The Cleats of Imminent Doom is a short film by Craig Hammill, which aired on IFC back in June. It’s about a girls soccer team playing in a pivotal match in a soccer tournament and all the interesting personalities you find at a youth soccer match. A number of people who saw it in June asked if I had seen it (I hadn’t) and said that they loved it. It must be generating a lot of ‘buzz’ even months after it was shown. I wrote about the film in early July and that one post gets Google referrals from searches for ‘Cleats of Imminent Doom’ almost every day.

Well, if you are like me and missed it in June, you have a second chance to catch it on IFC in October. The Cleats of Imminent Doom is part of the IFC October Short Film Collection II (2005). Below are the scheduled showings in October:

  • Tuesday, October 4th, 12:15PM
  • Thursday, October 6th, 10:00AM
  • Sunday, October 9th, 2:00PM
  • Thursday, October 13th, 10:00AM
  • UPDATE – Looks like they added a few more showings…
  • Sunday, October 16th, 11:45AM
  • Friday, October 21st, 1:45PM
  • Friday, October 28th, 1:45PM

I’ve already got a friend with a PVR recording it for me (yes, a geek like me still has no PVR) so I’ll post some thoughts on it once I finally get to see it! Post your thoughts as well, the more the merrier!
