Support the AGFA for Less Than a Dollar and Get Some Wild Genre Film Footage to Stream and Enjoy
The American Genre Film Archive is a non-profit near and dear to my heart. I love weird old genre flicks, the weirder and trashier the better. I like to read about them, watch them, and otherwise am fascinated by strange flicks. The AGFA is the only Federally recognized 501(c)(3) dedicated to the preservation of the legacy of genre movies through collection, conservation, and distribution. They have a fancy building in Texas that restores and stores these films which they rent to theaters as well, with all profits going back into the organization and its mission. However, with theaters shut-down, they have been needed a bit of extra help to raise funds. With this in mind, they just released their awesome, "AGFA MYSTERY MIXTAPE #1."
For just 99 cents (or more, I gave five bucks) you can buy the ability to stream this, "Mixtape," online with an hour-ish or random weird genre content in a zany, "Found footage," style. As the description goes, it is, "...a brand new compilation of the most electrifying found footage mayhem that you’ll see this week. For our kick-off tape, we’ve curated an hour-long joyride through the hallowed halls of 'behind the scenes' horror." For a penny less than a dollar (do give more if able, however) you can feel good about donating to charity and get some awesome zany old film content to watch. I donated and am eager to kick-back later today and watch the whole thing after just enjoying a smidgen before needing to do some household tasks, and then making this post. Gotta keep busy during the quarantine, you know how it is.
