Hey you ... yeah, YOU buddy, reading this right now. The indie pop band Efterklang from Denmark wants you to host a screening of their movie The Ghost of Piramida. It's a great film, it was chosen as one the three best music films of the years at the acclaimed IDFA Film Festival in Amsterdam annd portrays the band on a trip into the ghost town Piramida on Spitsbergen. It's by the North Pole and is a documentary of Efterklang gathering sounds on an "audio treasure hunt" as it was put together and edited by director Andreas Koefoed.
The band is on a push to get the film working around the globe, and they're opting for a grass roots approach by asking people to host private screenings of the film. The only requirements are that its free, public, have at least 5 people and not be for commercial use ... meaning you can't make money from it.
Or, as Efterklang puts it "In other words, as long as the host is a private person, entrance is free and it is an open event (as capacity permits) the Private-Public Screenings can take place at a home, at a café, in a school auditorium - basically, anywhere. Those planning to host screenings in their own homes will be able to have full control over who can attend."
