Love and pride

user
30 July: Day 6 The second last day of DIFF was my best day of all. I saw four films and they all have one thing in common - queer cinema - although the content is very different. I don't know if these films were scheduled on the same day intentonally or by accident. I, however, was very surprised to see that the inaugural Durban Pride parade also took place on this day with the gay flag draped over City Hall. I see myself as an afficionado of gay cinema and could not wait for the films ...

Cinfest 2011 Closing Ceremonies

user
Cinefest 2011 Closing Night I often find at the end of a film festival, some of the films I chose to see will unintentionally deal with the same topic on some level: Brother & Sister, Terri and Vampire all dealt with care for an elderly parent, two of which had Alzheimer's. Womb explored an Oedipal complex and Brother & Sister performed a staged version of Oedipus. If I thought about it longer, I'm sure I'd find more cross references. I enjoyed my movie date...

Introducing "Music Docs": Discovering the Best Music Documentaries of 2011 this August.

Back in 2010, the KahBang Film Festival featured the Maine Premeire of the Maynard James Keenan documentary "Blood Into Wine" to rave reviews, and with that, the KahBang Film in competition category "Music Docs" was born. KahBang has always strived to discover up and coming talent in both music and film, so what better way to celebrate that notion than showcase the undeniably fascinating stories of our favorite musical groups on the silver screen. 2011 has already seen a ver...

KahBang Film Festival

The KahBang Film Festival is one portion of the KahBang Music-Art-Film Festival, happening this August 5th - 13th 2011, in downtown Bangor, Maine. KahBang is not just another festival. It is a brand. A brand built around discovering "the next big thing" in the arts and entertainment worlds.


The KahBang Film Festival is 9 days of films that we think are cool. Some are cool for different reasons, others are cool for the same reasons, while still others are both at the same time. If it makes us laugh, if it makes us think, if someone blackmailed us to screen it, we share it with you. If you don't like it, we'll give you a refund (please note: The KahBang Festival does not offer refunds).

At the end of the day, we love films, we love filmmakers with vision, and we love Milk Duds. Our festival pays tribute to the iconic artists, the emerging auteur and even the epic fail. We hope you will join us this August and discover "cool" the way it was meant to be enjoyed.

Funny With A Dose of Acid: Blake Edwards

user
  Blake Edwards, the American director whose comedic films were always presented with a dose of acid, passed away in his Los Angeles home yesterday. In a career of highs and lows, Edwards carved a particular niche as a funny man with a dark underside and a dramatist who sometimes injected humor into dark tales of desperation. His 1961 film BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S, a huge success despite the smoothing out of the edges of its bohemian party girl Holy Gollightly, is a true classic of American...
