NYFF announces two Galas, the KCS screening is tomorrow and Riff Trax is Wednesday

A couple of quick notes.

Tomorrow is the KCS screening of Dirty Carnival at the Tribeca Cinemas. Its free. Doors open at 630 for the show at 7. Sadly I think time and tide will keep all of the Unseen correspondents away from yet another screening.

The New York Film Festival has Just announced that the new Pedro Almodovar film The Skin I Live In and the new David Cronenberg film A Dangerous Method will both be getting gala screenings. While I’m thrilled at the prospect of being able to see both films, I wince at the notion of a gala screening since it means it will be pricey. (Remember that even assuming that we at Unseen are allowed to attend the Press Screenings we will also be with you in the trenches for some of the screenings and the cost of all the films come out of our own pockets). Festival News should be coming fast and furious over the next week so keep an eye on their website.

Wednesday night the Riff Trax guys are doing a number on Jack the Giant Killer as a Fathom Event. John, Bully and myself will be attending so expect a report.(and if you’re going get tickets soon. Some of the New York Metro area shows have been sold out for a while now)
