KT: This Week in WWAM World

Posted: July 18, 2011 in In Theatres, KT Personal

With the Indianapolis International Film Festival this week, we will be dedicating our time and resources to getting the most out of it, and therefore will not be releasing a podcast this week.  Steve & Jenn, your listener suggestion will be posted in approximately two weeks. The next podcast being released early next week, will focus on our time and opinions of our time at the Festival.
Just a few things of note:
• JC and I will be reviewing movies all week on the blog. Please check often for posts!
• I didn’t mention one of my favorite aspects of “Annabelle & Bear” — the soundtrack. It is absolutely fantastic, and music plays an integral role in the film. I’ve ordered the soundtrack off of the official Annabelle & Bear website (http://www.annabelleandbear.com) and cannot wait to love it to death.
• There is a movie that will screen on Saturday, July 23rd at 7:30 p.m. called “These Amazing Shadows.” Here is the synopsis, from the IIFF website: From Dorothy’s entrance into Oz to the pizza delivery at Ridgemont High, cinematic moments take on iconic levels of meaning in a film lover’s life. As the government-appointed protector of our cinematic legacy, the National Film Registry selects culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant works for preservation in the Library of Congress. From award-winning features to music videos, experimental films to home movies, each registry selection reflects a truth of its time or a standout artistic vision. Through interviews with registry board members, archivists, and notable filmmakers like John Singleton and John Waters, directors Paul Mariano and Kurt Norton demonstrate the way film documents artistic and societal milestones. Guided by a true cinephile’s love of the medium and a treasure trove of archival footage, These Amazing Shadows molds a cultural history from pieces of film, offering a microcosm of the work of the National Film Registry and making a powerful case for film preservation.

I’m really looking forward to this movie and hope to see the Toby packed for this screening!
• There is a Secret Screening on Friday, July 22nd, at the IMA for their “Summer Nights” series. They’re not releasing what movie will be screened… I don’t know about you, but I’m excited about what it could be! Check out the rest of the IMA “Summer Nights” schedule at http://www.imamuseum.org/programs/summer-nights.
That’s all for now. See you at the movies!
