9 February 2017 1:00 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Keep up with the always-hopping film festival world with our weekly Film Festival Roundup column. Check out last week’s Roundup right here.

New Initiatives

– Exclusive: For its 2017 edition, the True/False Film Fest is partnering with Kickstarter to expand its staff childcare initiative to include visiting filmmakers, artists, and musicians. True/False will provide free, professional daycare during the four-day weekend of the Fest in order to make the festival more accessible to artists with young children.

Through this initiative, True/False and Kickstarter seek to support the real, current needs of low-income and single parents, as well as model possibilities for other festivals on how to be more feminist and equitable. With the support of Kickstarter, True/False hopes to offset the cost of expensive child care and help parents give birth to their films, build essential industry relationships and remember why documentary filmmaking is an urgent art. »

Interview: Scott Freiman on ‘Deconstructing the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper Album’

4 February 2017 7:29 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Scott Freiman is an entrepreneur, producer, composer and musicologist, and turned his primary passion – painstakingly delving into the song production techniques of The Beatles – into a series of lectures called “Deconstructing The Beatles.” He has turned those lectures into films, and “Deconstructing The Beatles Sgt. Pepper Album” will screen in Chicago at area Landmark Cinemas on February 6th, 2017.

The 50th anniversary of the release of the album “Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band” will be June 1st, 1967, and the record marked a crossover of sorts for the Fab Four, from the mop-top image of their early career to the introspective studio musicians in the second half of their collaboration. John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr had just finished their last live show in August of 1966, and launched Sgt. Pepper amid rumors that they were finished as a band. “Pepper” was universally popular, and was the number one album in the U. »

Episode 5 of American Doers, a new 12-part video series featuring original thinkers, innovators, craftspeople, risk-takers and artisans across the United States.

When Shamayim Harris of Highland Park, Michigan, began rebuilding a half-abandoned nearby block into a sustainable eco-village, she inspired her entire community. And no one was more moved into action than her son Chinyelu.
