FLA scores a STIFFY for Best Narrative Short at the 2013 Seattle True Independent Film Festival. Many thanks to Tim Vernor and Will Chase for rocking and rolling a terrific party and showcase of films.
Screening at STIFF, 2013. Find me naked and errant in the back of the Grand Illusion Cinema in the U-District every day this week. Come say hello.
Awesome interventionist performances by my Advanced DTC students at Washington State University. And more to come @ Vimeo #peter christenson made me do this—can’t get into legal trouble if it’s a class assignment, right? :) Screenshot examples: the glorious Zach exhibiting WalmART at Walmart, and the blissfully errant Laura dancing and dancing and dancing, and the formidable Jacob pledging (and questioning) serious allegiance, and the super Merlin buying her own “Human Juice,” and the awesome tree-hugger Megan, well, hugging for an eternity, and the amazingly electric Ashley on an endless quest for toast (and attention)! So proud of this class!
Thanks to the TC creatives and generous souls who joined us last Saturday for the Puncture Vine Magazine release and party exhibition. And big hugs to Roxy for hosting. I spent a good portion of Sunday morning with Kat recovering from our mini-dance party. Drop me a line if you want a copy.
Very grateful to get invited to screen my filmino in Baltimore this weekend at Johns Hopkins University. They’re also showing Danny Boyle’s Sunshine—one of my favorite films of all time. Seriously. Not sure what that says about me.
Coding a prototype website for my new magazine Puncture Vine founded with Nick Napoli. Release party 4-20-13 at 7:00pm Roxy Wine Bar in Kennewick, WA. We’ll have zine copies and prints and weird objects for sale. Time to get freaky. More details here and here(peter christenson).
Showing at Portland’s Clinton Street Theater (built in 1914) this weekend. Awesome spot. Many thanks to Mike & the organizers of the Faux Fest. Looking forward to a great lineup of mayhem.
Invited to screen my film Fuck Lance Armstrong at the 2013 Carolina Film Festival Saturday evening 2/23/13. Festival is running from February 20-23, 2013. For over thirty years, CFVF has strived not only to give emerging and independent filmmakers their first break but has also enriched the UNCG and Greensboro communities with great films not otherwise available.
Very pleased to have an excerpt from my audio installation & performance “Vast Sublimation” included in this year’s Strange Beauty Film Fest’s Aural Fixation Listening Block. Audio pieces were selected by the great Jennifer Deer and will be playing this weekend January 24-26 at Manbites Dog Theater in Durham, NC. Looks like a terrific lineup of film and sound pieces. 2013, Peter Christenson.
Peter Christenson reports: “Oprah gets paid while Armstrong admits to doping.” More here @ Fuck Lance Armstrong Campaign?
