Memo to Members!
RE: THE DFS SUMMER SCHEDULE IS CRAZY!
Dear DFS Members!
As many of you may have noticed, there is SO much going on every day at the Sie FilmCenter these days, that even I, as a staff member, have a hard time keeping up! As Martha Stewart would say "This is a GOOD THING!"
The main thing I like to do for you in this blog, is list in chronological order, those events that are either ONLY FOR MEMBERS or are the kind of events that I know members love (in-person by guests, panels, special add ons for some of our programming...you know what I mean!)
This summer will be FILLED with all kinds of SPECIAL EVENTS: Film On The Rocks, Raise the Roof, Summer Scream etc.........But I think starting today and for the rest of the summer, I will "highlight" one film each week that is in our regular line up that I think you WON'T want to miss! That way, it will help you to decide when you look at the long list of offerings, which one to give a second look at!
I'll call this listing "A FILM NOT TO MISS!" So here goes the second installment of the Summer:
"A FILM NOT TO MISS"
Week of May 16 - 23, 2013
I am completely fascintated by a young actress, Katie Aselton. She is not only starring in this film, she is also the director. She is part of a great new breed of young actresses who go out and create new work for themselves, rather than waiting around for someone to do it for them.
I read about her in a great article in Vanity Fair this month, a short but sweet piece on her life and loves - she is married to the indie darling Mark Duplass. You may remember him from films that screened at SFC & SDFF. (The Puffy Chair, a film written and directed by brothers Mark and Jay Duplass - considered two of the pioneers of the naturalistic “mumblecore” genre - The Puffy Chair was at the Sie FilmCenter and Jeff Lives at Home played at SDFF in 2011.) Jeff wrote the screenplay to BLACK ROCK. If modern thrillers are your thing (think ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU meets BLAIR WITCH PROJECT) then this is A FILM NOT TO MISS!
BLACK ROCK - playing at the Sie FilmCenter, Fri. 5/17 - Thurs. 5/23. CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO AND TO PURCHASE TIX

Directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts
Rated R -
to rave reviews at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, The
Kings of Summer is
a unique coming-of-age comedy about three teenage friends—Joe (Nick Robinson),
Patrick (Gabriel Basso) and the eccentric and unpredictable Biaggio (Moises
Arias)—who, in the ultimate act of independence, decide to spend their summer
building a house in the woods and living off the land. Free from their parents'
rules, their idyllic summer quickly becomes a test of friendship as each boy
learns to appreciate the fact that family—whether it is the one you're born into
or the one you create—is something you can't run away from. The
Kings of Summer,
director Jordan Vogt-Roberts' feature film debut, also stars Alison Brie (TV's
"Mad Men"), Mary Lynn Rajskub ("24"), Nick Offerman ("Parks and Recreation") and
Megan Mullally (Smashed,
"Will & Grace").
