Sweet! All of the videos from the 2012 Adrenaline Film Project are live on Vimeo! We had some great films this year and the polish was off the charts considering each team had only 72 hours to make them. Once again a huge thanks to everyone that worked so hard on this event and the participants!
Everybody be sure to stop by the Cinema Studies second “Film on Film” Event….
First off will be a screening of “City of Sadness at the Bijou on 35mm. This will be FREE to everyone who presents student ID. Happening Thursday, May 3rd at 6PM. This is a one-time showing so don’t miss it!
The second screening will be a double feature, FREE to everyone. The first film will be an animated short called “Flashpoint”. It’s a Canadian PSA of sorts about oil spills. Surprisingly vulgar and absolutely hilarious considering it was sponsored by the Canadian Government.
The second part of the double feature will be Orson Welle’s classic, “Touch of Evil”. If you haven’t heard of this one then why are you a Cinema Studies student???? Just kidding, but seriously this is like one of the greatest movies of all time, and getting to see it on 16mm is awesome. If you like film noir and wanna see some great examples of revolutionary film technique being developed in the 50’s, “Touch of Evil” is def one to check out.
These two will be screened in PLC 180 on Friday, May 18th at 7PM. Free popcorn and candy included.
University of Oregon Cinema Studies has partnered once again with the Bijou Art Cinemas to present the second Film on Film event: The Border Crossing Series. The Film on Film series features movies created and screened in 16 mm and 35mm film. This series is FREE and open to the public.
Daisuke Miyao, Associate Professor with the University of Oregon Cinema Studies program, states, “Cinema has told so many stories of people crossing national borders. Cinema has also crossed other kinds of borders between fantasy and reality; stillness and motion; past, present and future; analog and digital, to name a few. The focus of ‘Film on Film’ is the innate nature of cinema as a border-crossing medium.”
Lesli Larson, University of Oregon Image Services Coordinator at the UO Library, states, “Projected film images bring people together in a very unique way. The projected film image has a robustness, an aura, that cannot be matched by its plasma screen TV surrogate. We want to reintroduce UO students — and the Eugene community — to that very unique viewing experience.”
The first Film on Film screening of this series will be held Thursday, May 3rd at 6:00 pm at the Bijou Art Cinemas in Eugene. This screening features the 1989 film, “A City of Sadness”, directed by Hou Hsiao- Hsein and will be introduced by Yale University Professor Dudley Andrew. Professor Andrew helped to bring A City of Sadness to Eugene as part of the 2012 Taiwan Cinema College Showcase. Professor Andrew will also present his talk, Off the Grid, Into the Land: Cinema as Geology, during the Cinema Studies Scholar Viewpoint Series on Friday, May 4th at 2 pm in Lawrence 115 on the University of Oregon campus.
The second Film on Film screening will be held Friday, May 18th at the University of Oregon Prince Lucien Campbell Hall 180 (PLC 180) at 7:00 pm. This screening is a double feature, featuring the 1958 film, “Touch of Evil”, directed by Orson Welles and the 1977 animated film, “Flashpoint”, directed by Ernie Schmidt.
Well the Adrenaline Film Project is all wrapped up and there were some phenomenal entries this year. Every film was excellent, and the ones that won…..were kind of jaw dropping considering that they were done in 72 hours. It’s great to see such an outpour of support from the community! PROPS to the participants and everyone who made this event happen!
Awwww yeaaah. Tonight at 9:30 will be the official screening for the Adrenaline Film Project. Hosted by Jeff Wadlow, Omar Naim and Leigh Kilton-Smith at The Shedd Institute. You probably know what the project is all about by now. Groups are assigned a genre and given a line of dialogue and prop to be incorporated into a production. For the last 72 hours they have pitched, written, shot and edited their films. Tonight we’ll get to see all of their hard work on the big screen.
The assembled crowd will vote for an Audience Award and learn the winner of the Kalb Jury Award. Afterwards there will be an after-party featuring refreshments and music in the Shedd’s Great Hall! Hope to see you there. Tix are $10 for adults and $8 for students and seniors.

1) “A City of Sadness” at Bijou Art Cinemas: Thursday May 3, 6PM, FREE

Great news! The Bijou and The Cultural Forum are hosting an advance screening of “Jeff Who Lives at Home”, starring Jason Segel and Ed Helms. It’ll be at The Bijou this Tuesday, March 13th. I LOOOOOVE this. The trailers look good and Jason Segel is one of my favs. It’s directed by the same guy who did “Cyrus”, an awkwardly funny comedy about mother/son relationships with John C. Reilly, Jonah Hill and Marisa Tomei. FREE FOR STUDENTS WITH THEIR ID!!!! Don’t miss it!!

“FILM ON FILM” IN THREE DAYS! - This Friday, Feb. 24th will be a special double screening of two fabulous 16mm films in PLC 180 at 7PM. It’s FREE, and there’s gonna be POPCORN! But seriously, seeing these films on film with a group of other people will be great! We’re trying to re-ignite interest in viewing 16mm and 35mm features in public settings while creating an awareness of how important it is to preserve the medium for generations to come.
First up will be “Dance Little Children”, a short sex-ed film about a syphilis outbreak in New Jersey. It’s a fantastic window into the past and hilarious to watch. Following immediately after will be Billy Wilder’s 1944 feature, “Double Indemnity”. If you haven’t seen this…..I suggest you do……this Friday…..at 7PM….in PLC 180. It’s a freakin’ classic and getting to view it on a big screen makes it all the better.
Once again this event is FREE to the public. We will also provide listening devices for members of the audience that need hearing assistance. So bring a friend or loved one and experience “Film on Film”!
