Programming Note: Vote on Selections for Independent Features Fest

I was just reminded that Friday is the kickoff of the Independent Features Film Festival's selection process -- a relatively unremarkable period for most festivals, of course, triggering only a kneejerk response among penniless filmmakers who compulsively scrounge $40 to submit their work to just one more fest. But on this unusual occasion, the festival is engaging viewers to actually program its films during a month of voting; the top vote-getters will land theatrical screening July 27-28 at the IFFF's inaugural event in Tribeca.

You do have to register to use the site, and until tomorrow, anyway, only trailers are available for viewing. Worst of all, indie producers don't have the budget to buy your vote, but if you have the inclination and fortitude to just sidestep your cynicism and ignore your inbox for a little while longer (i.e. the next couple of weeks; there are more than 225 films in the running), you can maybe discover something new and flex that bleary-eyed programmer muscle you know you've been trying to bulk up in preparation for that career change you're planning.
