45635: An Independent Spirit and SxSW winner

March 12, 2010

I’m really looking forward to 45365, a new documentary billed as “perhaps the first rural symphony.”

Directors Bill & Turner Ross just won the Chaz and Roger Ebert Truer than Fiction Award at the Independent Spirit Awards, and the film was earlier been lauded with the Grand Jury Prize at the 2009 South by Southwest Festival.

Seattle PostGlobe says it “captures small town American life in striking cinema verité style that peels away the layers…to reveal a deeper shared experience. Gorgeous.”

(It’s also got one of the nicest posters we’ve seen yet this year!)

Joe Swanberg’s One Shot

March 12, 2009

On the eve of the SXSW premiere of Joe Swanberg‘s latest film ALEXANDER THE LAST, we thought it would be a good time to roll out Swanberg’s one shot film, shot while he was attending our Local Sightings Film Festival as a juror. Local cinematographer extraordinaire Ben Kasulke (HUMPDAY, NIGHTS AND WEEKENDS, IMMACULATE CONCEPTION OF LITTLE DIZZLE) does the honors on camera. And that’s Lynn Shelton (HUMPDAY) on sign language in the background.

View our previous one-shots by Andrew Bujalski and Aaron Katz here. Buy Todd Rohal’s THE GUATEMALAN HANDHAKE 2 disc special DVD to see another starring Linas Phillips and a chicken named Star Wars.

It’s super Tuesday, I know…. but there’s till room for film news. Today SXSW released its slate of films and Seattle filmmaker Lynn Shelton‘s latest  MY EFFORTLESS BRILLIANCE is among those films in competition. We screened part of the film back in October as part of Local Sightings, and we’re extremely excited to see how it fares with the crowd down in Austin. Congrats Lynn!
