The Paso Digital Film Festival, planned for Nov. 20 through 25

The theme of this year’s festival is Music and Film, and the State and Fate of Children and Youth!

So, with that said we are celebrating the two art forms and how they blend. From soundtrack composers, films about music, musicians, original songs, and all that goes along with the necessary blending of music and the art of film. Therefore, it is our goal to provide you with amazing music; from big name performers in large concert settings, to a wide range of local talentin cozy candlelit settings. 

The other theme will pay tribute to the film makers that produce films to shock and educate us on the state and fate of childen and youth, with films on Austism, runaway, homeless and missing children, child abuse, sexual molestation and child pornography.  We plan to have some of the top people in the US running programs to help the children living in the tragic conditions shown in the films.

THE FILM FESTIVAL WILL BE STREAMED ONLINE AND VIA MOBIL SCREENS.

Boasting the
unusual first-year theme of 'Music in Film' and 'Musical Documentaries', the
up-coming Paso Robles Digital Film Festival will screen at least 28 full-length
films at local venues in and around this classic small-town historic California
location. PRDFF organizer Ben Standley is pleased to announce that screenings
planned for the festival have been selected to delight, amaze and educate
guests who attend in late November.

Veteran music and event promoter Standley has planned and carried out
large-scale concerts and events for music-world personalities such as Bob
Dylan, Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, and Waylon Jennings. In this world of
folk-music, honky-tonk and jazz, it's the deeper themes of personalities,
emotions and American music tradition that will be brought into the new-wave of
digital media, for today's audiences and young filmmakers, at the festival.
Towards this end, films-to-be-screened at the festival will include the rare
and unusual, old favorites, major studio films, and completely new films
neverbefore viewed in public.

The first round of films already booked and scheduled to be screened include:

Be Here to Love Me (Townes Van Zandt): Director Margaret Brown's
film is an insightful look at the sacrifices, challenges and consequences of
legendary musician Townes Van Zandt's pursuit of his dream, inspiring artists
such as Bob Dylan, Norah Jones and Steve Earle.

Bob Dylan-Don't Look Back: from film-maker D. A.. Pennebaker,
film follows Bob Dylan in the Spring of 1965 at the age of 23 years-old, as a
pixyish troubadour, for three weeks in England. The camera follows Dylan
from the airport to the performance hall, from his hotel room to his concerts,
with conversations and more.

Blaze Foley: the Duct Tape Messiah: as a bona fide country music
legend, this musician was born in a tree-house and shot dead in a friend's
living room. Foley's heart-felt songs are covered by Merle Haggard, John Prine,
Willie Nelson and Lyle Lovett.

The Ballad of Ramblin' Jack: from his unlikely roots as the son
of a Jewish doctor in Brooklyn, to his on-going wanderings as the last of the
singing cowboys, Ramblin' Jack has packed so many adventures into his life that
he seems more myth than man. His music ignited a folk revolution in the 60's,
and has influenced some of the most popular musicians and performers of our
day.

The Blues According to Lightin' Hopkins: the great Texas bluesman
Lightin' Hopkins is captured brilliantly in this deeply moving film. The
film-maker reveals the musician's inspiration, with a generous helping of
classic blues.

Festival Express: captured on film in the summer of 1970, on a
chartered train crossing Canada, carrying some of the world's greatest rock
bands, including The Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, The Band, Buddy Guy, and
others, for five days, as they party and perform at live concerts in major
cities along the way.

Fallen Angel: this film looks at the life and early death of
musician Gram Parsons, who died mysteriously under the influence of drugs and
alcohol in 1973 near the Joshua Tree National Monument in California. Friends,
contemporaries and devotees of Gram Parsons talk about his work, his legend,
and his death, on location.

No Direction Home: Bob Dylan: from director Martin Scorsese, on
the story of Bob Dylan, from his roots in Minnesota to his tumultuous ascent to
stardom starting in 1966.

Other screenings will include, Neil Young: Heart of Gold; The Last
Waltz
; Los Lonely Boys; You're Gonna' Miss Me (about musician
Roky Erickson); Director Alexander Payne's popular comedy film Sideways;
director Martin Scorsese film on the legendary Rolling Stones rock band, Shine
A Light
; Rock 'n Roll Music in Mexico by film-maker Lance Miccio; The
Last of the Blue Devils
, and many more. For more information visit PRDFF.com
