THE JAMMED is once again screening in cinemas around the country as part of the 2008 AFI Award screenings. After the AFI announced earlier this year it had made several changes to its awards criteria for the feature film category The Jammed – which took out Best Film at the 2007 Inside Film awards, is among 25 Australian films in contention for nominations.
So that all AFI members have the opportunity to view The Jammed, THE PICTURE TANK and MOD FILMS have banded together to offer a high quality downloadable version of the film. Mod Films is a virtual studio developing new interactive formats, stories and web information systems for visual storytelling.
As of September 9th, members can visit http://thejammed.modfilms.net and download the film using a unique password. Producer Andrea Buck said, ‘The moment we were asked by the AFI to provide details of how members could view The Jammed it felt like a no-brainer: of course they should have access to watch our film at the click of a button, online. We would like members to have the option to see the film where, when and how best suits them.’
Lead actress, Veronica Sywak— fresh from presenting the film to the UN in New York, will be introducing the film to AFI theatre goers in each capital city.
Additionally, The Jammed is available on DVD to rent or buy from all leading retailers and directly through www.thejammed.com/dvd.
