Efterklang & Vincent Moon  present An Island (and invite you to do the same!)


Last year Efterklang collaborated with filmmaker Vincent Moon for their film project An Island, the film will be shown before each show on their European tour (see below for dates). In addition, the band and Mr Moon have announced details of ‘public-private’ screenings -allowing people to host their own screenings of the film. Applications are open from today at  www.anisland.cc and must be approved, in order to screen the film, applicants must adhere to these simple rules:

  • The screenings need to offer free entry
  • The screenings need to be public
  • The screenings need to have a minimum capacity of five people
  • The screenings need to be verified by Efterklang and Vincent Moon and only screenings that are featured on www.anisland.ccare official Private-Public Screening

It’s a lovely idea, and could see some screenings in libraries, shops, schools- even your own living room- I’ll leave the inspiration behind the screenings project to the creators:

“We hope that a lot of people will host and attend screenings of AN ISLAND. The Private-Public Screenings are our attempt at creating a free and inspiring distribution method for our film. It is also our attempt to give something back to our many supporters around the world. We have financed this film ourselves and we hope that we can recoup some of that money through donations. However, the memory of the 4 days we spent on the island of Als in August 2010 and our joy and pride of the finished film is a huge reward in itself.” – Vincent Moon & Efterklang
