Alamo Drafthouse Launches the Girlest Festival EVER
9/26/2013 12:06:00 PM
The fine folks at The Alamo Drafthouse have announced a kickstarter for Forever Fest, a celebration of girlie pop culture that's got my name all over it. For the first time ever, fans of female-centric films, books and TV will have a festival where they can come together and revel in their obsessions without shame. Forever Fest will be held primarily at the renowned Alamo Drafthouse Ritz on November 1st - 3rd in Austin, Texas. Check out the Kickstarter here.
If you're a lady who loves DIRTY DANCING, or a woman who's seen SIXTEEN CANDLES a thousand times, or a guy who can't stop quoting CLUELESS, welcome to the weekend of your dreams. Forever Fest is guaranteed to be more thrilling than your first kiss, more fun than your first co-ed party and more memorable than your senior year. It's a festival that welcomes your inner teen while appreciating the fact that some things, like movies and people, just get better with age.
Here's a list of some of the planned events for the fest, which all sound pretty awesome:
Danceoke: Your favorite cinematic dance routines performed live on stage while the scene plays on the big screen.
EMPIRE RECORDS screening with star Ethan Embry in attendance, followed by a Rex Manning Day party.
The Cute Show: an adorable clip show presented by BuzzFeed and guaranteed to make you squee.
Book talk with Jessica Morgan and Heather Cocks, creators of Go Fug Yourself and authors of Spoiled and Messy.
CAN'T HARDLY WAIT screening with star Ethan Embry in attendance
SIXTEEN CANDLES screening with select talent in attendance followed by the ultimate '80s high school dance.
The Wild Brunch: A mimosa-fueled salute to the hottest men in cinema.
Forever Fest is brought to you by Sarah Pitre (the mastermind behind the Girlie Night screenings) and Fons PR's Brandy Fons.
