Dead Oceans is thrilled to announce CALIFONE’S All My Friends Are Funeral Singers will screen at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. Sundance announced yesterday that the film—released as an accompaniment to the band’s album of the same name— will be featured as part of the festival’s New Frontier section, which highlights work that explores the limits of traditional aesthetics and the narrative structures of filmmaking.
Directed by Califone frontman Tim Rutili, All My Friends Are Funeral Singers tells the story of a fortune teller who lives and works in and old house crowded with ghosts. When a mysterious light appears in the woods, the ghosts realize they are trapped and begin to rebel. Califone have screened the film alongside live performances on their latest tour, but Sundance will serve as the film’s official world premiere. The band will give one performance alongside the film at the festival, and it will also screen on its own. Watch the trailer HERE.
The 2010 Sundance Film Festival runs January 21-31 in Park City, Salt Lake City, Ogden and Sundance, Utah. The complete list of films is available HERE.
