3rd Annual ATA Film and Video Festival starts tomorrow in SF

Artists’ Television Access celebrates independent and underground film with the 3rd ATA Film and Video Festival on October 2, 3 & 4, 2008. On Thursday, October 2, the festival opens with Craig Baldwin’s latest feature, Mock Up On Mu. Don’t miss the intro act by Mu-vie star, Stoney Burke as John McTaint (think McCain). On Friday and Saturday, October 3 & 4, the festival will showcase 20 short films that run the cinematic gamut – from former SF rocker Jibz Cameron’s mercurial “The Quiet Storm” and the controversial “Visions of Wasted Time,” by Neil Ira Needleman, to the gorgeous flicker of Paul Clipson’s “Sphinx on the Seine” and Telemach Wiesinger’s “3x1.” In addition to the screenings, the work of 11 experimental film and video artists will be displayed as installations throughout the gallery during the festival and in the ATA Window in October. ATA is at 992 Valencia at 21st Street. Doors open at 7:30pm every night. Screenings start at 8pm. Tickets are $10.
