ALL TOMORROW'S PARTIES

UK, 2009 (MIFF 2009, Backbeat)

“[A] modern-day mash-up of throbbing tom-toms and Woodstocky multiscreen mayhem.” - Austin Chronicle

This fast-paced bricolage celebrates the 10th anniversary of All Tomorrow's Parties, the cult music festival founded by Barry Hogan. Curated by a different band or artist each year, the festival is a place where artists, organisers and fans can immerse themselves in a commune of indie-rock, free from the distraction of corporate sponsorship.

Created using hundreds of pieces of footage shot by musicians and fans on Super 8 cameras, camcorders and mobile phones over the last decade, All Tomorrow's Parties features a mashed-up style of assembly similar to director Jonathan Caouette's debut Tarnation. In keeping with the collaborative spirit of the festival, the resulting film is as much ultimate mix-tape as it is a stamp of collective memory.
