Tohubohu News: June 2017

Despite being buried with final preparations for the DC 48 Hour Film Project (coming up next weekend, June 23–25, in case it slipped anyone’s mind), we’ve apparently decided we’re not busy enough — because we’re turning around and doing it again immediately afterward! Mark your calendars for July 14–16 and the Richmond 48 Hour Film Project! As usual, Friday (in this case July 14) will be the big event kickoff and scriptwriting session, Saturday (July 15) will be the main shooting day, and Sunday (July 16) will be final editing, postproduction, and submission!

Rest assured that (despite the distant kickoff and drop-off location) we’re still planning to shoot locally. And (fingers crossed), we’re hoping to partner with a top-notch Alexandria-based production company (though I don’t want to say too much for fear of jinxing it). So be sure to let us know if you can join us for this second Tohubohu film outing of 2017!

In other news from the past month or so, “Green House” screened at the Red Shed Film Festival in Rockport, Massachusetts, “Please Forward” appeared at the Kino Zukunft Open-Air Cinema Shorts in Berlin, Germany, and nine Tohubohu films showed at the Ocean City Film Festival in Ocean City, Maryland: “Number One With a Bullet,” “Green House,” “Touched by a Lawyer,” “Remorseless,” “The Writer’s Dilemma,” “Uke & Trust Me,” “Codependence Day,” “Tex: Wisdom of the Old West,” and “The Greater Evil.”

Coming up in the immediate future, two films will be screening just this coming weekend: “The Writer’s Dilemma” at the Art All Night Trenton Film Festival in Trenton, New Jersey, and “The Greater Evil” at the East Van Showcase in Vancouver, British Columbia. “Tex” will show at next weekend’s North Beach American Film Festival in North Beach, Maryland (alas, during our DC 48 Hour Film Project venture), and just a week later, “The Greater Evil” will be crossing the pond for the Salento Finibus Terrae touring film series in Italy’s Apulia region. Speaking of “The Greater Evil,” they’ve already announced that it will be taking Best Thriller honors at the upcoming Silver Screen Film Festival in Tampa, Florida, so we’ve got that to look forward to!

Check out our complete listing (as of now, anyway) of upcoming Tohubohu screenings below!

Upcoming Tohubohu Festival Screenings

This month’s selected Tohubohu trailer: Tohubohu’s first venture into the horror/thriller genre, 2010’s “Liability,” recently shown at the Paura Festival Internacional de Cine de Terror in Valencia, Spain, and soon to be appearing at the Horror Avenue Film Festival in Mattoon, Illinois.

Tohubohu News: April 2017

Set aside the weekend of June 23–25, folks, because at long last, the 48 Hour Film Project is returning to Washington for 2017 — and Tohubohu will be making a movie! Friday, June 23, will be the big event kickoff (and when our writers toil away into the wee hours on the script), Saturday the 24th will be the main shooting day, and Sunday the 25th will be our final push to get the film ready for delivery!

In other news from the past month, “Tex: Wisdom of the Old West” recently screened at the Iconaclash Cinema Review in Annapolis, “Winston” screened at both the Maryland International Film Festival in Hagerstown and the UPike Film and Media Arts Festival in Pikeville, Kentucky, and “Green House” screened at the i.P.A.S. (Independent Political Activism Short) Film Festival in Athens, Greece. And, of course, a selection of fourteen Tohubohu films screened across the three days of the Indiana Comic Con Film Festival in Indianapolis (where, though three of those films were nominated for awards, we unfortunately came away empty-handed).

Look below for a list of more upcoming Tohubohu screening opportunities!

Upcoming Tohubohu Festival Screenings

This month’s selected Tohubohu trailer: 2011’s environmentally-themed “Green House,” recently shown at the i.P.A.S. Film Festival in Athens, Greece, and the Indiana Comic Con Film Festival in Indianapolis (where it was nominated for “Best Comedy”) — and soon to appear at the Red Shed Film Festival in Rockport, Massachusetts, the Tampa Bay Comic Con Film Festival, and the San Francisco Comic Con Film Festival.

Starting 2017 with a bang!

A lot’s happened since our last newsletter in November — to say nothing of the fact that it’s time for our annual call to gear up for this year’s 48 Hour Film Project!

I’ll start with the latter first, since that’ll be fairly straightforward: If you’re interested in joining the Tohubohu team for this year’s weekend filmmaking extravaganza (dates still TBD), let me know sooner rather than later! Be advised that since the nation apparently didn’t heed the cautionary tale of “The Greater Evil” — and reality seems to be nearing that film’s dire conclusion more with each passing day — it’s a near-certainty that whatever we produce will have substantial political overtones…

All right, with that call to action out of the way, let’s talk about the festival appearances our films have had since last we spoke:






And we have still more to come in the weeks ahead (so be sure to let me know ASAP if anyone’s interested in representing us at these events)!

And… drumroll, please… a massive slate of Tohubohu Films will be screening at not one, not two, but three comic convention festivals this year: The Indiana Comic Con Film Festival in April, the Tampa Bay Comic Con Film Festival in July, and the San Francisco Comic Con Film Festival in September!

In all, fourteen Tohubohu films will be showcased at each festival: “All Roads Lead Away,” “Please Forward,” “Uncertainty Principle,” “Liability,” “Number One With a Bullet,” “Green House,” “Touched by a Lawyer,” “Remorseless,” “The Writer’s Dilemma,” “Uke & Trust Me,” “Codependence Day,” “Tex: Wisdom of the Old West,” “The Greater Evil,” andWinston.”

Moreover, four of those films have already been nominated for awards at their respective festivals:

All in all, a fantastic close to 2016, and a promising start to 2017! (On a side note, I’m realizing that I have got to start sending these out more frequently, given the sheer amount of news that they cover as it stands!)
