World-Premiere of AN ISLAND Tonight in Cēsis, LATVIA

An Island will premiere tonight in Cēsis, Latvia.
If you wonder where that is you can look it up on Google Map right here.

Raimonds Gusarevs won the contest to host the World-Premiere via the contest on Wired.com with the text:

I want to screen this film in the art gallery in a very old (cold) town called Cesis in Latvia. Maybe it has a power to change mondays into fundays. Open event with wine, tea, coffee, wizards and witches. Thanks raimonds  

Congratulations to Raimonds!

If you are in Latvia tonight then stop by the art gallery Pie Augusta on Rigas Street 21 in Cēsis. The film screens at 21:00 and with a little luck Vincent Moon or a member of Efterklang will join via a Skype connection.

Tomorrow and throughout February and March almost 400 An Island screenings will take place across the globe. You can find a list of the all screenings right here on this site and also information about how to host your own screening of An Island.

Here is a photo of the art gallery Pie Augusta. We will have more photos later tonight/tomorrow.

100+ Private-Public Screenings confirmed in 3 Days!

Yesterday we confirmed Private-Public Screening number 100!

We opened for submissions Wednesday afternoon so that is a 100 confirmed Private-Public Screenings of An Island in just 3 days! Today we have already confirmed 10 more so currently there are 110 active Private-Public Screenings of An Island and the number is growing! Here is a big thank you to all that have signed up!

Our initial ambition with this project was to get a minimum of a 100 Private-Public Screenings. To reach that goal so quickly is a great feeling!

It is also nice to see that screenings have been confirmed across the globe. You can attend screenings of An Island in places like Alaska, India, New Zealand, Costa Rica, The Dominican Republic and many more including cities in Russia that we have never heard of.

Currently we have screenings on 5 continents. We just need someone in Africa and Antarctica to host and then this film and project truly will be global!

Here is a link for more info about Private-Public Screenings of An Island.
And here is a link for the Screening calendar.

thank you!

Introducing Private-Public Screenings and Teaser 3!

We are very excited about this!

From today we (Efterklang & Vincent Moon) will be accepting Private-Public Screening applications of AN ISLAND.

We are inviting you to host your own screenings of An Island.
The rules for Private-Public Screenings are very simple:

  • The screenings need to have free entrance
     
  • The screenings need to be public.
     
  • The screenings need to have a minimum capacity of 5 people
     
  • The screenings need to be verified by Efterklang & Vincent Moon and only screenings that are featured on www.anisland.cc are official Private-Public Screenings

In other words as long as entrance is free and it is an open event (as capacity permits) the Private-Public Screenings can take place at a home, at a café, in a school auditorium – basically, anywhere. Those planning to host screenings in their own homes will be able to have full control over who can attend.

Private-Public Screenings will run for two months in February and March 2011. Already today you can sign up to host one.

You can find the APPLICATION FORM and a lot MORE INFO about this idea at www.anisland.cc/home/host-a-screening

TODAY WE ARE ALSO PREMIERING THE 3rd AN ISLAND TEASER!

Vincent Moon & Efterklang presents: AN ISLAND

Three months ago in August we met up with our friend and French filmmaker Vincent Moon on an island off the Danish country side. The objective was to shoot a film. A film with the same length as an album and a film full of performances, experiments and collaborations.

We were there with our 8-piece live band featuring Niklas Antonson (Slaraffenland), Heather Broderick, Peter Broderick and Frederik Teige. Over an intense period of 4 days we managed to collaborate with more than 200 local musicians, kids and parents.

Today we are able to present the very first teaser of this film and we can also let you know that the film will premiere in February 2011.

We value An Island as much as we value our albums. We consider it one of the finest projects we have ever been involved in and can't wait to share it with you.

Please enjoy the teaser below – but if you want the full experience then please visit: WWW.ANISLAND.CC
