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!
