Saving Your Cinematic Soul

Press Release
95BFM and Radio Active Present
The 2006 24Hour V Movie Marathon

Back for a sixth wildly successful year, the V 24 Hour Movie Marathon is THE movie-geek event of the year. A celebration of wild and wicked celluloid that caters to film-fiends who wanna party in a cinema from dusk ‘til dawn - and back to dusk again.

To hard-core movie fans, cinemas are churches. And each year devoted disciples make an annual pilgrimage to two NZ cinemas to begin a cinematic cleansing that lasts 24 solid hours. Immersed in all forms of motion picture entertainment, these fans feast on sights never to be forgotten, they listen in rapture to the music of lost worlds and in the end, they take their minds to the precipice of beyond and teeter there like broomhandles on a drunken uncle's chin.

As always, the V 24 Hour Movie Marathon lineup is a surprise - handpicked from vaults around the world and guaranteed to blow impressionable minds forever. This years cinematic lineup includes: a flesh-munching masterpiece, a holy hootenanny, a 70s musical freak-out, a lost counterculture artifact, a ‘80’s science-fiction classic; a study of sexual perversity, a new wave action flick, a one-man exploitation extravaganza, an epic misfire and much much more.

The V 24 Hour Movie Marathon is the last frontier in exhibition, it's where art meets trash head on, the results aren't always pretty but they are notoriously unforgettable.

Howard Davis Article: A Musical Axis - Brahms, Wagner, Sibelius

Brahms' warm and exquisitely subtle Symphony No. 3 in F major, Wagner's irrepressibly sentimental symphonic poem Siegfried Idyll, and Sibelius' chilling and immensely challenging Violin Concerto in D minor exemplify distinct stages of development in a tangled and convoluted series of skirmishes that came to define subsequent disputes about the nature of post-Romantic orchestral writing well into the following century.
