PRESS RELEASE:

Indie Grits Kicks Off Film Submission Season With a September Side of Grits


Columbia, S.C. (August 12, 2011) – Following a successful Indie Grits 2011, where attendance doubled over 2010’s event, festival planners announce plans to kick off the 2012 submission season with a one-night Indie Grits event at 5 Points Pub (2020 Devine Street) on Sunday, September 18, 2012 from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m. featuring a film performance by Roger Beebe.

For five years, Indie Grits, hosted by the Nickelodeon Theatre, has empowered all levels of Southern filmmakers with an independent mentality and far-reaching artistic scope, and festival organizers have invited Roger Beebe, an experimental filmmaker from Gainesville, Florida to participate in the event. Beebe will show a film performance that utilizes a variety of formats from Super 8 to 16mm to digital media, which he often uses in the same performance.

“In addition to the films, Indie Grits has grown to include the best music, food and craft Columbia has to offer, and this year, we’re excited that our festival will expand to nine days,” said Andy Smith, Executive Director of the Nickelodeon Theatre. “Because the festival is really gaining momentum all the time, our event with Roger Beebe to kick off our Indie Grits 2012 film submission season is something we’re really looking forward to bringing Columbia film lovers and Indie Grits fans alike.”

Like Indie Grits 2012, which is scheduled for April 20 – 29, the September 18 event will also feature music, crafts and potluck dishes. This event will also feature a performance by local puppeteer Lyon Hill.

Tickets, which are $15, $10 for Nickelodeon members are available at www.indiegrits.com and www.nickelodeon.org. Everyone in attendance will be entered into a drawing for a free 2012 Indie Grits Festival Pass. Follow the Nickelodeon on Facebook and on Twitter @nicktheatre.
