Sponsored by Nuclear Blast USA, Decibel Magazine, Amoeba Music L.A. and Dean Guitars, the world’s first-ever film festival dedicated to heavy metal music will be taking place at the Downtown Independent Cinema in Los Angeles, California this coming March 31st through April 3rd, 2011.

Organizer and lifelong metalhead Samuel Douek shares an exciting addition to the Heavy Metal Film Festival’s inaugural line-up: “We are proud to announce that Germany’s Blind Guardian have submitted a magical, one-of-a-kind, still-in-the-making film edited by Andreas Fiekers called ‘Travelers at the Edge of Time’ for a world premiere to debut exclusively at the Heavy Metal Film Festival in Downtown Los Angeles. The new film speaks to the band’s evolution and how it led them into the symphonic saga of their latest album, 2010’s Billboard Top 200-charting ‘At The Edge Of Time’. ‘Travelers at the Edge of Time’ will be screened at the HMFF’s special Closing Night event on Sunday at 9 p.m.”
