Gadabout Film Festival hits AK!
Indy films, music by the Kiss Ups, and book release celebration

The Gadabout is a nationally touring film festival that seeks to open new avenues of distribution for truly independent filmmakers that get pushed aside by Hollywood and the film festival circuit. Focusing on short, mostly "low to no budget" films, the Gadabout offers an alternative to the cliche world of commercial film. Whether they are amateur, or recent film school grads, our filmmakers love what they are doing, and their work shows it. The Gadabout is NOT a competition, rather a celebration of independent film and video.

Moving into it's third year, the Gadabout Traveling Film Festival has completed two national tours coast to coast, and has screened films from all over the country, and the world (India, Singapore, Australia, Argentina, Isreal, U.K.). Independent in every sense, these films share the same willingness to challenge the conventions set for filmmaking. This is filmmaking as an artform.

Growing even more, this year we will be touring with live music by hyper-pop favorites, The Kiss Ups (http://www.thekissups.com), a stencil art show, a zine distro, and a book tour by our friend Jacinta Bunnell, ("girls will be boys will be girls will be..." and the "Girls are not Chicks" coloring books.) This year we will include a program facilitating people of all ages to make their own films, art, zines, etc. For some dates we will be joining forces with the Radical Education Roadshow and author Anne Elizabeth Moore ("Hey Kidz! Buy This Book", http://www.softskull.com). So we are growing into a total indie-media extravaganza!
