In the middle of the Mojave desert, just outside Las Vegas, rests an
abandoned phone booth, riddled with bullet holes, graffiti, its windows
broken, but otherwise functioning. For years, travellers would make the trek
down a lonely dirt road and camp next to the booth, in the hopes that it
might suddenly ring, and they could connect with a stranger - often from
another country. This is the story of four disparate characters whose lives
intersect with this mystical outpost, and the common voice they seek on the
other end of the line. Exploring themes of love, death, the mystery of the
universe, and the phenomenon of inter-connectivity

1) The 9th Annual SF IndieFest  festival is fast approaching....and we're
looking for your sweet, sweet volunteer lovin' to help make this festival
the bloody best we've had yet!

Whether you're an old-skool-volunteer-rockstar, new to the Fest, or just
plain curious about trading some time for tickets to killer indie films,
*WELCOME* and we appreciate your sheer interest in supporting independent
film (and SF IndieFest of course), on every imaginable level.

To simplify matters, this email is broken down into three sections--but if
you've got any further questions, don't hesitate to ask!
::1:: Volunteer Breakdown
::2:: How to sign up
::3:: Volunteer shifts 2/8-2/18

We hope you'll enjoy the films, filmmakers and festivities we've got lined
up for this year, and look forward to seeing you at the Fest!

Genuinely gargantuan gobs of gratitude,
-Alicia & the rest of the IndieFest crew (Jeff, Fay, Caitlin, Cat, Stacey,

2) I recently learned of a contest being held by PBR, „Paint the Can,‰ which
asks artists to create their own interpretation of the PBR can in a painting
on canvas. (You "do not" actually paint onto a real can):

Winners receive $1500 and a 2-year supply of PBR (which, in the fine print,
amounts to a 24-can case every two months). You simply paint a piece, snap a
digital photo of it, and e-mail the jpg to PBR (you get to keep the painting
and don‚t have to deal with mailing it).

XOXO - have a beautiful and creative day
