Meltdown Comics friends Amity and American Cinematheque announce Beyond Fest!

Creative collective Amity and the American Cinematheque announced today that they are partnering to create Beyond Fest, a festival featuring the best in world genre programming, October 13 – 27, 2013 at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood.

Goblin-Poster-01

Dedicated to delivering the elite in horror, sci-fi, fantasy, and badass cinema, Beyond Fest will globally program a diverse and eclectic mix of gala premieres, rare retrospectives, and special events, all of which are anchored in bringing firsts to the community of genre fans in Los Angeles. Beyond Fest’s programming slate launches with the announcement of the first Los Angeles performance of Italian Prog Rock pioneers Goblin, who rose to cult fame through their work with horror maestro Dario Argento.

“We’ve always wanted to bring a world-class genre festival to Los Angeles, so we figured we’d do something about it with Beyond Fest,” said Christian Parkes, principle at Amity. “As fans ourselves we want to create something that is comparable to the very best festivals out there, and partnering with the American Cinematheque allows us to do exactly that: we want to give the film community here direct access to what others are seeing around the world.”

“There are so many great films being produced in every corner of the world, and we want to reflect that when programming Beyond Fest,” said Grant Moninger, American Cinematheque programmer. “By focusing on world cinema, it gives us the opportunity not only to select the very best films out there, but it also allows us to program films that might not be seen in a theater in the US.”

Reflecting Beyond Fest’s  commitment to original and diverse programming is the announcement of Goblin  performing on October 22nd at the Egyptian Theatre. Playing Los Angeles for the first time in their 40 year history, Goblin will perform a full, live set pulled from their most iconic scores, including: Dario Argento’s giallo classics Suspiria, Tenebrae, and Deep Red, and George A. Romero’s seminal Dawn of the Dead. Immediately following Goblin’s performance will be an incredibly rare 35mm screening of Argento’s 1975 masterpiece, Deep Red.

To celebrate Goblin’s first show in Los Angeles, co promoters Death Waltz Records is releasing a tour-exclusive EP featuring four brand new versions of the Goblin classics Suspiria, Tenebrae, Profondo Rosso & Roller. These re-recorded versions by the recently reunited band not only manage to capture the spirit of the original recordings but instill them with an urgency and intensity that is truly representative of their recent live performances. The EP will only be available on the US tour and will be pressed on blood red 180g vinyl featuring exclusively commissioned artwork by legendary poster artist Graham Humphreys (Evil Dead, A Nightmare On Elm Street).

Beyond Fest is also producing a limited edition poster for the event. Designed by Graham Humphreys, the poster will draft off of the artwork featured on the Death Waltz Records EP and is available exclusively at the show.

DnDMelt’s CCDD event is a Charity Fundraiser raising money for the Reach out and Read program here in Los Angeles. 3-4 tables of up to 6 celebrity gamers per table will be playing the same Adventure, choosing from a short list of Characters all written by Celebrity D&D Writer/Gamer: Keith Baker (who will also be DMing one of the 4 tables).

Watch online from the comfort of your own home, our creative cast of Actors, Musicians, Writers, Photographers and Artists play D&D to raise money for Reach out and Read: A charity who’s focus is preparing America’s youngest children to succeed in school by partnering with doctors to prescribe books and encourage families to read together to promote early literacy.

How does the fundraising part of the evening work?

We will be filming the tables and some of which will be live streamed to http://meltcomics.com where viewers can watch the adventure unravel for a minimum donation of $9.95 from 1pm-6pm. (A PayPerView service from http://stickam.com.) Forward friends and fans to http://Meltcomics.com to gain access. People will also be able to purchase a PDF of the adventure to play with their friends for a minimum donation of $15. We will offer incentives for people to donate more! Items from Wizards of the Coast and other Companies TBA.

What exactly is Reach Out and Read?

http://RORLosAngeles.org Reach Out and Read is an evidence-based nonprofit organization that promotes early literacy and school readiness in pediatric exam rooms nationwide by giving new books to children and advice to parents about the importance of reading aloud.

Reach Out and Read builds on the unique relationship between parents and medical providers to develop critical early reading skills in children, beginning at 6 months of age. The 3.8 million families served annually by “Reach Out and Read” read together more often, their children enter kindergarten with larger vocabularies, with stronger language skills, and better prepared to succeed.

Pediatric healthcare providers (including pediatricians, family physicians, and pediatric nurse practitioners) are trained in the three-part Reach Out and Read model to promote early literacy and school readiness:

  • In the exam room, doctors and nurses speak with parents about the importance of reading aloud to their young children every day, and offer age-appropriate tips and encouragement.
  • The pediatric primary care provider gives every child 6 months through 5 years old a new, developmentally-appropriate children’s book to take home and keep.
  • In the waiting room, displays, information, and gently-used books create a literacy-rich environment. Where possible, volunteer readers entertain the children, modeling for parents the pleasures – and techniques – of reading aloud

Thank you very much for your time.

Sincerely,
Satine Phoenix
