Join us for a raucous, fun night to celebrate upstate film! Our host for the evening, Art Fredette (RadioRadioX.com and The Xperience Magazine), will introduce you to the cast and crew of The Black Sky Under Harper’s Rock, filmed entirely in Waterford, NY. You will get an exclusive preview of the film’s latest trailer highlighting many familiar area locations and talent. The evening’s highlight is critically acclaimed IFC Midnight’s Pledge, about three friends that get the chance to live the college dream when invited to join an elite fraternity—but first they'll have to survive the hazing from hell. A sadistic initiation ritual that goes from depraved to deadly over the course of 48 booze-and blood-soaked hours. Spiked with twisted humor and gruesome shocks, Pledge asks: how far would you go to be popular? Pledge stars Aaron Dalla Villa as Max, the elite fraternity’s (psychopathic) leader. Aaron also stars in The Black Sky Under Harper’s Rock.
