NYC Indie Film Festival Needs our Help

While it may not be quite as obvious as of late, we here in the RowThree really love our indie fare. In fact, without Indie Film Festivals, it’s pretty likely that this site wouldn’t even exist. At any rate, if you’re in the NYC area (or not in the NYC area) and want to help support a local festival that really tries hard to advance the cause...

2013 Independent Spirit Award WINNERS

  Tomorrow is Oscar Night. But the real party is tonight at “The Spirit Awards.” While 12 Years a Slave unsurprisingly pretty much cleaned house (earning 5 wins of its 7 nominations), it was nice to see some recognition for other, smaller films like Mud and Short Term 12.

One of our favorite indie filmmakers around these parts we continue to pimp out is our guy, Gary King (of the award-winning How Do You Write A Joe Schermann Song and New York lately).

“A Clockwork Orange” Reboot? “Alex” will Hit Theaters Next Year

Another case here of “I don’t know much about it but I’m fascinated to learn more. I found this little droogie over at Quiet Earth and simply had to share. It looks like someone is trying to reboot or maybe sort of remix Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange. Now one might think most would immediately scream blasphemy at even the thought...
