The return of the Philly F/M Festival will surely elicit just as many groans as it does clueless “huh’s?”. For those few who were aware of its overly ambitious presence last fall, take a step back from the disasters you experienced and check out the festival’s much more reasonably programmed (film-wise, at least) slate scheduled for September 22 – 25. Their nine film program, which will be held at the Invincible Pictures Sound Stages (with a reported capacity of 1,000), is entirely comprised of esoteric music documentaries. Here are the films/subjects:
Beatboxing: The 5th Element of Hip Hop: Beatboxing.
Better Than Something: Jay Reatard.
Bob and the Monster: Bob Forrest.
Broke: Music industry.
Color Me Obsessed: The Replacements.
Echotone: Austin-based musicians.
Freaks In Love: Alice Donut.
Meet Me On South Street: JC Dobbs (as seen at PIFF).
Sound It Out: Record shop in England.
They have a theme and they’re sticking to it.
