May the Fan (and Clive) Be With You

May 6, 2008

From Clive’s blog, “I’m hosting a free mini-Star Wars fan film festival on Wednesday, May 7th from 7:30 PM to 9:00 PM at the Croton Free Library, so if you love fan productions and you live in Westchester, c’mon down!”

Details: May The Fan Film Be With You will show and discuss some of the best Star Wars fan films ever made. Most people have only seen these movies on the internet, but this program presents them the way they were meant to be seen—in full-quality on a big screen. Films to be shown include: Hardware Wars; Troops; George Lucas In Love; Duality; Pink Five; Beagle and many more.

Besides showing movies, the program will discuss the history of the growing fan film movement and explore what compels filmmakers to invest so much effort into their personal visions of the Star Wars mythology. All material screened will be appropriate for the whole family, but the discussion will be aimed primarily at adults and young adults. The program will run about 90 minutes.

Host: Clive Young is the author of the upcoming Homemade Hollywood: Fans Behind The Camera (Continuum; September, 2008), the first book about the secret history and surprising future of the Fan Film movement. He also edits the fan film blog,
