Alamo Drafthouse, Mother of Pearl Vinyl Present: Mother of Pearl Film Series Saturday

This Saturday, September 24 Mother of Pearl and Alamo Drafthouse Montecillo join forces to present the Mother of Pearl Film Festival.

The series of films will be featured at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema Montecillo to celebrate local filmmaking talent and films that range vastly between genres (including animation).

“Music and film have a symbiotic relationship and we liked the idea of teaming up with our friends at Mother of Pearl Vinyl to highlight some films that are central to the music scene,” said Robert Saucedo, Programming Director for the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema Montecillo.

Tickets are 100% free and you can reserve your seat at the box office upon arrival.

The festival will begin at 12PM with short Q&A sessions with filmmakers following each screening. For more information please click here.

Mother of Pearl Announces Film Festival and Contest

The inaugural Mother of Pearl Film Fest will take place on September 14-17, with the first three days at Alamo Drafthouse, and finishing on September 17th at the second annual Mother of Pearl Block Party.

The First three days will focus on music related films and documentaries at Alamo Drafthouse. Selections will include new and yet to be officially released films such as “Gimme Danger” the Stooges film, and modern classics such as “The Decline of Western Civilization” (with a Skype interview featuring Penelope Spheris, the acclaimed director of the films.)

The final day, September 17th will take place on site at the Mother of Pearl Block Party, and will focus on local/regional filmmaking.

A call will be put out to local filmmakers to submit their films into the competition. The focus will be on independent, regional filmmakers who have taken initiative to create and work on their art.

The winner will receive a minimum $5,000.00  prize to help fund his or her next film (potentially larger prize based on number of submissions and donors)

According to their website, Mother of Pearl was founded in 2014 as El Paso’s only all-vinyl record store. Shortly into our existence, we decided to expand operations to include a record label, and launched with the release of critically-acclaimed Part Time’s third LP, Return to Cherry.

This coincided with our first-annual SXSW showcase, in which we took El Paso bands to Austin for a day-long showcase complete with free beer by Big Bend Brewing and Chico’s Tacos.

After returning to El Paso on a high from a successful SXSW, they decided to keep the momentum going by launching the inaugural Mother of Pearl Block Party featuring Mike Jones, Neon Indian, Peanut Butter Wolf, and Jrocc, completely for free! Over 10,000 of our closest friends helped us celebrate that day.
