Astoria Indies bills itself as the "new home of indie film in Queens," which leads me to wonder where the old home of indie film in Queens was, but no matter. This weekly screening series kicks off 2010 with B-Side fave Visioneers, the Zach Galifianakis flick that's been described as "Office Space meets 1984."
That screening is tonight! If you're in or near Queens and want to go, you can get the details at the official Visioneers host-a-screening site. There you can also find out how to host your own screening of this film or several others in the B-Side stable, including Still Bill and Last Cup: The Road to the World Series of Beer Pong. (Why yes, I do work for the distributor.)
You can also take a gander at the official Astoria Indies site and learn about the other films they'll be showing – oh hey, look at that. They're showing yet another B-Side film: Trust Us, This Is All Made Up, which showcases two of the top improv comics in the U.S.
Am I done shilling for B-Side and Astoria Indies yet? I suppose. Now back to the regularly scheduled blog.
