i've added/subtracted a bit here and there. i've removed reference to the
bar and cafe 'cos this is something that SIF would not like advertised.
erm, we need to confirm with the VJ's that they want to come. i found
another one in sheffield - they did the 'Umm & Ahh' thing at The Showroom
last Thursday - who might be interested.
i tried to give directions to SIF without advertising Peppermint Wino or
whatever that place is called.
we should mention the directors names who are coming to speak - so they've

Sheffield Indymedia presents.................
12th-14th November 2004
3 days of films from the frontlines of the DIY fight against the
mainstream and the boring capitalist system!
....Political and social commentary, satire, agitprop, direct action,
Sheffield Independent Film,

(opposite that strip club on Brown St)
donations on the door will be appreciated

full programme details and screening times will be posted soon
Films showing will include:
"XXI Century": we're screening this epic documentary in seven one-hour
episodes over the weekend. This will be the film's premiere in Sheffield
and the directors - Gabriele Zamparini and Lorenzo Meccoli - will be here
to present their work. http://www.TheCatsDream.com
4th World War - an awesome film that brings together the inspiring images
and the poetry of worldwide social struggles against neoliberalism. It
keenly shows a system that is increasingly dependent on violence and the
so-called "war on terror" in order to sustain its world order.
Kilometer Zero - Cancun anti-capitalist action against the 2003 WTO summit
In Whose interest - a powerful overview examining the effect of US foreign
policy on the lives of people in Central America, Southeast Asia, the
Middle East - David Kaplowitz, the director, will be in Sheffield to talk
about this documentary and we will be showing two more of his film shorts.
Unprecedented: The 2000 Presidential Election - is the riveting story
about how Dubya stole the 2000 US Presidential Election. Given the
controversy surrounding the 2004 election this film will be a timely
reminder of the fiasco of the last!
Genoa Red Zone - a hard-hitting film presenting the real story of the the
bloody anti-G8 demonstrations that happened in Genoa in 2001. Eight
months in the making with a cast of thousands this hour-long documentary
does not shy from the truth.
Outfoxed - Rupert Murdoch's Fox news, as we all suspect, were found to be
writing the news, not reporting it! This film reveals the secrets of
former Fox employees as they talk about how they were forced to push a
"right wing" point of view or risk their jobs. More info on this doc at
Chlorine - a bad ass skate documentary featuring all the old punk
skateboarders checking out places to skate pools, posing as cleaners,
avoiding police, whatever... to get access to pools and reclaim space in
their urban landscape for skating. Features Lance Mountain, Duane Peters,
Steve Olson, Tony Alva and lots more.
Plus lots of shorts/direct action films - such as the Fairford film where
an anti-war activists coach gets hijacked by the police; DSEi, action
against the arms fair in London; back by popular demand - Crowd Bites
Wolf - screened in Sheffield at the Lost Film Fest last November, Pie's
the Limit - a cornucopia of political pie throwings; The Price of Tea - a
film by two Sheffield Indymedia volunteers visiting India.
Also some VJ-ing by media activists from Sheffield and the UK.
