CHAOGRAPHY: Variations on the Theme of Freedom, a new fiction film project celebrating New Yorks jazz scene, has been named a Semi-Finalist in the first annual Ultimate Filmmaker Competition (UFC) presented by Filmmakers Alliance. One of 25 entries selected from approximately 1,000 submissions, the film is slated to feature acclaimed jazz saxophonist Stacy Dillard and pianist Eric Reed in starring roles.

For the Semi-Final Round, members of the public are encouraged to vote for the project they would most like to see funded. A video interview with writer/director Douglas Chang has been posted at the site, where viewers can get a sense of the project and a taste of Dillard and his band playing at Smalls Jazz Club in Greenwich Village. All votes must be cast by January 8, 2010.

If youd like to see great jazz lovingly rendered on film, please take a moment to visit the UFC website and vote for CHAOGRAPHY, urges Chang. Were proud to have made it to the Semi-Finals of this prestigious contest. We think its a sign that there's a real thirst out there for this kind of jazz-related film.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
