We just wanted to take a moment here to again thank all the filmmakers and everyone for coming out on Sunday to make Shooting Wall's first film festival a great success! I think this shows that there are people who are hungry for more adventurous cinema than what they are being given by Hollywood, the Ritz, and other local film festivals. Shooting Wall is committed to continuing on this path towards making the most progressive and advanced cinema, while keeping everything as free and accessible for audiences and filmmakers as possible. We really hope we can do something like this again. And a big special thanks to Eric and PhilaMOCA.
Everyone should stay tuned this summer for lots of news and announcements from Shooting Wall. We will be hard at work on a new issue for the fall, which is going unleash upon the film world our new ideas for a new cinema. This issue will be our best yet, so stay tuned. We also hope to reveal some new programs for the fall and continue to expose Philadelphia to the best in truly independent cinema (not IFC, Sundance, or SXSW "indie" film but true independent cinema). We have some exciting developments for the future.
Over the next few weeks we will also be posting several of the festival films on our VIMEO page in case you missed them or just want to rewatch something. Right now, we have two posted: Jon Seidman's Glimpse and Joshua Martin's Struggles in Opposition. Be sure to check back for more films soon.
