KLUNKERZ at Hollywood and Vine!

June 6th, 2007

Just recieved the following from Billy Savage, the man behind Klunkerz -

I’m setting up for the Hollywood screening of KLUNKERZ at the 600 seat Vine Street Theater on Saturday, June 30th at 5:00pm near the corner of Hollywood and Vine. The screening is in conjunction with The Bicycle Film Festival (see below) and it should be quite a gas. Gary Fisher, and other members of the cast, will be in attendance. As you may know, the film was nominated for Best Documentary and Emerging Filmmaker awards at the X-dance Awards, and it won Best Documentary at The Durango Independent Film Festival. The Bicycle Film Festival is an truly an amazing event. The festival’s founder, Brendt Barbour, is a fantastic guy with quite a story. He was a messenger in NYC and was hit by a bus while riding and nearly killed. During his recovery he came up with the idea of The Bicycle Film Festival to increase awareness of bicycles on public roads. You can find out more about him, and the festival, at his website www.bicyclefilmfestival.com. You can also find out more about my film at www.klunkerz.com.
