April Fool: delicatrocities returns to the Victoria Theatre &

The Victoria Theatre is up and running again after two months of darkness, and delicatrocities will be there to celebrate with a modest selection of tricky treats on April 1, 2012:  Honey Crack’d Corn & an assortment of cookies.

Of late there have also been sightings at select SF Cinematheque and Other Cinema screenings at Artists’ Television Access in San Francisco’s Mission District, so check here or on Twitter for last-minute updates. The email list is currently on hold pending further revision.

& some new delicatrocities are in the works, so stay tuned!

In other, more crucial news, SF Cinematheque is ramping up for their annual Crossroads film festival, featuring recent and rediscovered experimental and avant-garde films and videos. This type of festival is a rarity on the West Coast, and it needs your help, as it is only in its third year, and most people have yet to catch on. The festival will feature amazing work from a wide variety of national and international filmmakers, including Basque filmmaker Laida Lertxundi, whose work is screening at the Whitney Biennial this week, and British film performance and installation artist Greg Pope, direct from his home in Norway. Further updates and teasers to be announced, so please help make this festival the best it can be by contributing to its Kickstarter campaign (only 9 days left and so far to go…):

That’s it for now…see you in the trenches.

thanks & Other Cinema Benefit Celebration this Saturday!

Thanks to everyone who came out to the Lab’s Holiday Art Sale last weekend; your support is greatly appreciated. Thanks also to all the delicatrocities elves who helped out…couldn’t do it without you!

NOW, for round two!

This Saturday, December 17th, is the OTHER CINEMA BENEFIT CELEBRATION at Artists’ Television Access Gallery. Like the Lab, Other Cinema has been around for about 27 years! It continues to be a bastion of underground and marginalized cinema; unparalleled in its inventive and cutting-edge programming from luminary Craig Baldwin, in addition to providing a much-needed oasis and lab for burgeoning filmmakers and film enthusiasts. There really is no place quite like it, and it needs to be celebrated and supported!!

delicatrocities will be on hand to supplement the festivities, with the majority of proceeds going to support Other Cinema and its Spring 2012 season. If you would like to reserve any items, or place an order in advance, please don’t hesitate to email: delicatrocities@

There will be a few alterations, and additions to the current Holiday Menu…stay tuned!

delicatrocities will also be on hand at the Victoria Theatre this Thursday through Saturday, whereupon I will madly rush over to the Other Cinema benefit…

CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS! If you would like to support Other Cinema with your assistance, I am looking for a volunteer to help with the delicatrocities effort, from 6:30pm-10pm on Saturday. You will be rewarded!

So please come out and show your support, and if you can’t make it, I encourage you to donate via their Kickstarter campaign.

Here’s the details:

On Sat. December 17th, ATA Gallery hosts a benefit celebration for its flagship programming project, Other Cinema. Grounding the gallery’s media arts exhibitions for some 27 years, OC will be feted by such long-standing collaborators as Anne McGuire & Wobbly, once again joining forces as the vocalist/electronics duo Freddy McGuire; Kerry Laitala & John Davis’ live-cinema phantasmagoria; Greta Snider’s new black and white experiment; Bryan Boyce’s hilarious video wizardry; Bill Daniel’s historic S8 bike messenger jamboree; Jeffrey Skoller’s tell-all tabloid on Baldwin in his younger days; Jesse Drew’s media surprise; Archimedia’s duet; Goldwave’s ever-awesome opticals over Blackmonk’s groovy tunes; and others. Friends, fans, and followers are encouraged to demonstrate their support, and have a jolly good time doing it, with delicious atrocities from delicatrocities!

Please also pledge your support for the Other Cinema Kickstarter campaign, for lots of great art prizes. New rewards are pending, so keep an eye out!

Showtime is 9PM. Admission is sliding-scale, from $6.66 to $99.99.
