Everything Is Festival IV: The Dreamquest

 

Co-presented by Everything Is Terrible!. Additional support by Cinespia, FYF Fest, Flamingoshoe, VHX, LA Weekly, Amoeba Music & The Standard Hollywood.

 

 

Lie back, close your eyes and enter a world of half-sleeping/half-dreaming — a world of uncanny valleys and video streams, a world of Harmon towns and states of anarchy, all surrounded by mountains of VHS. That’s right, Everything is Festival – if not the world’s greatest, then at least the world’s most completely indefinable festival of fun — is back, and we’re taking you on a Dreamquest. Along with our co-curators Everything is Terrible!, we’ve embarked on our annual mission to find the greatest gonzo found footage, the most accidental movie masterpieces, the weirdest alternative comedy experiments and the awesome art/video installations that exist in any dimension.

 

Throughout the fest, the Cinefamily back patio will also contain a tiny World’s Fair — or as we call it, “IT’S A SMALL WORLD’S FAIR”, with art, video, food and drink. Art gallery Flamingoshoe will curate a pop-up International Snack Shack of Exotic Treats from around the globe, with stuff like Watermelon Oreos and Candy Cane Pringles. You are dreaming, yes.

 

And upstairs, to tie in with our Most Outrageous Video Games show, will be an “Island of Misfit Video Games” exhibit, in which one can play the weirdest and worst games of all time, and try out forgotten game systems gone astray . At the very heart of this arcane arcade of megabit misfires will be a completely original exhibit: THE TERRIBLE MACHINE. This, the world’s first found-footage VJing game, will stand proud in the center of the room, ready to rock your socks and boom your brains.

 

How do you attend the Fest? You buy tickets. You can also make a donation to Cinefamily, and get a membership — ‘cause our members go to virtually all these shows FREE.

 

Also, for this year’s Fest, we’re beta-testing a new “Save-A-Couch-Seat” option through our advance ticketing. For an extra fee, separate from the regular ticket price (or the free member ticket!), we’ll set aside your couch seating to any specific Festival show. If you know you’ll be arriving at a little later than showtime — or if you want to take your date to dinner and not wait in line — here’s your chance to just roll on in and get a great seat.

EIF: Final Cut: Ladies And Gentlemen (encore!)

A found footage shot heard around the world!
finalcut_website
8/19/2013 - 10:30PM

A giddy found-footage shot heard ‘round the world! For years, we’ve been waiting for an intrepid soul to craft an entirely narrative feature comprised of images and sounds from other feature films — and Final Cut – Ladies And Gentlemen, the culmination of three years’ worth of editing by visionary Hungarian director György Pàlfi (Taxidermia), is nothing short of astonishing. With the totality of the moviegoing experience as its subject, Final Cut juggles clips from over 450 of the greatest films of all time, and bends deep reserves of movie tricks, tropes and triumphs into a single flowing arc. Iconic characters are raised through childhood, fall in love, go to war, marry — and as we jump from Marilyn Monroe to Jackie Chan, from Ozu to Lynch, from the Twenties to the Millenium and back again, we bask in the unity of our shared mythos. Whether you take it in as either an immersive art piece or the all-time highlight reel of your dreams, Final Cut taps directly into the cinematic subconscious with a sensitivity sure to captivate casual movie buffs and hardcore cineastes in equal measure.
Dir. György Pálfi, 2012, digital presentation, 84 min.

EIF & DOUG BENSON'S MOVIE INTERRUPTION: Now You See Me

A special festival installment!

The next installment of Doug Benson’s Movie Interruption, where Doug and his friends (who, in the past, have included everyone from Brian Posehn to Sarah Silverman and Zach Galifianakis) chill on the front row couches, mics in hand, and say whatever hilarious thing pops into their heads while a movie of their choosing unfolds on the screen. Doug & Co. prestidigitate their way through the magical action thriller Now You See Me!

