Volunteers needed for local film festival

Duluth Superior Film Festival 2016 PosterThe seventh annual Duluth Superior Film Festival delivers film, music and art to the Twin Ports region June 1-5. In its short history, the festival has presented a distinctively imaginative and diverse lineup of international, American independent and regional films.

To help maintain the merriment, volunteers are needed.

The Duluth Superior Film Festival needs wheels!

The Duluth Superior Film Festival needs a 12/15/18-passenger vehicle for use during the festival. Every year the fabulous Riki McManus of the Upper Minnesota Film Office takes filmmakers and guests around the area and shows them all the great locations the area has to offer in an effort to get them to come back and shoot their next film here. In the past, we rented the vehicles, or got great help from the Duluth Experience. TDE is booked this year, and some weird liability change has taken all the rentals out of the market. Do you have (I’m looking at you, local bands) or know of anyone who could let us use one of these types of vehicles? We have money! Dates of use would just be a few hours on Friday, June 5 and Saturday, June 6. Please contact richard @ ds-ff.com if you know of anyone who could help. Thank you! Come see some free films!

Duluth Superior Film Festival seeks volunteers

It is time again for the Duluth Superior Film Festival’s call for volunteers. This is an international film festival, and June 3-7 will be the sixth year of bringing independent film, musical events, performances, parties and art to the Duluth area. To keep the fun running smoothly, we depend on the help of volunteers.

Duluth Superior Film Festival seeks volunteers

This is a very exciting year for the Duluth Superior Film Festival, as it is our fifth anniversary. We have some excellent films lined up (as usual), and some exciting guests. You might have read about Patty Duke’s planned attendance for our screening of You’ll Like My Mother, which was filmed in Duluth in 1972, as well as a return of Mackenzie Astin (Iron Will and Patty Duke’s son), who is attending this year as a juror. If not, here is the report from the Northland’s NewsCenter: Patty Duke expected at fifth annual Duluth Superior Film Festival

This is a big year for us, and because we value our volunteers tremendously and will be needing all hands on deck, we are excited to be able to provide lifetime film festival passes (and sweet access to special events) as a thank you to this year’s volunteers. We’ll also provide you with a T-shirt. What we ask in return is some of your time, and to pass along our request for volunteers.

I was able to attend a recent Duluth-Superior Film Festival party. At the risk of turning PDD into a celebrity gossip sheet — can you spot the local arts personalities?

Does Crispin Glover’s film It is Fine! Everything is Fine romanticize the rape and torture of women?

In the wake of the screening of Crispin Glover’s film, “It is Fine! Everything is Fine,” as part of the Duluth/Superior Film Festival last weekend – a film that romanticizes a man’s explicit sexual fantasies of the rape and torture of women – I have some questions for progressive Duluthians who were there and for our community as a whole.
