Undiscovered Gems

Via Agnes, information about Undiscovered Gems, a new film series sponsored by IndieWIRE, Emerging Pictures and the New York Times. The goal of the series is to present the films at screenings around the country and have audiences vote on their favorite films. The prize for the winning film: a distribution deal with Emerging Pictures. One of the participating venues is the Galaxy Theater in Cary, NC, just outside of Raleigh.

Some of the films in competition include Jem Cohen’s Chain (one of my favorite films in recent memory), the Duplass Brothers’ The Puffy Chair (another recent fave), and this month’s selection is Andrew Bujalski’s Mutual Appreciation, which I’ve been wanting to see for a while. If you’re in the neighborhood of one of the participating venues, this series looks like it would be well worth supporting.

    It’s kind of funny but the 1st time I read your post it made no sense to me only because I thought the film series was on Undiscovered Germs.

    YIKES! Now that’d be a disgusting little series, I wouldn’t go to any venue to see such nasty bacteria infested locations.

    Somehow that reminds me of the Seinfeld episode in which we learn that Elaine’s boyfriend Puddy is a germophobe, but then eveything reminds me of Seinfeld.

    I, too, have enough to worry about without learning about even more “undiscovered germs.” Now I’m not going to be able to sleep tonight….
