Disposable Film Festival: Calling directors and….everyone.

We’re proud to be a 2011 sponsor of the Disposable Film Festival not JUST because they do amazing things like have “bike-in” movie screenings (see below the jump) but because they support all of us getting out there and making film. For the director in all of us, start shooting on your Flip, phone, or point+shoot and see how inspired you become.

In their own words, “Selected by MovieMaker Magazine as one America’s “coolest film festivals,” the Disposable Film Festival was created in 2007 by Eric Slatkin and Carlton Evans to celebrate the creative potential of disposable video: short films made on everyday equipment like cell phones, pocket cameras, and other inexpensive video capture devices.”

Check out the festival trailer to get a taste for what it’s all about.

Team Rickshaw will be attending their premier event this Thursday March 22nd at the HIstoric Castro Theater where we will be debuting one of our coolest custom bags yet, but fear not! After debuting in SF, the festival travels around the world and may be coming soon to a city near you. And in the meantime here’s a super sneak peak of the bags.

How cool is this drive in? Anyway, one thing we’ve learned is there are amazing, fun, simple, stupid and inspiring moments everyday that are easy on film. At Rickshaw we try to capture factory life and share it with you as often as possible, who knows maybe next year we’ll even have an entry. What are you waiting for? Go out, point, and shoot!

Bike-in theater? Count Rickshaw in!
