We don’t know where Summer went, but it doesn’t matter because we love Autumn here in MN. Not just for that crisp, cool weather and the chance to break out our Fall fashion — we’re mainly excited to bring you the 12th annual Sound Unseen Film + Music Festival on October 12th-16th.
There are some exciting new developments for us, one being our new partnership with the beautiful Ritz Theater located in the vibrant arts district of Northeast Minneapolis. As a venue and rehearsal space, they are also host to numerous local arts organizations and artists. Needless to say, we are thrilled and feel privileged to be one of those organizations that will call The Ritz “home” this Fall.
We are happy to report that we’ll be continuing our screenings at the Trylon Microcinema, a theater that won City Pages 2011 “Best Movie Theater”. Our festival this year will kick off via our monthly screening series (that has now moved to the 2nd Wednesday of the month) on Weds. Oct. 12th with a VERY special screening of SID & NANCY. What’s so special about it? This is a brand new 35mm print in honor of the film’s 25th Anniversary! Can you believe it’s been that long already? We can’t!
In addition, we have a lot of other great films-on-music and special live musical performances in the works including films about Jay Reatard, jazz musician Jason Moran, Bob Forrest (Thelonious Monster), Hole drummer Patty Schemel and more! Please stay tuned as we continue updating our website with our confirmed programming, but in the meantime find us on FACEBOOK!
See you soon!
