FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
San Francisco, CA, October 4, 2011 - Join The Estria Graffiti Arts Festival as we bring you the movie Bomb It 2, screening for the first time in San Francisco at the Roxie Theatre, 3117 16th St, in San Francisco’s Mission District. The movie is part of “The Can Film Fest”, organized by non profit arts organization, The Estria Foundation, as part of their week long Graffiti Arts Festival taking place October 6-8. The movie Bomb It 2 is a sequel to the classic graffiti and street art film Bomb It, directed and produced by Jon Reiss.
“Bomb It 2 shows the incredible range of styles and ideas that surround graffiti and street art culture throughout the world and especially in places where most people probably don’t even think it exists. Graffiti and street art is not a monolithic force around the world – it is different for every individual and every culture – and I feel that is evident in the broad range of practitioners in the film. I’m happy to partner with The Estria Graffiti Arts Festival this year and be part of celebrating one of the most vibrant art movements happening in the world today. A lot of misunderstanding and miscommunication exists surrounding this world – and the more outreach by organizations such as the Estria Foundation the better!” - Jon Reiss, Bomb It 2 Director
The one day movie festival will also include a series of interviews featuring street artists Doze Green, Poster Boy, and Miss Vans, produced by Friends We Love (friendswelove.com). This past year’s Honolulu Graffiti Battle video will also premiere at the screening, along with videos from the Estria Foundation’s international Water Writes mural series project.
There will be two screenings, 6-8pm and 9-11pm, limited seating is available. Purchase presale tix for the movie here and receive a free Bomb It 2 poster > http://canfilmfest.eventbrite.com/ *Tickets will be sold at the door. You can also RSVP on FB.
