We’ve been hearing all sorts of buzz on this uber-hip, quirky new indie flick The Scenesters, so much so that we’re feeling compelled to share. Judging by their website, The Scenesters has already garnered beaucoups of awards from film fests across the country and beyond, including Slamdance, the Seattle True Independent Film Festival (STIFF), and the Edmonton International Film Festival. Pretty impressive for a low budget, hand-held camera piece. The magic is all in the story, and comedy film troupe The Vacationeers seem to have hit the mark as the film’s screenwriters, cleverly spoofing mystery/crime films and hedging their bets on today’s fringe hipster market. If you happen to hit the west coast this month or know any film buffs who might be interested, mark off August 20 – 26 and check out the great happenings in store for the film premiere at the Downtown Independent Theater.
If we’ve piqued your curiosity, GOOD. We love showcasing exciting indie film — if we find there’s demand, perhaps we could finagle a screening of The Scenesters here in the Mill City!
We invite you to visit The Scenesters and enjoy this sneak peek:
