Who doesn’t already own a copy of ID4? For those that don’t, you can get it on Google Play video for .99 cents this weekend. Starting today, fans can go exclusively to Google Play and purchase the film for the discounted price, with all of Fox’s net proceeds benefiting Earth Day Network and their Trees for the Earth initiative.  The offer is available HERE. It’s one of my top 30 favorite films, but even I wouldn’t get it on Google Play. It isn’t like it’s a service that’s easily accessible. However if you have it, there’s no reason not to get ID4 this weekend.

Take a number of filmmakers and give them a theme and a random genre prompt; give them two months to write, shoot and edit a short film, and then take the resulting completely different short films and build an overarching story that incorporates them – then add Birdman’s Damian Young to the mix.

That’s the feat accomplished by members of the Video Mass collective – and the component parts of the 90-minute X FEST: A Speculative Fiction Short Film Festival.

X FEST: A Speculative Fiction Short Film Festival premieres at Williamsburg Cinemas and online on May 11th. Follow the jump for details.
