In the past couple of months we’ve been approached by people interested in doing Temple of Schlock-themed film festivals, gallery exhibits and magazine & newspaper feature articles. We’re currently looking for a venue in the New York area to run the first Temple of Schlock Film Festival. In the meantime, we’ve teamed up with our friends at CULTRA DVD as co-sponsors of “The Art of Exploitation,” a Friday night film series that will run next month at the Cinefamily @ The Silent Movie Theater in Los Angeles. For a measly $10 you get a triple bill – two advertised features plus a bonus mystery film – and we’re working on getting special guests for at least one of these shows. Oh, and these programs consist of film prints only. No DVD projection!
The program list is below. Check out the Cinefamily site for details.
