UPDATE: Congrats to our winner Laverne Moody! Enjoy the event.

ORIGINAL POST: Apparently, it’s indie film week in Fresno — with Swede Fest 6 coming on Saturday and another cool film event Thursday night at Fresno State’s Lyles Center Auditorium. It’s the “Angry Filmmaker Survival Guide” tour, with filmmaker and author Kelley Baker.

So if you’re a local film buff or an aspiring filmmaker interested in hearing an experienced filmmaker (Kelley has had three films released and worked with Gus Van Sant) talk about the challenges of the movie industry, this is your chance. Jon Gann, founder of the DC Shorts Film Festival, joins Kelley in the lecture. To get a better taste, check out this interview that Rick Bentley did with Kelley.

There are so many great indie films, so it’s hard to say. But if pressed, today I would go with Once. I saw it when it first came out & still listen to the music on a regular basis.

Suzanne says:

Of course, Clerks is a classic too.

To everyone coming out tonight, remember you’ll want to use the parking code “17060058″ to get FREE parking in any of Fresno State’s lots, but preferably one close to the Lyles Center. :)