EIF: The Phynx (hosted by Patton Oswalt)

A cameo porn holocaust!
phynx_website
8/18/2013 - 10PM

CO-PRESENTED BY WARNER ARCHIVE

Patton Oswalt’s long been the kind of smart, passionate filmic crate-digger we love to hang with — and he’s back in our house to present the first L.A. 35mm screening in ten years of The Phynx: a most curious curio from the death throes of old-school Hollywood, back when it was desperately clutching for the post-Easy Rider youth market. Pop quiz: name the movie that stars Richard Pryor, Colonel Sanders and Busby Berkeley all in the same 90 minutes? This bubblegum pop parody/sub-Get Smart Albanian spy caper/world’s record attempt for most cameos in a single flick very quickly came and went, with no home video release on any format until just a few months ago. The Phynx is not just an avalanche of cameo porn — it’s a cameo porno holocaust, with crusty stars of yesteryear crammed in next to Baby Boomer hepcats, and, yes, even the real-life KFC maven. Weirder than it has any right to be, and with a sick sense of lysergic humor that only other Hollywood bombs like Skidoo could quasi-pull off, The Phynx is a theatrical experience Seventies civilians were simply unprepared for (and we’re not too sure we’re yet prepared for it today either!)
Dir. Lee H. Katzin, 1970, 35mm, 81 min.

People! The Found Footage Battle Royale calls for you! We’ve got a lot of Terribles and Terribl-ettes coming in from all across the country for this, so now is the perfect time to show off by taking down your peers! Think your collection of YouTube videos and VHS tapes is the best in the biz? Then prove it, creep! This tumultuous tourney of viral video insanity dares you to bring your A-game, and go head-to-head with your own kind! We want to see the weird, funny and insane clips that you’ve always wanted to show publicly — think of it like the WWF, but with videos instead of all that greasy groping stuff. You’’ll be judged by the audience applause-o-meter, so make sure your stuff is entertaining as a monster truck rally! Be forewarned: this could, and should, get ugly. Here’s how it works:

* Anyone is welcome to enter, but you must be there at the show in person for your entries to count.

* Submissions can vary from an unseen YouTube clip to a fully edited piece. We obviously want creativity, but, really, this is about showing off gems. Whatever the clip may be, just think to yourself “Will this go over well with an audience of screaming maniacs?”

* Each contestant must have a total of SIX CLIPS ready to show, and sent to us by Saturday, AUGUST 11TH.

* Once we take a took at everyone’s submissions, SIXTEEN lucky contestants will be chosen.

* Clips cannot be longer than 2 MINUTES MAX! Anything longer will be cut short.

* Submissions can be sent to us a number of ways: 1) DVDs can be sent to The Cinefamily via snail mail (send to: The Cinefamily, ATTN: Found Footage Battle Royale, 611 N. Fairfax Avenue, Los Angeles, CA, 90036); or, 2) entries can be emailed to us at whatsupeit@gmail.com. We can take many formats, but since this stuff is going to be projected on the big screen, think “the bigger the quality, the better.”

* Costumes, character backgrounds, etc. are encouraged for in-person combat on the night of the show.

* Taunting and mocking of other contestants is also appreciated — as long as it’s non-violent and/or creepy.

* The winner will receive the only thing that matters — RESPECT.

Think your collection of YouTube videos and VHS tapes is the best in the biz? Then prove it, creep! This tumultuous tourney of viral video insanity dares you to bring your A-game, and go head-to-head with your own kind!

EIF: Show & Tell w/ Maria Bamford

From thift store finds to late-night TiVo!
mariabamford_website
8/18/2013 - 5:30PM

Show & Tell: the Cinefamily series inviting artists, filmmakers, musicians and other cultural heroes to divulge their deepest, darkest media obsessions by opening their closets, digging through their attic and plundering their garages to curate an evening of whatever they want to share! From thrift store finds to late-night Tivo, from foreign film bootlegs to home movies, from the popular to the perverse — all media is presented live by the honored guests, as they take us on a personal tour of the material that has inspired them, delighted them, or just plain freaked them out.

