The world-famous iam8bit Gallery in Los Angeles, California is opening not one, but two incredibly cool pop-culture art exhibits next week, and /Film is proud to exclusively debut some of the art.
“Fast Cards, Rugged Men and Bad Broads” is a solo show by noted illustrator and artist Evanimal (real name Evan Yarbrough) whose works in this exhibit transfer his unique, almost graffiti-like visual style to wood, with subjects ranging from Pulp Fiction to Jaws, James Bond and more.
The second exhibit features the incredibly distinct and unique work of Senor Chips, in a collection called “Hecho en el Norte.” Chips has taken familiar pop culture icons (such as Tron, Nightmare on Elm Street, Beetlejuice, and Big) and re-imagined them in “Day of the Dead” dioramas.
Both exhibits open simultaneously at 7 p.m. October 26 at the iam8bit Gallery in Los Angeles and remain on display though November 11. After the jump, find out all the particulars and check out several images from each show. Read More »

Two great movies honoring a fantastic filmmaker with proceeds going to charity, and you get a Mondo poster. It’s hard to imagine something better than that.
Debra Hill, one of the pre-eminent producers of the Eighties and Nineties, passed away in 2005. She left not only a legacy of great films (Escape from New York, Clue, Adventures In Babysitting, The Fisher King) but a commitment to emerging producers and those two passions come together on October 26 and 27 at the New Beverly Cinema in Los Angeles, CA. There, the Producers Guild of America will host the inaugural Debra Hill Film Festival, featuring Big Top Pee-Wee and Halloween on consecutive nights with very special guests and very special posters. For Pee-Wee, Paul Reubens will be on hand along with director Randall Kleiser and co-star Penelope Ann Miller. The poster is by DKNG Studios. For Halloween, John Carpenter will be on hand with a poster by Ken Taylor.
After the jump, find out how you can buy tickets right now and check out both posters. Read More »
Each fall, it seems like there’s a film festival every single week. Toronto, Telluride, Fantastic Fest and New York are just four of the bigger ones we cover on this site. But smaller festivals abound too, each filled with so many movies it’s hard to keep track. Thankfully, in Los Angeles, we have a fantastic fest ourselves that serves both as a wrap up to the Fall and kick off to award season. It’s the AFI Fest Presented by Audi.
This year, the fest takes place November 1 through 8 in Hollywood, California, at the historic Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, the Chinese 6 Theatres, the Egyptian Theatre and the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. It kicks off with Hitchcock, ends with Lincoln, and will also feature Life of Pi, Silver Linings Playbook, Holy Motors, The Impossible, Room 237, On the Road, Rise of the Guardians, Quartet, West of Memphis, Rust and Bone, The Central Park Five and more. Much more. Those are only the Gala Screenings, Centerpiece Screenings and Special Screenings.
And the best part? They’re all free. Read more after the jump. Read More »

Hopefully after the release of the excellent film Looper, writer/director Rian Johnson will enter the elite group of filmmakers that film fans recognize on the street. That, obviously, has not happened yet. Thursday night, Johnson posed as an usher at Arclight Cinemas in Hollywood, CA and introduced the midnight screening of his film. He didn’t say he was the director. He dressed like a normal employee and gave the same speech that preceeds every single screening at the Arclight. Very few people were in on the joke.
After the jump, check out the video of the clever, fun stunt as well as a cool animated trailer for the film. Read More »

With most things in life, it’s expected the best will be saved for last. And with no disrespect meant to the other artists in the Breaking Bad Art Project, that is most certainly the case once again.
After weeks of truly beautiful art, the final poster of the viral campaign run by Gallery 1988 ha been revealed and it’s truly stunning.
