I realize this is probably unnecessary since as you all have already likely signed up for the Tribeca email newsletter, but Ithought I'd mention a couple things just in case it got forwarded into that nasty Junk Mail folder of yours.
First, Follow My Voice: With the Music of Hedwig was one of my favorite documentaries we showed in 2006. I had the honor and privilege to write the film note that appeared in the catalog and still lives on the web site. The fact that the film synthesizes so well with the themes from John Cameron Mitchell's Hedwig and the Angry Inch adds to some truly moving stories of inspirational teenagers and a tremendous soundtrack that had me clicking "Buy now" at iTunes immediately after finishing the DVD. Anyway, that's just a long preamble to the fact that Follow My Voice comes out on DVD on Tuesday. We have an interview with the film's director Katherine Linton up on the site, and we're giving away five free copies of the disc as well in the Tribeca SWAG Bag.
Also, if you have yet to go see The Devil Came on Horseback or This Is England at IFC Center, printing out the SWAG Bag page will get you a free popcorn when you do the right thing, i.e., go see the damn movies already!
Finally, TFF Artistic Director Peter Scarlet took a few minutes to sit down and say some words about Ingmar Bergman and Michelangelo Antonioni. The video is opsted here, and in just two-and-a-half minutes, Peter eloquently explains why the both of these men were (and still are) so important and vital to the ever-evolving world of cinema.
