If I were going to be in town this weekend I would definitely try to get my ass out of bed in time to see Able Edwards at the MiniDV Festival in Hollywood on Saturday. Ifín I got my facts straight, this festival is in its second year and shows shorts and features produced exclusively on miniDV (the standard consumer digital video format). Considering the hardly limiting criteria and the sheer number of ìfilmsî screening, this fest promises to be like a box of chocolates with a few little pieces of shit mixed in to keep you guessing. Able Edwards is one reliable offering, and I regret not being in town to check it out.
The festival runs Friday through Sunday at Raleigh Studios in Hollywood.
