February Events Madness! The Sequel!

Crispin Glover returns to NYC with What Is It?

After everything that went into The Reeler's recent rundown of February's cinematic happenings around town, I hardly imagined I'd be facing another torrent of listings less than a week later. But while my hard-on for showy sprawls like the Whitney's Lights, Camera, Action series has mostly abated (I'll still be there for Destricted on Feb. 23), a few arousing odds and ends have shuffled into the inbox in the last 48 hours:

--The tireless gang at Makor sent word that they've just booked the Oscar-nominated Catholic Church exposé Deliver Us From Evil for Thursday, Feb. 15 -- with director Amy Berg in attendance. Tickets are $15 and available here.

--Tickets are free at BAM's screening of Life Support, the Sundance '07 closing-night selection and the feature-directing debut of writer/producer/Brooklyn impresario Nelson George. The film stars Queen Latifah as a recovering drug addict whose activism in New York's AIDS/HIV community leads to a series of personal crises; the film will premiere this spring on HBO, but in the meantime, George and his sister Andrea Williams (from whose life George drew his film's backstory) will be on hand for the screening and a discussion with the hometown crowd. Contact BAM's Matthew Buchholz for ducat information.

--The Pioneer is hosting an evening program Feb. 11 with the gang from Blip.TV, which takes the Web video cause one step further by aligning advertisers and word-of-mouth with popular vloggers. Much Q&A follows with the company braintrust and some of its local devotees; tickets are $10 and available here.

--Finally, IFC Center is hosting two nights of screenings featuring this year's Slamdance doc and dramatic jury prize winners; Adam Hootnick's Gaza-withdrawal doc Unsettled and Dylan Verrechia's coming-of-age story Tijuana Makes Me Happy screen Monday and tuesday respectively, each preceded by a popular Slamdance '07 short. Tickets are $11 and available here.

--Oh, and also at IFC Center -- and pretty much speaking for itself -- Crispin Glover's What Is It? and Big Slide Show screen from Feb. 9-11 with the filmmaker/actor in person. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. It likely goes without saying, but leave the kids at home.
