BEST ON VOD

New Year’s Eve. A time of hope, promises, change and better times. We leave behind the anxieties, vices and troubles of the previous year and welcome the flipping of the calendar with bated breath and the excitement of reinvention. With your resolutions in order, your friends and family by your side and the countdown on, what could possibly go wrong?!  Well, in the holiday ensemble comedy “Auld Lang Syne”, we see that the celebration of a New Year with your best pals does not always go according to plan. As the famous Scottish tune/poem of the same title asks us as we surround ourselves with friends both old and new on this promising night: should old acquaintance be forgot?  Indie Street might finally have the answer to this age-old question! We are proud to finally announce the November 15th VOD release of Indie Street Film Festival Audience Award Winner “Auld Lang Syne”. Director Johanna McKeon and cast have created a refreshing take on the concept of “New Year, New You”, and with an ensemble featuring all types of artists (including a playwright, actress, musician, theater producer, and photographer), this is an indie film that truly represents what it means to be passionate about your craft, no matter the odds or what others think.  A New Year pops up every 12 months. Sometimes friends and lovers come and go from your life. Change is inevitable. But one thing is certain: “Auld Lang Syne” is a heart-warming and hilarious independent creation that is a must-see if you love art, indie film, and the hijinks that only holidays like New Year’s Eve can bring about! So, mark your calendars folks because Indie Street will be the place to be on November 15th! In the meantime, if you’re in the LA area, you can catch the West Coast Premiere of the film next week (head here for ticket info) OR watch the trailer below!!  You can now catch the film on Indie Street here!  

 

Penned (and re-penned) by Clara Mamet, this off-beat coming-of-age flick encompasses all the tragedies of teen-hood: suspension from school, family woes, the loss of a friend, a broken heart and lack of inspiration. The film raised funds on Indiegogo to help create this dysfunctional ecclectic-family comedy (in the same vein of Wes Anderson's The Royal Tenenbaums). This will make for perfect holiday viewing: Rent it on Vimeo On Demand.

Indie Street is not completely supportive of the shockumentary approach where documentarians scare the viewers into changing their ways. Not because we don't agree with many of the messages of these films, but more so because the only ones watching the docs are typically those who more or less agree with the message. This newly released documentary "Plastic Paradise" brought to you by Virgil Films, is a well done piece, but even more importantly it has such a simple cause and action that can be taken by any person in society to help ignite change.
