The 2012 California Independent Film Festival Countdown

Moraga, CA (October 11th, 2011) – The countdown begins for the 2012 California Independent Film Festival (CAIFF), which will be held from Feb 10th, 2012 through Feb 16th, 2012. To usher it in, the organizers will have a series of events leading up to its opening night.

The first event will be held this Wednesday, Oct 12th, 2012, 7 PM, at the Hacienda de las Flores in Moraga, CA. It is the launch of The Lamorinda Theatres Concert Series, with a special presentation of “The Autumn Benefit Concert for CAIFF”. This concert will be breathtaking as attendees will definitely be amazed at the eclectic musical scores, ranging from Jazz, New Age, Halloween to Fusion; especially, with the addition of exotic instruments –the largest crystal didjeridoo in the world, and singing bowls.

Scheduled performers to appear at the concert are Frank Martin, a famous keyboardist who played with Sting, Al Jarreau, Andrea Bocelli, and Tuck and Patti; Kai Eckhardt, one of the top international bassist in the world and a member of The John McLaughlin Trio; didjeridoo and singing bowl performers, Paradiso and Rasayami who currently has a New Age chart-topping CD; and Carol Alban, a well-known flutist who has played at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center. Attendees are encouraged to come in their Halloween costumes for the costume contest. Ticket admissions with light refreshments are $20 for adults; $15 for CAIFF members and students. Tickets are available at the Lamorinda Theatres website (www.LamorindaTheatres.com/events_newrheem.asp)

On Friday, October 21st, 2011, it will be a day and evening of extravaganza. CAIFF is proud to present the theatrical release of its 2010 award winning film for Best Score, “Mighty Macs” at the New Rheem Theatre. This is a heart-warming true story of a small-unknown school’s improbable journey in 1972, to win the first national women’s collegiate basketball championship. Tickets are $10 for general admission; and $8 for matinee admission, students and seniors.

In the evening, to celebrate Halloween, another fundraising event for CAIFF will take place. Lamorinda Theatres opens the doors to its “Dark Dreams Haunted House” at the New Rheem Theatre. This haunted house has been named one of the top-rated “Most Haunted Houses” in the nation and has attracted at least 500 visitors annually in the past five years. Ticket admission to the “Dark Dreams Haunted House” is $8; and $7 for the “Friday Night of Fright” movie. As a special treat, visitors purchasing both tickets will have the benefit of purchasing a small popcorn and small beverage for only $2.

Tickets for “Mighty Macs”, “Dark Dreams Haunted House”, and “Friday Night of Fright” are available for purchase at the New Rheem Theatre Box Office or visit www.LamorindaTheatres.com .  For enquiries, call 925.388.0752 or e-mail info@caiff.org .
