Leading up to the world premier of its “ALL Access” documentary <http://www.allaccessdocs.com> , Kyocera Communications Inc. <http://www.kyocera-wireless.com> is working with Virgin Mobile USA <http://www.virginmobileusa.com> and the Independent Film Channel (IFC) <http://www.ifc.com> to give music fans a sneak peek at the revealing film about one of America’s leading music festivals. The documentary, which was created entirely by a team of 14 aspiring filmmakers between 16 and 22 years old, gives a behind-the-scenes look at the 2009 Virgin Mobile FreeFest <http://www.virginmobilefestival.com/> .
Carefully balancing the raw energy of the music with the event’s underlying theme of helping homeless youth, the film features concert footage and interviews with Weezer, Franz Ferdinand, the founders of Public Enemy, Taking Back Sunday and Blink-182 frontman Tom DeLonge.
From Nov. 10 through Dec. 14, IFC will showcase the documentary for its 7 million viewers in a series of six weekly vignettes airing every Tuesday night. The vignettes also will be available for viewing at www.billboard.com and www.heavy.com
Additionally, Kyocera will pre-screen the full “ALL Access” documentary for the first time at a Nov. 18 concert benefiting homeless youth, hosted by Virgin Mobile USA and Public Enemy. November is National Homeless Youth Awareness Month <http://web.virginmobileusa.com/life/regeneration-nhyam> and proceeds from the event, taking place in Washington, D.C. at George Washington University’s Lisner Auditorium, will benefit Sasha Bruce House <http://www.sashabruce.org/> , a non-profit shelter for homeless youth in Washington, D.C.
“The 14 filmmakers who created ‘ALL Access’ were chosen from thousands of applicants because of their passion and artistic vision, both of which shine through in this documentary,” said Tom Maguire, head of global marketing at Kyocera Communications Inc. “We’re grateful that IFC is supporting these young artists by bringing their work to millions of people, and proud that the film’s first full-length screening will be to benefit homeless youth.”