We can’t tell you how tickled we are to have Maria Bamford in the Show & Tell driver’s seat, for her singular brand of stand-up comedy — an always-personal and deeply resonant giggle-laden experience — makes her just the kind of kin we’d love to rummage through the closets of, in order to dig up her curios, memories and influences. Join us for a Q+A with Maria moderated by the one and only Wayne Federman!

CO-PRESENTED BY STARBURNS INDUSTRIES

What could be more wholesome than spending your Sunday in Moralton with Orel Puppington, Clay, Bloberta, Rev. Putty and the rest of your favorite Moral Orel characters? Moral Orel, the mid-Aughts masterpiece from Dino Stamatopoulos (creator of Mary Shelley’s Frankenhole and the new ADHD show High School USA!) — remains one of the Golden Age of Televised Animation’s crowning achievements, due to both its sharply brilliant satire and its beautiful stop-motion work. Don’t miss Dino, along with the reunited cast of Moral Orel as they perform table reads of two never-before-produced episodes in front of your eyes and ears, complete with a puppet show using the actual stop-motion figures! Special live guests include cast members Carolyn Lawrence, Scott Adsit, Britta Philips, K.K. Dodds, William Salyers, Jay Johnston, Joe Unger, and Q&A moderator Nick Wiedenfeld (ADHD).

Plus, as an added treat, Dino will reach into his video vault and take you back in time to his college years in Chicago, when he and his good friend Andy Dick teamed up to create a series of comedy sketches — shown here in all their glorious VHS beauty!

They say creativity often works best under strict limitations — and the meteoric output of Vine’s thousands of micro-auteurs might be the best 21st century example we’ve yet seen. In the first L.A. celebration of this new six-second medium, we’ll explore Vine’s best-of-the-best (and strangest-of-the-strange) with special live guests Steve Agee, Adam Goldberg, James Urbaniak, Marlo Meekins and Ian Padgham! But that’s not all: we also want to showcase the greatest six-second films that YOU have to offer! Send us your most brilliant works of Vine genius, and an esteemed panel of judges will choose the best to be screened at the film fest!

EIF: Neil Breen's "Fateful Findings" (L.A. premiere, Neil Breen in person!)

Catch Breen fever with us!
fatefulfindings_website
8/17/2013 - MIDNITE

CO-PRESENTED BY BADASS DIGEST.

One film above all others rocked last year’s edition of the annual Austin, TX ritual Butt-Numb-A-Thon — and to everyone’s surprise, it was neither mega-budget superhero fodder, nor routine genre exercise. We’re talking about the third out-of-left-field film from writer/producer/director/star Neil Breen, whose quixotic cinematic journey Cinefamily’s been charting with active interest since his first unique foray. Outside the confines of the Hollywood dream factory, and outside the norms of traditional storytelling, Breen’s growing body of work (Double Down, I Am Here….Now, and now, Fateful Findings) bears an abundance of heart, melding the traditions of hard sci-fi, covert action thriller, tender romance and phantasmagorical fantasy into a single streamlined style unmistakably his alone. Here, Breen plays a man working through childhood traumas as he maintains success both as an author and as the world’s greatest computer hacker. As befits Breen’s career-spanning thesis about abuse of power, and the havoc it wreaks on the average citizen, his hero also uncovers devastating secrets hidden behind the curtains of government and Big Business. Seize the chance to catch Breen fever with us, as we give you the L.A. premiere of Fateful Findings, with Neil in person!
Dir. Neil Breen, 2012, digital presentation, approx. 90 min.

EIF: Fox's ADHD Pizza Party (feat. Power Violence and YACHT!)

You will listen, laugh, eat and party!

8/17/2013 - 9:30PM

Join Fox’s brand-spanking-new, late-night animation block for a sizzling, bubbling Festival spectacular. ADHD sez:

“Animation Domination High-Def is throwing a pizza party as a part of the Everything Is Festival.

Power Violence is going to do most of the work by being funny on stage, and showing off their friendship. There will also be some stand-up by a ~surprise~ guest. Then, YACHT will do something experimental, musically. And then, ADHD will show an episode of Axe Cop and an episode of High School, USA!

