Last October, Sherwin Akbarzadeh’s experimental film “I Had A Dream I Went to Coney Island” came all the way from Australia to premiere in Brooklyn at the 2009 Coney Island Film Festival. Now this evocative eight millimeter movie is up on YouTube as a submission for Berlin’s Road Junky Film Festival. You’ll catch a glimpse of the stars shining on Astroland’s vanished Surf Ave. Gate at 2:20…
The Road Junky Travel Film Festival is offering 1500 euros in prizes for five minute films that change the way we see the world. On May 28, travelers and film makers will converge in Berlin to screen their documentaries and stream them live over the internet as they’re shown. Submission deadline: April 10, 2010.
