I 2013 Cinemateket in Copenhagen held their annual International Musik Filmfestival with the best program ever! Among the highlights of the program was DIG! – about the music industry’s battle to sign The Brian Jonestown Massacre and/or The Dandy Warhols. One of the best music documentaries ever made. Nothing happens in Kathmandu on the art and culture scene. So seeing this program was difficult – especially since I was working at Capitol during the battle and remembered the hype. The good thing about Kathmandu is that that everything is possible. So what was meant as a funny comment to my friend and festival curator the Torsten Hvass why don’t we make a Musik Film Festival in Kathmandu – I MUST see DIG! ended up becoming reality. 3 months later we kicked off Kathmandu International Filmfestival 2013. And I saw DIG! for the first time. Kathmandu, 2 June /Thomas [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=84oiQJ1N9To?rel=0&controls=0&showinfo=0]
