Jazzy silent’s, dead poet’s, crazy sailors…and more!

Hope you’re all enjoying the dog days of summer as much as I am! But if the heat (and smoke) are getting to you, there’s nothing like the distraction of a good movie…

Festival Mozaic is screening three silent films this Friday evening (July 28) at the Fremont Theatre, with live orchestra accompaniment. If you haven’t experienced this combo (live music and film) before, you must! Click here for more details and to buy tickets.

And if you love silent films and live music, stay tuned for some exciting news about a SLO Film Fest Fall Fundraising Event you won’t want to miss…details to be announced in early August!

The Central Coast Writer’s Conference is coming up in September and the SLO Film Fest is sponsoring the opening night, featuring the Oscar-winning screenwriter of DEAD POET’S SOCIETY, Tom Schulman and a screening of that iconic movie that also won a Best Picture Oscar in 1990! Tickets are on sale now, so click here to grab some and find out what else is happening during the jam-packed 3-day conference, happening September 28-30.

And some news about films that screened at recent SLO Film Fest’s:

The exciting sailing adventure documentary, SEA GYPSIES: The Far Side of the World, is now available on iTunes! In early Feb 2014, during the iciest year on record in the Southern Ocean, Infinity and her crew of 16 left New Zealand on an 8,000 mile pacific crossing to Patagonia, with a stop in Antarctica.This expedition was undertaken with a non-ice-reinforced gypsy boat built by hand in the 1970’s, crewed by a band of wandering miscreants, with no permits or insurance and an almost non-existent budget. Now that’s adventure! They are now raising money for an even more hair-raising plan – to sail through the most northerly part of the Northwest Passage, where no one has successfully sailed. Click here to buy SEA GYPSIES and read about their newest schemes of sailing insanity.

And congrats to San Luis Obispo resident Sky Bergman and her production team on the East Coast premiere of LIVES WELL LIVED, just last week at the Maine International Film Festival. Following that is the Canadian premiere at the Lunenburg Doc Fest in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia in late September! This engaging documentary that focuses on a number of inspiring SLO County residents, is now traveling far and wide to celebrate the secrets of wit, wisdom and age with audiences far and wide. Wishing Sky and her team continued fun and success with this wonderful film with its proud roots in SLO County.

Stay cool…see you at the movies!

SLO Film Fest Director
