So we are in week two of the bavatuesdays film festival. I had a blast doing the first show on Black Sunday (1960) with Paul Bond, and I am preparing for round two this Tuesday at 2:30 PM on Hercules in the Haunted World (1961). You can watch this film on Netflix, or find an even better version on YouTube (thanks Paul Bond!). I finally took time to get the festival site up and running: http://festival.bavatuesdays.com/
The site is a basic spaces for aggregating people’s posts (drop off your link in the sidebar), submit via the fuckyeahmariobava tumblr, the #bavatuesdays hashtag, etc. You can find more information on ways to submit to the festiva here.
More than anything, though, this class is a space to push myself to blog about Mario Bava, make animated GIFs, think about film, continue to experiment with live streaming video, and to prepare for two classes I’ll be part of over the next six months. That said, this is NOT A COURSE, but rather a festival. So do what you do. Check out Mario Bava’s films if you are so inclined, and don’t sweat the details.
