News from the Freeform Front

The WFMU Record Fair is coming your way: May 1-3 at the Brooklyn Expo Center in Greenpoint (79 Franklin St)! Luxuriate in a gigantic room filled wall-to-wall with LPs, 45s, CDs, videos, books, posters, collectibles and who knows what else! Oh wait, I know: special appearances by Danny Kroha (Demolition Doll Rods / Gories), Bambi Kino, Miriam, Olivia Neutron John, and more!

The Free Music Archive challenges you to make a fake movie trailer! Enter the FMA's Unreel Trailers Challenge: grab some public domain film footage, FMA music, and create a short video trailer for a movie that doesn't exist (yet). The deadline for submissions is May 8th and the winner will receive a fancy projector.
The WFMU documentary, Sex and Broadcasting, is coming to Cimmfest in Chicago on Apr 18th at the Logan Theater (11pm, tickets), and then on May 6th and 10th at the Montclair Film Festival right here in NJ (tickets). And if you're in Canada, we haven't forgotten about you! The film will be showing at the Canadian Week Music Festival in Toronto May 9th (1:30pm, tickets).
Record Fair in Brooklyn May 1-3?! I want to go to there, but how? Mass transit tips for those not accustomed to outer-borough travel: the closest subway to the Record Fair is the G train at Greenpoint Ave (less than 5 min walk to the Brooklyn Expo Center). Coming from Manhattan? Take the A train into Brooklyn and transfer to a Queens-bound G train at Hoyt-Schermerhorn (the L train will be down May 2-3).
Join WFMU at Monty Hall on Apr 28th for an evening of music celebrating the wide range of musical styles coming out of Cambodia in the '60s and '70s.

Tickets here.