Mostly we’ll all drink beer and eat pizza, because: BEER — AND PIZZA.

It costs $14. I know that may seem like a lot but: 1) it’s not; and 2) you’d spend that on one “specialty cocktail” by a “mixologist” at a bar you went to (in order to look cool), and, this way, you get drinks and food and laughs and new friends.”

EIF Video Variety Show 2013 (feat. sneak preview of Everything Is Terrible Is Getting A Bad Rap!)

A compendium of newly compiled mashups!
Hip-Hop2
8/17/2013 - 7:30PM

One of the very reasons Everything Is Festival! was born: it’s a found footage fantasia, a collage of collages, a seaside video clambake where the weather’s fine and the beached medical waste is at a minimum! In this compendium of newly compiled works, it’s the next eye-searing installment from Rob Schrab’s Found Crap, sneak preview excerpts from Cinefamily’s forthcoming original show The Most Outrageous Moments In Acting, and Everything Is Terrible!’s musical monstrosity Everything Is Terrible! Is Getting A Bad Rap.

EVERYTHING IS TERRIBLE IS GETTING A BAD RAP
Can we B real 4 a second? Everything Is Terrible! is here to stay, and they like fake rap in every way! Everyone knows rap music is best when performed by white people, usually when they’re promoting reasonably priced hammed-burgers — so doesn’t it make sense to (at long last) witness and celebrate the REAL birth of hip-hop? To prove that they’re still ‘with it’ and ‘urban,’ EIT!’s Ghoul Skool and Robotkid have taken the entire history of the co-opting of cool, and bashed it all together into one continuous mix that will not only please your earballs, but also your eyelobes. We’re talking kids rappin’ ’bout stamps, and claymation doughboys spittin’ rhymes ’bout crescent rolls. And you’d never in a billion years think old ladies can rap — but they totally can. This new mix is an experience that flows so well, by the time it’s all over you’ll probably never want listen to music ever again, for various reasons. And it don’t stop — WORD!

Unadultered nerd bliss!

8/17/2013 - 2:30PM

Community creator Dan Harmon’s weekly podcast Harmontown is unadulterated nerd bliss, thanks in no small part to Harmon’s raw, confessional storytelling style — and thanks in humongous part to the majesty of Dungeons & Dragons, through which Harmon and his assembled comedian guests go questing at the finale of every episode. With the aid of his dedicated DungeonMaster and a truckload of booze, Harmon has turned the once-cloistered, homebound tradition of role-playing games into a audience spectacular. For HarmonQuest 2013, Dan, joined by hand-picked (and well-liquored) special guests, will take to the Cinefamily stage for a special live “off-podcast” D&D session — plus, these Cinefamily installments of the game will be recorded for a new animated version of the series. For this festival edition, Dan’s fellow gameplayers will be Danny Pudi and Steve Agee!

If there’s one thing we can bank on, it’s that we know how to make you squeal with an avalanche of kitties, puppies, ponies, bunnies — an avalanche of found-footage adorability. Last year’s Festival brought you “The Feline Gaze” — and this time, we’ve opened the doors big and wide on a bona fide animal kingdom cavalcade of cuteness that’s sure to leave you wagging your tail and howling for more. We’ll be exploring the realm of the cuddly from every angle: cats vs. dogs, birds vs. cats, goats vs. goats, sloths vs. baby hedgehogs — every organism that ever made us go “awww.” Plus, we’ll present a curated selection from Lost & Found Film Club’s endless archive of 16mm films from the golden age of cute. WARNING: You may find that your heart has grown three sizes larger by the end of this program.

Bruce Lee meets Popeye, Dracula and Emanuelle!

