The fourth season of TvFILM is set to invade your living rooms on Sunday, June 24th at 10:30pm! No, it’s not going to interrupt Downton Abbey, relax.
But there is a real concern with this upcoming fourth season. In the world of cinema what fourth film in a series was any good? Think about it- you have Rocky 4, Lethal Weapon 4, and The Phantom Menace? (It was the fourth Star Wars film.) You’re right, those are not independent films but realistically indie filmmakers are lucky to make one film let alone a sequel, minus Kevin Smith.
OK, so back to part fours, there has to be at least one good one? Need to brainstorm - Alien 4, Jaws: The Revenge (my personal favorite), all those bad 80’s horror films, Godfather part 4(OK, they never made this one, just seeing if you were paying attention), Rambo 4 but just titled Rambo, Indiana Jones 4…..
Wait! TvFILM has had three successful seasons of showcasing amazing, independent, regionally-made short films! The Capital Region is truly the anomaly of great independent film and media. We’ve got nothing to worry about, but I’ll plug our call for entries anyway (please send us your short films by 5/18). Sorry for the panic attack! Here’s to another successful season!
