeared on TV programs as diverse as Late Night with David Letterman and Sex and the City, and have guested on numerous radio programs including the BBC’s John Peel Show and NPR’s A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor.

About the Documentary klez-poster

The concert will be preceded by a showing of the film The Klezmatics: On Holy Ground introduced by director Erik Anjou who will be available for questions afterwards. Anjou spent more than four years researching, traveling, fundraising, filming, interviewing, editing and generally becoming an extension of the band. His film is a fascinating portrait of a fascinating group of musicians.

Frederick Film Fest Soundtrack – 2013

422317_451297488244209_1600689666_nWith just a couple of days left before the first real F3 2013 Soundtrack performance at the Monocacy Brewing Company on Saturday, June 15 during the F3 Kickoff Event, we thought we’d take this opportunity to go over, once again, the musical performances we’ll be having this year.

As noted in a previous post on this blog, music has long been an important component to  the F3. Indeed, the organizers feel that, like the musical soundtrack is an integral part of almost any film, the musical performances we undertake here are similarly integral. Or, put a little less pretentiously…we like music.

Ted_StudioB_MediumThis year has been no exception to our programming music. As noted before, and pretty much all week if you’ve been reading the blog/FB page/or following us on Twitter, we’ve started off the whole festival season with a Soundtrack Kickoff party at the Monocacy Brewing Company. This event has traditionally been our big music event in previous years and this year is certainly no different with the inclusion this time of regional favorite Ted Garber.

This event takes place on June 15, from 4pm to 8pm, and includes not only Ted’s music, but some short films, great food from Brewer’s Alley, and MBC’s own beer. All included in your ticket price. Tickets on sale at: www.F3Tix.com.

But then we get to the festival weekend proper. June 28-30!

HSF_Mic_LogoOur next musical act shows up at our Opening Night Afterparty at Brewer’s Alley on Friday, June 28. After a music-themed Opening Night film (the documentary Led Zeppelin Played Here) we all head right up the street to the upper floor of Brewer’s Alley for an afterparty that provides not only the opportunity to meet and talk with filmmakers and other film professionals surrounded by Brewer’s Alley food and drink, but also the opportunity to hear the musical stylings of Hard Swimmin’ Fish as they will be the musical entertainment for the evening.

klezmatics20091Saturday, June 29 at the Frederick Film Festival is another big music day with the evening closing not only with a documentary about the Gramming-winning band, but a live performance from the Kelzmatics themselves! The evening will be a big one for the Frederick Film Festival community as having the chance to play host to such a nationally renown act like the Klezmatics is a huge deal for us. Your festival pass gets you into the event (along with all the films that day) so if you already know how great they are, you can catch a ton of great films before the show. If you DON’T know how great they are, you get the concert as a bonus after catching a ton of great films before the show! It’s a win-win!

HughZaneCampbellThe last act…the final reel if you will…of the 2013 Frederick Film Festival will be another movie/music combination on Sunday, June 30. The film, New River: A Family Musical History Tour, tells the storied history of the Campbell and Brooks families, true trailblazers in the world of early 20th century Americana music and a family that includes such luminaries as Ola Belle Reed and Guy Brooks of The Red Fox Chasers. The film is followed by a concert from Hugh and Zane Campbell, Ola Belle’s nephews and Americana artists in their own right. It will be fine Sunday afternoon’s worth of great roots music.

And what’s the kicker about these concerts? What’s the kicker about the whole festival? Well, aside from the pre-event on June 15, ANYTHING that goes on during the actual festival weekend…the F3 Eve event on Thursday…the films and Afterparty on Friday…the films and Klezmatics concert on Saturday…and the films and Americana concert on Sunday…ALL of those events can be covered with a single $30 pass…the F3 2013 Weekend Pass encompasses all four days of quality entertainment.

There may be a better entertainment deal in Frederick…this year…but I doubt it. I really…seriously…doubt it.

F3 Eve: V/H/S/2 with Ed Sanchez! Special Limited Seating Event! June 27

F3EveAnd, as if to pull out one more treat for everyone thinking of giving up their valuable time to head out to the Frederick Film Festival from June 28-30, we’ve got a reason to show up a day early. Several times during previous festivals we’ve endeavored to bring something a little different…a little special…to the festival…well….to the PRE-Festival. These are usually things designed for the community. Something to come and enjoy before the rest of the festival folk show up for opening day. A little something we like to call…

F3 EVE!

And this year…it’s a killer.

new-vhs2-one-sheetThe F3 is proud to bring the horror anthology film V/H/S/2  to the Weinberg Center as part of the Frederick Film Festival’s F3 Eve event. The film, which will be released in theaters on July 12, 2013, features the work not only of Frederick’s own Eduardo Sánchez (Blair Witch Project), but also Gareth Evans (The Raid: Redemption), Jason Eisener (Hobo with a Shotgun), Gregg Hale (Producer: Blair Witch Project), Adam Wingard (You’re Next), Simon Barrett (The ABCs of Death), and Timo Tjahjanto (Killers).

Through a special arrangement with the film company, we have been allowed to present this pre-theatrical release screening at the Weinberg Center…BUT…only to 200 people. 200…that’s it. If you’re the 201st person in line…I’m sorry…no horror for you. We are really stressing this because our previous limitations have all been based on the size of the space…this one is hard and fast. 200. So when we announce that tickets are on sale, you should get them quickly…

Eduardo+Sanchez+bigfoot+directorTo add a little extra to the event, Eduardo Sanchez has agreed to come by and intro the film and do a little Q&A after the film. Ed has a pretty tight shooting schedule in June, but is taking the time out to do this (as well as judge our High School Competition on Saturday, June 29) in support of this film.

Other members of the cast and crew are coming, however, details have not been finalized on that yet. We will make the announcements regarding those guests as we get closer to the event.