8/16/2013 - MIDNITE

CO-PRESENTED BY THE AMERICAN GENRE FILM ARCHIVE

Literal hundreds of imitators have tried to take the throne vacated by the late Bruce Lee (Bruce Li, Bruce Lo, Bruce Lei, etc.), and none of them compare to Bruce Leung and his hallucinatory The Dragon Lives Again. While this isn’t the only film that follows the afterlife of Bruce and his misadventures through Hell — it’s absolutely the best! The Dragon finds himself stuck in Hades, and in order to defend the King Of The Underworld’s throne he must fight (here goes!): Dracula, James Bond, The Man With No Name, The Exorcist, Emmanuelle, Zatoichi the Blind Swordsman, and even softcore sexpot Emmanuelle! “Since this is obviously too formidable of a lineup for even Lee to take on by himself he enlists the aid of fellow souls damned for eternity: Kwai Chang Caine, the One Armed Swordsman and that most accomplished martial artist of them all, Popeye. Yes, that’s right, Popeye. As in Popeye the Sailor Man, the cartoon character.” (Mark Johnston, Shocking Videos.) The Dragon Lives Again first hit the Cinefamily screen as a Everything Is Terrible presentation back in 2011 — and now, thanks to the tireless efforts of Austin’s American Genre Film Archive, we’re able to give this film an unbelievable 35mm screening!
Dir. Kei Law, 1977, 35mm, 90 min.

While the name Mike Judge has long been synonymous with comedy genius and game-changing animation, few have given him his due as a titan of found footage collecting, and we’re honored to help rectify this gross injustice. Join us as we kneel humbly before the beloved creator of Office Space, Idiocracy, and King of the Hill for a rare public screening of his “Judgemental Sampler,” the legendary mixtape of found footage madness circulated amongst Mike’s closest friends for years. In every subtly edited clip, the personality that spawned Beavis and Butt-head clearly shines through, busting guts and blowing minds with the trademark Judge blend of cultural satire.

Multiple melodramas melded into one!
triplefisher_website2
8/15/2013 - MIDNITE

A scathing critique/celebration of early-’90s tabloid culture, twenty years in the making! Back in 1992, a suburban New York teenager named Amy Fisher captured the national media’s attention when she shot her lover’s wife in the face. This sordid tale of underage sex, aggravated assault and Joey Buttafuoco managed to spawn not one, not two, but three separate made-for-TV movies — a television first. Drew Barrymore (The Amy Fisher Story), Alyssa Milano (Casualties of Love: The “Long Island Lolita” Story) and Nöelle Parker (Lethal Lolita — Amy Fisher: My Story) all took stabs at portraying the damaged young lady, yet a true on-screen depiction of Amy Fisher has never emerged — until now. In this Rashomon of found footage, director Dan Kapelovitz (“Threee Geniuses”) mind-melds the multiple melodramas into one ultimate metadrama mashup. Joey Buttafuoco in person!

Everything is Terrible! — the dumb-faced, narcissistic goof-troupe of found footage — are dishing out their very first stand-up comedy special: Comic Relief Zero. This special is the opposite of special, jam-packed with the most cringe-inducing set-ups and bomb-dropping punchlines ripped from their magnetic video tape time capsules. Today’s hottest ventriloquists, racists, prop comics, sexists, impersonators, homophobes, and talk show hosts wish this footage was still in the landfills, for the streets will run blue with these wanton wisecracks about women, fat people puns, and disability gags galore. Are you oppressed and underrepresented in society? Well then, watch out as we pull back the banana peel and take a head-first descent into the brick wall of our own mind. Plus, the fur-covered, glitter-smothered gang from EIT! will emcee the festivities, bringing all the costumed merriment that has made EIT! live shows (in)famous.

MONDO PUBLIC ACCESS (feat. live performances by David Liebe Hart, Francine Dancer & Harvey Sid Fisher!) – 8:00pm
The people have spoken — and what they’re saying is weird! Once upon a time, before YouTube, remote control renegades itching to scratch the underbelly of the idiot box needed to look no further than their local listings for those two hallowed words — “public access” — to know that their cable bill dollars were hard at work. Join us for one of our signature Cinefamily mondo mixes, featuring the titans of the community-based tube: expect potty-mouthed psychics, lip-synching divas, confessional call-in chaos, psychedelic pranksters, greenscreen fallout, and, of course, clinically insane people with their pets — all getting down and doing their thing in our living room. Scrambling cable boxes and brains alike, these extraordinary ordinary people made legendary non-commercial television in the untamed wilderness of the airwaves. Who said the FCC never did you any favors? We’ll also salute the public access heroes that made Hollywood proud, with LIVE APPEARANCES by David Liebe Hart, Francine Dancer and Harvey Sid Fisher!

