Moon & Efterklang Unique Film Screenings

 

Host a film screening
in your home! Your back yard! Your public library!

 

By Blurt Staff

 

In November 2010 Efterklang and celebrated indie filmmakerVincent
Moon announced that they were working on a film together and that it would
premiere in February 2011. The film was shot the previous August on an island
off the Danish coast and featured the 8 musicians plus a slew of locals in performances,
experiments and collaboration. Then in December Efterklang indicated they would
 bring that film,  An
Island
,  with them on their European
tour that starts next month. Dates below, along with a teaser for the film.

Now comes word that fans can host their own premiere screenings of An Island. As of today people can sign up and the screenings will start February 1st and
run until March 31st. Moon & Efterklang call these screenings
Private-Public Screenings and the rules are very simple:

 

  • The screenings need to have free entrance
  • The screenings need to be public.
  • The screenings need to have a minimum capacity of 5 people

 

The screenings need to be verified by Efterklang &
Vincent Moon and only screenings that are featured on www.anisland.cc  are official Private Public Screenings

In other words as long as entrance is free and it is an open event (as capacity
permits) the Private-Public Screenings can take place in your home, at a café,
in a school auditorium or any place you can think of. The Private-Public
Screenings will run for two months – February and March 2011. The screenings
are private because they are hosted by private people and public because the
screenings are official and open – hence the name Private-Public Screenings.
(However, if you plan to host a Private-Public Screening in your home then you
have full control over who shows up.)

 

According to the filmmaker and the band, “We hope that a lot
of people will host and attend screenings of An Island. The Private-Public
Screenings are our attempt at creating a free and inspiring distribution method
for our film. It is also our attempt to give something back to our many
supporters around the world. We have financed this film ourselves and we hope
that we can recoup some of that money through donations. However, the memory of
the 4 days we spent on the island
of Als in August 2010 and
our joy and pride of the finished film is a huge reward in itself.”

As of today it is possible to submit Private-Public Screenings. For more
