BendFilm: The Movies and the Parties

The guide to your parties and movies of BendFilm.

Today I entered the Liberty Theater for the first time ever (the largely empty space has been closed for a few years now thanks to some legal troubles from prior owners), to pick up some info on the BendFilm Festival, which kicks off tonight with an opening reception and screening at the Tower Theatre.

To open the festival, BendFilm is screening A Film With Me In It, a feature-length narrative that focuses on a pair of down-on-their-luck slackers who watch as everyone else living in their Dublin apartment building dies. The dark, dark, dark comedy follows the two as they try to figure out what the hell is going on while not landing themselves in jail.

Check out the trailer for A Film With Me In It below:

Also tonight in BendFilm news…the annual Bash at the Box, which was once a party that turned clothing boutique Hot Box Betty into a full-blown dance club, has moved to the Blacksmith, where organizers promise a bash with or without the box.