BEAUTY DAY – approx. 9:30pm (filmmaker Jay Cheel in person!)
Canada’s most ahead-of-his-time public access artiste — and the man who literally broke his neck for ratings — is the subject of Beauty Day, the life-affirming doc on a mad genius-turned-viral-smash-hit. “What motivates someone to snort eggs through their nostrils, ski off a rooftop or attempt to remove a swimming pool cover through the most reckless method imaginable? Welcome to the mind of Ralph Zavadil, better known by his fans as ‘Cap’n Video’. Years before Jackass, Tom Green and the YouTube era of instant fame, Zavadil’s 1990s cable access TV show brought him notoriety — but the self-produced program was abruptly cancelled after an unfortunate Easter stunt involving chocolate, an obese rabbit and cute puppies. Blending vintage video footage of Zavadil’s stunts with his present attempts to stage an anniversary special, filmmaker Jay Cheel delivers a Herzog-inspired adventure of a pioneer living life on the edge, filled with humour, heart and its share of bodily fluids.” — Alex Rogalski, Hot Docs Filmmaker Jay Cheel in person!
Dir. Jay Cheel, 2011, digital presentation, 92 min.

CO-PRESENTED BY AMOEBA MUSIC

“You couldn’t ask for much more than this — a must-see for all cinephiles that came of age during the VHS era” – Cory Everett, Indiewire

“A passionate geek doc that not only follows the life and death of the videocassette, but also the amazingly complex backstory of how it became a format for the ages — transforming from afterthought into obsession. Interspersed with endearing insight into the lives of countless modern-day VHS collectors and enthusiasts, this stand-up-and-cheer industrial underdog story sheds light on why geeks and everymen alike can’t stop thinking about those temperamental plastic black cases that gave us so many hours of home entertainment. From Japanese tape innovators and the VHS/Beta war, to American schlockmeisters and the legions of fans who still love them, this is the tale of those daring souls who took cinema out of the theatre and brought it permanently into our homes. Featuring intimate, enlightening, and often hilarious interviews with Frank Henenlotter, Jason Eisener, Atom Egoyan, Charles Band, Cassandra Peterson, Mamoru Oshii, Mike Vraney, Lloyd Kaufman, Roy Frumkes and many more!” — Ted Geoghegan, Fantastia Fest. Schedules permitting, director Josh Johnson and members of the filmmaking team will be here in person for a Q&A after the film!

EIF: Final Cut: Ladies And Gentlemen

A found footage shot heard round the world!

8/12/2013 - 7:30PM

CO-PRESENTED BY USC SCHOOL OF CINEMATIC ARTS

A giddy found-footage shot heard ‘round the world! For years, we’ve been waiting for an intrepid soul to craft an entirely narrative feature comprised of images and sounds from other feature films — and Final Cut – Ladies And Gentlemen, the culmination of three years’ worth of editing by visionary Hungarian director György Pàlfi (Taxidermia), is nothing short of astonishing. With the totality of the moviegoing experience as its subject, Final Cut juggles clips from over 450 of the greatest films of all time, and bends deep reserves of movie tricks, tropes and triumphs into a single flowing arc. Iconic characters are raised through childhood, fall in love, go to war, marry — and as we jump from Marilyn Monroe to Jackie Chan, from Ozu to Lynch, from the Twenties to the Millenium and back again, we bask in the unity of our shared mythos. Whether you take it in as either an immersive art piece or the all-time highlight reel of your dreams, Final Cut taps directly into the cinematic subconscious with a sensitivity sure to captivate casual movie buffs and hardcore cineastes in equal measure.
Dir. György Pálfi, 2012, digital presentation, 84 min.
