Brainwash Drive-In/Bike-In/Walk-In Movie Festival

Come one, come all, to the 14th Annual Brainwash Drive-In/Bike-In/Walk-In Movie Festival, featuring original shorts from around the world!

The 2008 14th Annual Brainwash Movie Festival takes place Fri. & Sat., July 25th and 26th at 9:00 p.m. each night at Mandela Village Arts Center,
1357 5th St., Oakland, California, USA.

The New York Times says the SF Bay Area's own Drive-In/Bike-In/Walk In movie festival, the Brainwash Movie Festival, "pirat a piece of that old Hollywood magic and challeng conventions on the role of public space in the process."

The sometimes thought-provoking, sometimes wacky, but always original Brainwash Movie Festival returns in the summer of 2008 for a slightly darker, perhaps more macabre engagement than in previous years.

Attendees to the festival are encouraged to either drive, bike, walk, or take public transit to the venue -- a parking lot near the West Oakland BART station -- where movies are screened in traditional drive-in movie theater fashion, complete with FM transmission and a full-service concession stand.
And ongoing this year, on Stage II, for your edification and viewing enjoyment, Hologlyphics will be showing Volumetric Movies, 3D video with holographic properties, seen without special glasses -

The short movies screening this year are as follow (with descriptions):
