    1. This Week’s Must Read: Making Light of It has an extensive interview with Brett Kashmere regarding the imminent publication of the soon-to-be invaluable INCITE #4, which will focus on alternative screening of experimental media. But the interview also gets into Brett’s background of being a Candian filmmaker who migrated to the U.S. and how that led to his publication’s diverse set of contributors. There’s also still time to contribute to INCITE’s fundraising campaign.
    2. Speaking of necessary film journals, for you journalists out there, OtherZine is accepting proposals for their Sept. edition through tomorrow July 1st. (Sorry, didn’t know about this until late.)

  1. Millennium Film Journal reveals they are going to publish new articles by “elder statesmen” Gene Youngblood and David Curtis in their 35th annual issue, which is very exciting.
  2. BAMCinemaFest has a quick Q&A with Zach Clark on the occasion of the fest screening his latest feature White Reindeer, which is currently tearing the fest circuit a new one.
  3. The Washington Post has a great interview with Sky Sitney regarding the huge changes she faced running AFI SilverDocs in Washington D.C. this year, from venue and sponsorship changes to the fest pairing filmmakers with advocacy organizations. (For those who don’t know, I currently work for AFI, but not for SilverDocs, nor with Sky.)
  4. The Washington Times interviewed the Journal’s favorite documentarian, Jeff Krulik, about the controversial issue surrounding Led Zepplin Played Here.
  5. Bob Moricz raves about the recent, epic Experimental Film Festival Portland, and not just because he had a film in it.
  6. Where in the world was the best place to be an exploitation movie junkie? If you said Times Square, the Phantom of Pulp will smack you and say Detroit.
  7. Two more films have been added to the 366 Weird Movies list, as voted on by that site’s reader.
  8. Light Industry has a great old screening letter of invitation to the Collective for Living Cinema.
  9. J.J. Murphy reviews Matt Porterfield’s third film, I Used to Be Darker, calling it the director’s best yet.
  10. Was The Craft the Clueless for gay goth punks?
  11. Not underground, and perhaps this is of interest to just film academic and pseudo-academic types (I fall into the latter): David Bordwell on the evolution on the study of the business end of Hollywood and how it affects other aspects of film study.
