For those who don’t know, we PopGurls all met through the now-defunct Buffy the Vampire Slayer posting board, The Bronze. One of our fellow Bronzers, Stephanie Tuszynski, did a fab documentary about the life, death and afterlife of The Bronze. And more than that, IRL looks at what happens when online friendships move from the Internet into “real life.” IRL premieres next week in Los Angeles.
Why next week in particular? Because Saturday, March 10th, 2007 is the 10-year anniversary of Buffy’s first episode! (God, I feel old.) The screening will be held at Raleigh Studios in Los Angeles (655 N. Van Ness Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90038) at 2pm PST. There will be a Q&A session after the screening. The screening is free and open to the public, but seating is limited. To RSVP, e-mail IRLscreenings@gmail.com and include the letters “LA” in the subject line.
It’s very exciting! And you can see Amanda and Amy (who looks particularly dorky) on-screen! Before the screening, PopGurl writer Allyson Beatrice will give a reading from her forthcoming book about life in the online “Buffy” fandom, Will The Vampire People Please Leave The Lobby?
