Raw Impressions, Inc. will produce six short films for the sixth installment of its RIPFest Film Festival. All films will be movie musicals and will be shown in New York on Monday May 23 & 24 at 8PM & 9:30PM at the Anthology Film Archives (32 Second Ave. at 2nd Street) and in LA on May 23 (only) at 7:30 & 10:00pm at Laemmle Monica 4.
RIPFest is a guerrilla filmmaking process wherein professional filmmakers who have never worked together are given sixteen days to collaborate on and create original ten-minute works from scratch. A theme will be announced to the writers (and press) on May 7. Raw Impressions, winner of the 2004 Larson Award for Artistic Vision in Music Theatre is the only non-profit company in the world to have a regular program designed to create Movie Musicals. For RIPFest #6, half the films will be created in NY the other half in LA. All films will be shown on both coasts at each screening.
