AT EDINBURGH FILM FESTIVAL ON JUNE 24
A MULTI PLATFORM RELEASE THIS SEPTEMBER THROUGH WARP FILMS
Warp X is pleased to announce the UK premiere of All Tomorrow’s Parties at the Edinburgh International Film Festival screening on 24 and 25 June. All Tomorrow’s Parties is a kaleidoscopic journey into the parallel musical universe of the cult music festival of the same name.
All Tomorrow’s Parties is a DIY concert film featuring performances from an eclectic mix artists including: Battles, Sonic Youth, Belle And Sebastian, Patti Smith, Animal Collective, Grinderman, Iggy and the Stooges, Portishead, Mogwai, Slint, Grizzly Bear, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Gossip, Daniel Johnston and The Boredoms.
The film is a semi-found bricolage made from Super8, camcorder and mobile phone footage contributed by over two hundred filmmakers, fans and musicians over the festival’s recent history, with key contributions from co-director Jonathan Caouette (Tarnation) and cinematographer Vincent Moon (The Take Away Shows, Arcade Fire).
Future Cinema, in association with Warp Films, ATP and Synergy, will present the premiere of All Tomorrow’s Parties as part of a unique live cinema event at the Edinburgh International Film Festival on June 24. The film will be screened and brought to life in an immersive and 360 degree musical experience, including live performances from very special surprise guests.
All Tomorrow’s Parties is a fiercely independent festival that many music lovers regard as one of the most important music events in the world. In an intimate and communal atmosphere, free of corporate sponsorship, it serves up a heady combination of alternative music, crazy golf and chalet-living, with musicians and fans living side by side. At each festival a band or artist is chosen to gather up their favourite artistswho perform over a weekend in an out-of-season holiday camp by the sea. Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore described the festival as the ‘ultimate mix tape’.
All Tomorrow’s Parties will have a UK multi-platform release this September with one night only theatrical events, a DVD release and digital download available through Warp Films.
