Despite a frightening moment two weeks ago, when it appeared that ArgusFest had been killed by founder Jason Bosch (he did send out an email titled "ArgusFest R.I.P.?"), the weekly film series is most certainly alive. Here's his e-mail to his peeps, letting them know what's a happening. For a complete schedule, clickhere

I want to thank everyone who came out on Sunday in Support of Emergency USA and also I want to thank Sparlha, the staff at the Oriental Theater, Mom, Sarah, Khadija, Malcolm and Doug. Special thanks to Baroness Wines and Damascus Grill. You should try Damascus Grill (on Littleton Blvd) they are very delicious.
Coming up next week will be a meeting to lay out future plans for ArgusFest and recruit volunteers. Yes, ArgusFest is here to stay and is going to get a whole lot better. I want to go back to my original vision for ArgusFest which is a multi-day festival featuring music, film, art, performance art and speakers to educate about human rights, social justice, media, environment, freedom of speech, critical thinking and more. My aim is to have this festival happen this coming fall. I want to get your feedback and I'm also looking for some key people who want to work on this project with me. So come to the meeting if you're interested in getting involved or just want to learn more. In the meantime the weekly ArgusFest Film Series WILL continue as always bringing you the best documentaries on the above mentioned issues. I've got a lot of great new stuff coming up including a brand new series from Adam Curtis (director of Power of Nightmares and Century of the Self).
