We’re a bit late to the party on this one, but there’s plenty of time for folks living in or visiting the Los Angeles area to check out the Projections Film Festival, “a festival of rare and hard to see” short and feature length films screening from this past weekend until February 20 at the Roberts & Tilton gallery.
The upcoming schedule includes screenings of Spike Jonze’s short film We Were Once a Fairytale, starring Kanye West and an evil animated rat, as well as Harmony Korine’s Mac and Plak, a 20-minute flick made up of outtakes from his latest feature Trash Humpers, Miranda July’s The Amateurist, and indie rocker photographer/music video director Autumn de Wilde’s Crippled Satellite. Check out the description of de Wilde’s brand new 3-minute short (which screens the same night as July’s Amateurist, btw):
Cometae is a moon creature made of ice and dust. She’s made her home in the center of a comet hurtling through space. Her enemy is a crippled satellite. Will she reach the Moon?
A few of these are already available on the internets, but something tells me the Projections screenings will be something special. Check out the full schedule and more info here.
