Second Filmmakers Spotlight Dec. 9 at Baltimore's Landmark Theater

Filmmakers SpotlightJoin Flying Dog for our second Filmmakers Spotlight Dec. 9 at Baltimore's Landmark Theater.

The feature presentation is Todd P Goes to Austin. Directed by Jay Buim, the film is a cultural snap-shot of America’s underground, do-it-yourself music scene. It follows the footsteps of DIY rock promoter Todd Patrick and features unforgettable live performances from Baltimore-rooted artists like Dan Deacon and The Death Set.

Using never-before-seen footage, including material shot by the bands themselves, the film exposes what life is like surviving and touring at the underground level. Interviews with Todd about the necessity of independent music connect the bands as they tour en route to Austin, TX to appear in the DIY music scene's answer to the SXSW Music Festival.

The night will begin with a few short screenings by local filmmaker Hilton Carter. Carter, a graduate of Maryland Institute College of Art and an award winning director, has personally been instrumental in helping build Baltimore's young and growing filmmaking community.

Local DJ Hip Hop Dan will spin during intermissions and (naturally) Flying Dog beer will be served in the theater. Tickets are $10 and can only be purchased at the door. Doors open at 7 pm.

After the show, head over to The Talking Head for the official after party - featuring DJ sets from Jay Buim, DJ Pancake, and Hip Hop Dan and Flying Dog beer specials. Admission is free, but the event is 21 and older.
