I decided not to write the review, that could influence people to watch it. Since is our first time as online exhibitor, I would like to see how the world of mouth is going to play out here. But believe me, since August 2008 we're been trying to find a movie like this and a director willing to allow us to experiment, so Luis, we're very thankful to you for allow us to do the Internet World Premiere of "C@staways".
I hope you enjoy the film, leave your comments, good or bad, and recommend the film to your friends if you like it and to your enemies if you don't.

I'm sorry I've been a little distant from the blog lately, I've been really busy with the pre-production of my next feature subHysteria, but I couldn't pass the chance to let you know that Night & Weekends, the new film from director Joe Swanberg, this time co-directing with actor Greta Gerwig, it's opening tomorrow at IFC Theaters. This is the 4th no-budget film from Swanberg since 2005, his previous works are: Kissing on the Mouth, LOL and Hannah Takes the Stairs.
Mattie and James are in love. But too many mornings and too many miles apart have taken a toll on them. As they struggle with the distance between New York and Chicago, their visits become reminders of the difficulties, not the pleasures, of their relationship. Joe Swanberg and Greta Gerwig follow Hannah Takes the Stairs with this intimate portrayal of longing and confusion. This time Swanberg co-stars with Gerwig, and Gerwig co-directs with Swanberg, creating a film that resonates deeply and leaves scars that fade but can’t heal.

IN SEARCH OF A MIDNIGHT KISS
Guerrilla Fillmaker Alex Holdridge lunched his career in 2001 with a small film called Wrong Numbers that end up winning the Audience Award of the Austin Film Festival, the budget of the film was $ 10,000 and the story was about two dumped nineteen-year-old men that just want to forget their individual problems over a few beers and was set out into the underage world where strange things happen. Bad directions, bad luck, and teenage-harassing cops stand in the way of these two slackers as they hopelessly meander through the streets of Austin, Texas trying to buy a case of beer. Their patience and worries are pushed to the limit until they are forced to do the unthinkable. (Yes Superbad people stole the idea, from the same studio, Sony Pictures, where Holdridge was developing a spec script). Read more about this, in the indiewire profile of Alex Holdridge.
Now he comes comes with In Search of a midnight kiss, a more adult film with a bigger budget $ 25,000.
Last Friday I got the chance to meet the Duplass Brothers, after their success with the The Puffy Chair, my natural question was, Are you living out of this? Their answer; Actually yes dude!
Since 2005 they had been working in different projects in development with different studios and they even moved to LA, but after two years writing, pitching, attending to meetings, and actually making money, one thing was worrying them: How much time is going to pass until we do another film? So they repeat his previous formula and they created Baghead, premiered in Sundance in January of 2008 and picked up for North American distribution by Sonny Pictures Classics.
