The Junk Food Film Festival – April 2024 at Zinema

Hey all, this is my festival; I run it with my partner Marin. We used to host a film series called Midnight Movies at 7 at the Zinema and this will very much be in the same vein. We’ll be giving away prizes, have special guests, and eat a ton of junk food.

Please make sure to follow us on Facebook; we’ll be revealing the lineup in the months ahead as we get ready.

Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour returns to Duluth

After a one-year absence, the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour returns to Duluth on Jan. 7-8 at DECC Symphony Hall. This stop on the tour is hosted by the Duluth Cross Country Ski Club, and proceeds from the event benefit local community ski projects. For more details on the event visit the PDD Calendar entry.

One last late night before the holiday

I spent Saturday at the Marcus Duluth Theater, which is on the lake [in the DECC]. For point of wry comparison, the Marcus Lakes theater is in Hermantown, near no obvious lake. My sweetheart Zomi and my friend Kate and I hoped to see Holmes and Watson.

“Gleahan and the Knaves of Industry” now crowdfunding

Local filmmaker Samuel T. Weston is no stranger to filmmaking here in Duluth. Last year he made three short films here in town, and another one premiered on the Duluth CW’s “Night at the Movies.”

Now he needs your help with his next big project: a feature film called Gleahan and the Knaves of Industry. Sam has once again partnered with the team that’s growing at the Duluth Film Collective. They call Gleahan an Adventure Comedy where “an opportunistic asshole joins the quest of a delusional man who thinks he lives in a fantasy world.”

Lots of movies

So it’s end of summer, and the weather’s been … uneven … and it’s getting darker earlier. My heart turns toward movies.

“Duluth is Horrible” Casting Call

Everyone’s upcoming least favorite film is having auditions Jan. 30 & Jan. 31. Here is the notice with all the info about the film & characters. If interested, please send me an email with any acting experience you have, a pic, and what roles you prefer. Acting experience isn’t necessary. Just be willing to work and have fun with it. Thanks and I look forward to meeting with you.

The Theater Formerly Known As Omnimax

I’m looking for more info on the old Omnimax and the D-Box experience. How does one get a D-Box ticket? What’s it like? How much does it cost? Is it worth it?

Pride Film Fest

I am working on a film festival for Pride. If anyone has any movies they are working on that they want to show, get in touch. Sordid Lives is remarkably funny if you haven’t seen it.

Movies in the Park 2010

After initially deciding to take a year off, Trent and Brita Edgerton, the amazing local couple that has produced MITP since 2006, sent me an email today telling me that the event is BACK on with a new sponsor, the Greater Downtown Council. Information about sponsorship opportunities and a TENTATIVE schedule is here.

That’s all I know.

Made in Minnesota Thriller “Four Boxes” Coming to Zinema 2 for World Theatrical Debut

Four Boxes, a made-in-Minnesota thriller described as Rear Window on the Internet” and starring Justin Kirk (Showtime’s Weeds), will make its World Theatrical Premiere in Duluth at the Zinema 2 Theater May 21 to 27, 2010.

Written, produced and directed by Minneapolis filmmaking husband-and-wife team Wyatt McDill and Megan Huber, Four Boxes had its World Premiere at last year’s South-by-Southwest Film Festival in Austin, Texas. The film will tour nationally in the Fall to coincide with a Halloween release of the DVD, but Duluth will be the first place in America – outside of a festival – to get a peek at the film variously described as “The Blair Witch Project meets YouTube,” and “The Sex, Lies and Videotape of our time.” Visit to see the trailer and find out more!
