SAN FRANCISCO, September 10, 2009 – The Disposable Film Festival announced additional information today about its second annual return to New York City, NY.
On September 22, 2009 at 8:00 PM Eastern Time, the DFF will return to New York’s Anthology Film Archives for a program it calls the DFFNYC. The evening will begin with a selection from the DFF’s 2009 program, showcasing selected works from New York filmmakers Fritz Donnelly and Paul Lovelace. In addition, it will unveil Red Bucket Films’ second full length feature disposable film, Buttons Vol 2. The cost is $10 at the door.
The DFF has gained both national and international recognition of late. This year the DFF welcomed 500 entries from 30 countries for the 2010 program, cementing it in pop culture around the world. The deadline for submissions was recently extended to October 1, 2009, due to “overwhelming requests,” said co-creators Carlton Evans and Eric Slatkin. In July of 2009, it was selected by MovieMaker Magazine as one of the country’s 25 Coolest Film Festivals.
About The Disposable Film Festival
Selected by MovieMaker Magazine as one the country’s “coolest film festivals,” The Disposable Film Festival was created in 2007 to celebrate the artistic potential of disposable video: short films made on non-professional devices such as one-time use video cameras, cell phones, point and shoot cameras, webcams, computer screen capture software, and other readily available video capture devices. With people everywhere posting videos online, we felt the time was right to draw attention to the creative potential of this new mode of filmmaking. Far beyond its initial roles for video blogging and documentation, the DFF offers a forum to display how disposable media can be used for creative purposes. The DFF hosts screenings, competitions, and other events to showcase the best work within the disposable genre.
