http://playagainfilm.com/gallery/trailers/

 

One generation from now most people in the U.S. will have spent more time in the virtual world than in nature.

But what are we missing when we are behind screens? And how will this impact our children, our society, and eventually, our planet? This moving and humorous documentary follows six teenagers who, like the “average American child,” spend five to fifteen hours a day behind screens. PLAY AGAIN unplugs these teens and takes them on their first wilderness adventure.

 

As a new component of OPEN CINEMA’s events, the discussion will be live-streemed to OPEN CINEMA’s website on our live page

http://www.opencinema.ca/live/ and there will be a moderated Twitter chat, which can be followed by following #OCchat

 

Our website also has a brand new look, thanks to Pink Sheep Media! (www.PinkSheepMedia.ca).

 

Hope to see you at the event!

5. AROUND TOWN

 

Antimatter Film Festival

October 12 to 20, 2012  |  Victoria, BC, Canada

 

Antimatter is celebrating 15 years of subversive cinema with a new venue, more democratic price structure, and the great programming audiences have come to expect from this long-running festival. From October 12 to 20, festival-goers will be treated to performances, installations and screenings of feature-length and short films from as far away as Iran, Finland and Japan.

 

This year’s nightly screening series will take place at The Vic Theatre, a 200-plus-seat venue with a 24-foot screen, great sightlines and top-notch projection and sound. Each screening will have pay-what-you-can price structure, allowing more cinema-lovers to enjoy the diverse offerings at Antimatter. Cinephiles will find environmentalism, music, documentary, found footage, analogue techniques, collage and much more in this year’s Antimatter program, which runs the gamut from poignant to provocative.

 

In tandem with Antimatter’s screenings are two installations. Salas… (cartel series), which will be found in the lobby of The Vic Theatre, is an excerpt from Julio Orozco’s “Movie Houses of the Past, Projections in the Future,” wherein the Tijuana native used his photos of the city’s disappearing cinemas to create fictional film posters. October 13 to 27 at Deluge Contemporary Art is Methods for Composing Random Compositions, where Adán De La Garza uses non-musical objects to elicit 17 different sound performances; De La Garza will be on hand to present the video pieces and discuss his work. Also at Deluge is The Ride, a short film about Vienna’s “Prater,” an urban amusement park.

 

Antimatter is also excited to be hosting Home Movie Day on October 20, where there will be a screening of Tourist Season, a collection of vintage films of Victoria from the 1930s through the 1980s—and if you have your own Victoria home movies you’d like to share, be sure to get in touch.

 

Screenings are a $5–$8 suggested donation; installations are free. Full schedule and program guide available at locations across Greater Victoria, or online at http://www.antimatter.ws

SCREENINGS

 

Movie Monday

 

6:30 pm Monday 15 Oct 2012

Dinosaur Maker – an evening with Bill Maylone, approximately 2 hours

This is more a talk illustrated with short films and clips.

 

 

Inspired by the fantastic films of Ray Harryhausen, and with a professional career that started in Victoria in the mid-1970s, Bill Maylone ended up directing or creating animated movies and sequences for the likes of Adbusters, the National Film Board, NOVA, the CBC, and Will Vinton Studios.

 

In the days before computer animation, dinosaurs and other fantastic creatures were brought to life most effectively using the painstaking hands-on technique of stop-motion animation. He came to realize that this odd profession could actually contribute to changing the world.

Maylone, now a Mayne Island resident, will share his stories, images, movies, and models and talk about the challenges, successes, and frustrations involved in being driven by the unusual, but – fortunately – constructive obsession of making inanimate objects appear to be alive. Pg with clips of Bill’s own work and some classic Harryhausen work too. youtube video.

6:30 pm Monday 22 Oct 2012

Being Flynn, 74 min, 2012

 

 

De Niro is Flynn, a con man, passionate, self proclaimed ‘great writer’. He’s obstreperous and a serious drinker on his way to homelessness. Paul Dano is the son he left behind but has re-connected with after many years of absenteeism. He has his own issues and is drifting, heading for a job working in a shelter for homeless men. Not an easy watch, revealing of realities that lead to homelessness, insights into dysfunctional family dynamics. Based a real life memoir by son Nick Flynn. Powerful cinema experience and a great fit for MM! Both De Niro and Dano keep it real. R suggestive scenes, drug use, language. official site.

 

 

Movies are shown on a 12′ screen in the Eric Martin Pavilion in the 1900 block of Fort St. Admission by donation! Pop & popcorn at ridiculously low prices. See: http://islandnet.com/mm/
