OFF 2009 Alums have theatrical releases

We always love to follow the progress of films and filmmakers from our fests and wanted to let you know about two OFF 09 films that are having theatrical releases currently.

"Trucker," starring Oxford's own Joey Lauren Adams, will open on Oct. 16 at the Laemmle in Los Angeles. Director James Mottern and star Michelle Monaghan will be there on Friday at the 7:20 screening for a Q&A. For more on the film and screenings, visit

Also opening is a film from our summer series, "Adventures of Power," starring Ari Gold who sent us this e-mail with some updates on its theatrical run starting tonight:

NYC Sendoff Screenings tonight!
Those of you in New York, please send a crowd to "Adventures of Power" TONIGHT at the AMC Loews Village 7 on 3rd Ave. and 11th St.. We are finishing our one-week run there and moving to California tomorrow, so let's go out with a bang as we head into the wilds of America, with the movie Time Out NY praised for its fearlessness!

LA Opening tomorrow!
We begin our week in LA tomorrow, Friday at the Laeemle. I will be doing Q/As at all the weekend screenings, along with some cast members.

Charity Party Hotness, & Metallica and more in our online auction!
Our parties in NY (with the Prigs, World War, DJ Jonathan Taubin, and The Honey Brothers) and LA (with Ozomatli, Soko, the Ethan Gold Amoeba Records Employee Last-Minute Soundtrack Band, the Good Listeners, and DJ Mearii), have raised thousands of dollars to support music education for kids. The parties were also awesome. In LA, torrential rains, torrential love. Tomorrow, as our film opens in L.A., we're launching our online auction, with drums signed by Metallica, Rush, Judas Priest, Broken Social Scene, Brian Viglioni, artwork by Shepard Fairey, and more.

Next week, Austin and Salt Lake City! For more information on screenings and the online auction, visit
