A screening of the film "Backyard Blockbusters", a film about fan films and the fan filmmakers behind them.
Synopsis: Did you ever see that movie where Batman fought a Predator? Or where kids remade "Raiders of the Lost Ark"? What about the fourth season of classic "Star Trek"?
If none of these are familiar to you, that's because they're not studio projects, but fan films. For years, people have been making home movies, many times using pop culture properties that they may not own, but love. "Backyard Blockbusters" looks at the history and influence of the fanfilm genre, as well as the copyright and fair use problems these films create, featuring highlights from and interviews with the creators of many popular films.
