INDIE INCUBATOR XI- A Festival of Chicago’s Best Short Films (11/30/10)

Nov ’10
30
8:00 PM

Short films will fill the 10 foot screen and all the plasmas in the popular night spot, The Original Mother’s, for the eleventh incarnation of Indie Incubator Film Fest on Tuesday, November 30, 2010. There isn’t a bad seat in the house, and management even breaks out the couches and free popcorn, too. These shorts are anywhere from 30 seconds to 20 minutes in length, and genres run the gamut from comedy to horror, with everything in between. It is never boring, with energetic hosts and great films, the crowd is constantly entertained.

Now in its fifth year, Indie Incubator has gained credibility, momentum and a distinct voice in the Chicago area independent film scene. The fest has prided itself as the best alternate venue outside of the traditional festival circuit for local filmmakers work to get shown and get noticed. They have yet to charge a single film maker ANY submission fee! “Submission fees are a racket,” says Matt Kubinski, creator of the fest. “Why should independent filmmakers be charged just to submit their film for the possibility of being shown at these fests? Don’t films already cost enough to make?” › Continue reading

Metro Presents 1st Chicago Screening of Nine Inch Nails Concert Film 2/25

Feb ’10
25
8:00 PM

Thursday, February 25, Metro and ThisOneIsOnUs.org present the first Chicago area screening of the new fan-created Nine Inch Nails concern film “Another Version Of The Truth”. The screening will be free to all those 18 & over, with limited VIP tables available for purchase.  VIP table proceeds will benefit UNICEF’s Haiti Relief Fund.

The film is a unique project entirely created, produced and brought to the public by fans of the band, with the encouragement of the band.  In 2008, Nine Inch Nails released The Slip for free on their website, as a gift to their fans.  As Trent Reznor put it at the time, “This one’s on me”.  Later that year, the band allowed dozens of fans to video and record several shows on the tour that year, and then unofficially released many hours of video footage to the fans.  The community of Nine Inch Nails fans – editors, designers, web programmers and others – then worked together to create the three disc DVD entitled “Another Version Of The Truth”.  The project will be released as three separate digital files, the final one on February 25, to be followed by a physical DVD release coming soon.

This is the first opportunity for Nine Inch Nails fans to see the entire three disc DVD live in Chicago at Metro on February 25.  There will also be DJ sets by Darkwave Disco. This event is free and open to the public. It is an 18 & over event and starts at 9pm.  A limited amount of VIP tables benefitting UNICEF’s Haiti Relief Fund are available for purchase.  The cost is $100, which includes admission, seating for four people, one drink per person, and one DVD of the film.
