Future of Music Coalition Supports Indie Films on Music

Fmc[1] Future of Music Coalition, a non-profit organization committed to advocating music-related causes, is joining forces with Community Cinema and PBS’ Independent Lens in upcoming documentary screenings. Community Cinema provides free monthly screenings and discussions for independent film enthusiasts, two of which caught FMC’s eye.

D Tour by Jim Granato follows indie-rock band Rogue Wave’s Pat Spurgeon and his battle with kidney failure. Dedicated to his music career, Spurgeon continues to tour with the group while undergoing dialysis and searching for a living organ donor. The film also touches on the broader issue of musicians finding health care as they pursue their careers.

Dates and locations for D Tour can be found here.

Copyright Criminals looks into the evolution of hip-hop from the streets of New York City to its current status as a multibillion-dollar industry and the issue of copyright. Music technology of late makes unlawful sampling much more prevalent and lights a flame under the debate about the practice.

Dates and locations for Copyright Criminals can be found here.
