Green Day and CBGB Movies Leads CBGB Festival Film Lineup

(Sapka) The CBGB Music & Film Festival have revealed the film lineup for this year's festival and it includes over 60 feature films and shorts including the premiere of the new CBGB movie and Green Day documentary.

The festival is set to kick off with the screening of Broadway Idiot (a documentary following Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong and the making of his Broadway bound American Idiot) and the US theatrical premiere of the feature film, CBGB. The announcement was made by Film Festival Director, Joe Amodei.

"We have taken a big step into the future with this year's unique selection of films," states Film Festival Director, Joe Amodei. "We have secured over 25 U.S. and World Premieres in addition to including a selection of shorts for the first time. Our film selections will showcase a solid mix of music genres including rock, bluegrass, pop and folk, while also exploring the foreign music culture of countries such as Brazil, Italy, London, Australia and the underground punk scenes in Montreal and Toronto. We have also brought back some fan favorites and a host of films that have never played to NYC audiences."

"The CBGB Music & Film Festival aims to become the largest international film festival in the world for premiering and showcasing movies and shorts that focus exclusively on music." Said CBGB Music & Film Festival executive producer Tim Hayes. "No other major film festival in the county provides such a large platform for music based movies and there is no better place than New York City to do it."

The CBGB Film Festival will run from Wednesday, October 9 to Sunday, October 13. For the complete list of films and schedules you can go here.
