Karlovy Vary Festival in the Czech Republic

18 06 2011

Delighted to report that the film will be shown July 3rd, 4th, and 8th, at 4pm (yes 3 screenings) during the upcoming Karlovy Vary International Film Festival in the Czech Republic.  Karlovy Vary is an internationally famous spa town, and the festival is also a major international event — the most important film festival in central Europe, with 179 feature films of all type on the slate for this year, and I’m excited that mine is one of them.

The festival attracts a huge contingent of young film students and fans, and has gained a reputation as a sort of Woodstock like film festival — sounds good to me.  But it also has the glitz and glamor of a major festival with A-list actors and films on display — this year Judi Dench and John Turturro are getting awards, and John Malkovich will also be in attendance.

But enough about them (and enough dropping of names) — I too will also be there for the first four days of the festival (I’m definitely not getting an award, the film is being shown out of competition), but I will be doing Q and As at the first two screenings, and looking forward to enjoying the town and other festival events and films….and sampling the healing waters that started it all in this legendary spa town.

Here’s a copy of the website listing for the film:

A documentary about the bizarre destiny of music, computers and people in the 20th century. American composer Raymond Scott made several major discoveries in music: in the 1930s he invented “cartoon soundtracks,” and in post-war America he created the first computer music programs and was a pioneer in the construction of synthesizers. The film was made by his son, who also examines the relationship between his father and himself.

If you’re in that part of the world, hope to see you there!
