John Heyn and Jeff Krulik couldn’t have imagined that two hours of videotaping in a Judas Priest concert parking lot in 1986 would turn into a 25-year franchise celebrating fandom and fanatics. Their HEAVY METAL PARKING LOT has become a cult touchstone among rock documentaries (hailed by filmmaker Cameron Crowe as “one of the greatest rock movies ever”), and helped launch a “parking lot genre” the continues to resonate today. The LOFT FILM FEST is “wicked proud” to host the official kickoff for the year-long 25th anniversary celebration. Included in this program of epically awesome proportions is the documentary that started it all, the one-and-only HEAVY METAL PARKING LOT, as well as sequels NEIL DIAMOND PARKING LOT, HARRY POTTER PARKING LOT, and clips from the rarely seen TV series PARKING LOT. Also on the bill: a bone-crushing, ear-shattering, mud-splattered sneak preview of HEAVY METAL PICNIC, a new documentary about one of the wildest weekend field parties of all time! Dude.
