The Internet has enabled a new era of fascinating filmmaking. From bizarre, artistic short films to videos of guys getting hit in the nuts, there’s always something to look at on your monitor, phone or device. The only thing that could make it better would be putting these wonders on the big screen and sitting down with a bunch of other folks to make an event of it, which is precisely the point of Best of the Interwebs on the Big Screen.
“There’s all these amazing things being circulated,” explains Pablo Kjolseth, executive director of the International Film Series at the University of Colorado. “[But] we watch them at work, half paying attention, and they’re cluttered with ads. They look great on the big screen. It’s very compelling; it makes it larger than life. The gathering together with other people is big, because of the community aspect of it. It’s very different watching it with a bunch of people, having the same reaction to it.”
