In recent years, one has needed to look no further than the NEXT <=> section of the Sundance Film Festival to witness films with a penchant for innovative storytelling and a blatant disregard for boundaries. Now, that renegade filmmaking spirit is coming to Los Angeles in the form of four-day NEXT WEEKEND film festival, Aug. 8-11, 2013. http://www.sundance.org/next
"This is Martin Bonner " written & directed by Chad Hartigan. I missed this at Sundace. I am a big believer in big life changes and that is subject of this film. It's been winning prizes everywhere it goes and it was made for $42K according to IMDB. I am a big believer in the opening of subject matter & filmmakers that the low budget realm brings. Available digitally Aug 20.

This one via @Women and Hollywood "Hannah Fidell's 'A Teacher' was a favorite at SXSW where Fidell won the Emergent Narrative Women Director Award at the festival. A new trailer for Fidell's taut and unflinching film, follows Diana (Lindsay Burdge) a young high school teacher who embarks on a illicit affair with her student (Will Brittain). A Teacher hits U.S. theaters on September 6th. It'll be available on VOD on August 20th." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aGu-MPqqFr4
