Cinedelphia readers know that we would usually be the first to reveal the identity of the secret film that will be screened for FREE at the Piazza this Thursday night (7/14) @ 7:30 PM, but we thought it would be fun to play along with the ad agency that has partnered with Awesome Fest in an effort to give their films a creative public push. Also, the film in this case is something that will definitely appeal to readers of this site…I only mention these things to assure you that we will not start posting about the new Transformers 3 iPhone app or the hundreds of other things that you see pop up on less sophisticated film blogs. And with that said, here’s a clue to the identity of the secret film. And for further clues, visit Philebrity, Buzzbo Philly, Cinedork (I shudder at that name), and, of course, the Awesome Fest’s site.
Once you learn of the film’s identity, you’ll probably wonder why it was kept a secret. The obvious answer would be to avoid people bringing their video cameras to the outdoor Piazza venue in order to shoot illegal copies of the film, not that this is the type of film that will appeal to the bootleg vendors on Market Street. Another explanation that I heard is that there is a crazy person related to the film who has been traveling around to all of its advance screenings and causing a ruckus, which, if true, I would love to hear more about. In any case, don’t say that Cinedelphia recommended you to attend the screening as we won’t be held responsible if you’re disappointed. We’ll definitely be there though.
