In November last year Danish band Efterklang revealed that they had made a film with French director of great films, Vincent Moon. You can read all about it here. The news update this time is they are inviting YOU to host your own screening of the film, entitled An Island. These are known as Private-Public screenings. That's all as long as you meet these conditions...
• The screenings need to offer free entry
• The screenings need to be public
• The screenings need to have a minimum capacity of five people
• The screenings need to be verified by Efterklang and Vincent Moon and only screenings that are featured on AnIsland.cc are official Private-Public Screenings.
They can take place in any place where you could imagine. Well, within reason. Your lounge, your bathroom if it's big enough, a shed at the bottom of the garden or your local village hall. Applications will be accepted from today and the P-P screenings will run for two months between February and March of this year. Updates on Private-Public and official screenings can be found here.
Both Moon and the band had this to say on the matter.
"We hope that a lot of people will host and attend screenings of AN ISLAND. The Private-Public Screenings are our attempt at creating a free and inspiring distribution method for our film. It is also our attempt to give something back to our many supporters around the world. We have financed this film ourselves and we hope that we can recoup some of that money through donations. However, the memory of the 4 days we spent on the island of Als in August 2010 and our joy and pride of the finished film is a huge reward in itself."
There has also been a third teaser trailer for An Island release in the past few days. Watch it below:
