It's that time of year again! The weather is cooler. People are talking about the Academy Awards and who got picked up at Sundance. We wonder when can we start leaving our jacket at home (answer: never). And its also IndieFest time!

Two weeks of far out, exciting, adventurous, unpredictable cinema at your home for that kind of thing - The Roxie Theater. You’ll be surprised to learn there are some parties happening at the Festival this year. And some of the biggest ones are right here at the Roxie. On Sat Feb 9 the 10th Annual BIG LEBOWSKI PARTY takes place right around the corner at 518 Valencia and is capped off by a 35mm presentation of the Coen Brothers’ classic at midnight, preceded by a costume contest on stage, of course. IndieFest’s Anti-Valentines Day party returns on Thu Feb 14 with what is now an annual tradition: LOVE BITES: POWER BALLAD SING A LONG, where you are invited to scream your lungs out to the best worst best songs in rock n roll. And theres the films. Over 40 programs of new amazing films like DAYS OF GRACE, a poetic and violent film about drugs and kidnapping from Mexico. From Italy there is THE LEGEND OF KASPAR HAUSER featuring Vincent Gallo in dual rolls in a film that mixes “tropes from desert westerns, Jodorowsky and Buñuelian slapstick surrealism, Antonioni and Roeg-esque speculative sci-fi, and all the best trappings of Buster Keaton and William Burroughs.”
Theres some documentaries like ICEBERG SLIM: PORTRAIT OF A PIMP and THE LIFE AND TIMES OF PAUL THE PSYCHIC OCTOPUS that sound intriguing just by their titles. Plus a couple of early 70s films featured in festival programmer Kier-la Janisse’s new book THE HOUSE OF PSYCHOTIC WOMEN, an autobiographical exploration of female neurosis in horror and exploitation films. And, need it be said, MUCH MUCH MORE!
