IXth Annual Druid Underground Film Festival
The widest touring underground film festival in the US, the 9th annual Druid Underground is a high-powered two-part blast of subversive cinema hosted by Billy Burgess that Flavorpill says doesn’t so much “defy convention as mow it down, douse it in kerosene, and flick a Zippo at it!”
Part one of the program is VHS Cover Junkie’s VIDEO POISON mix, a hardcore, one-hour mega-mash up hell-ride of absurd footage from VHS tapes of frustrated men, violent women, rock n’ roll problems and horrifying party videos and much much more! Get yourself a piece as American redneck culture is sliced open for all to see like a giant, horrifying cake.
Part two is a break-kneck barrage of 18 new rowdy short films celebrating the best in absurd, creative and ecstatic cinema both on and off today’s underground film radar. A spectacle unlike any other, Druid Underground champions subversive techniques that advance the language of cinema, challenge pre-conceived notions of underground art and simultaniously blow your mind out of your skull. Animation, experimental, performance art and MORE!!!
