Indie Film Needs Your Song

Bingo Night, currently in post-production, is an indie film about a retiree who, on the brink of eviction, devises a plan to rob her local bingo hall (and recruits her elderly friends to help). 

The filmmakers are hosting an open call for a song to feature during the movie’s heist scene, which we can only assume will be action-packed and granny-filled.

Submissions should be made by 10/13 to BingNightFilm [at] gmail [dot] com, with “Heist Song” in the subject line. Updates will be announced via the film’s facebook page.

For more info about the film, check it out on IMDB and Kickstarter.

The main players are Dan Bowhers, the director of Chicken, Vandall Truong, lead actor, and Mike Kolawski, the film’s producer. Continue reading
