Every summer, the Nevada City Film Festival makes art into a party, bringing award-winning shorts and feature films to the historic venues of Nevada City, CA. A four-day celebration of art, music, and independent filmmaking, this year’s fest includes a live performance by writer and comedian Marc Maron (host of the critically acclaimed podcast “WTF with Marc Maron”), feature-length films such as “Listen Up Philip” starring Elisabeth Moss and Jason Schwartzman and Patrick Brice’s “Creep,” and an excellent sampling of award-winning shorts from around the world. Mark your calendars for September 4th-7th.
The festival will also feature world-renowned performance artist Miwa Matreyek during First Friday Art Walk, a free screening of the documentary “The Bird Who Flew Alone” about Gene Clark of the Byrds, workshops on how to create a successful comedy series and shooting and editing with GoPro, a special presentation of the 1968 Steve McQueen film “Bullitt”, children’s shorts, filmmaker Q&As, after parties, and more. Check out the Nevada City Film Festival facebook page to keep up to date, Golden Shoulders was just added to the opening night after party.
The Outside Inn’s blog is excited to offer up one free festival pass, post a comment on this blog post and I’ll announce the winner on Friday, August 29th. And if you’re interested in the live comedy show, the special event tickets are available here, act fast as it’s going to sell out. Many thanks to Kat Alves and Simon Weller for some additional photos from last year’s event, what’s your favorite part about the annual event?
