Experiment Like You Mean It

Experiments in Cinema v8.53 washes over the Duke City this weekend like a cinematic fever dream. This is the eighth year for the alternative film festival (or something like it, that numbering system of theirs is pretty wacky). The multi-day festival is billed as “an annual celebration of international cinematic experimentation.”

Casting Encased

The about-to-shoot local indie horror feature Encased is looking to fill a couple of lead roles. First up is “Daisy,” a mid-20s Caucasian female with tattoos and piercings (described as a “Fairuza Balk American History X” look). Next up is “Xavier,” a mid-20s male Japanese rocker, also with tattoos and piercings (described as a “Gackt” look for you J-pop fans out there). Both roles are paid and will be covered under SAG ultra-low contracts. If you think you fit the bill, send a résumé and headshots to encased2013@gmail.com. According to the producers, SkyeView Productions, Encased will be a horror/slasher film about four college students battling an ancient Japanese demon trapped in an old video game. The film will begin production in the summer and is expected to release Halloween 2013. The film will employ approximately 35 New Mexican crew members along with 16 principal roles. In the meantime, you can scope out the film’s Facebook page.

Submit to the Experiment

The Experiments in Cinema film festival (I think the number they're up to in their oddball numbering system is v7.9) will be taking place at UNM in April 2012. This Thursday, Dec. 1, however, is the final deadline for submission. If you’re interested in being a part of Basement Films’ annual celebration of “international, cinematic experimentation,” then you need to log on to the website and submit your mind-bending film or video. Organizers have decided not to charge a late submission fee for submitting work after the original Oct. 15 deadline, so it'll still cost you just $15 to enter your work (or $10 each, if you're submitting more than one film). As always, the five-day event will include film screenings, lectures, workshops, musical performances and “thoughtful dialogue.”

Docu Discussion

Peace and Security Funders Group is sponsoring an exclusive sneak peek preview this Friday, Oct. 14, of “Peace Unveiled.” The documentary follows three courageous Afghani women—a parliamentarian, a midwife and a young activist—who organize to ensure female rights in their country. Narrated by Tilda Swinton, “Peace Unveiled” is one part of the upcoming five-part documentary series “Women, War & Peace” to be broadcast on PBS this fall. The screening will take place at La Fonda Hotel’s Santa Fe Room and will be followed by a discussion with producer/philanthropist Abigail E. Disney. This screening and discussion is free and open to the public. RSVP is required, however, so you need to contact cong@peaceandsecurity.org to secure a seat.
