The Druid Underground Film Festival

Check out the website of the Druid Underground Film Festival! Here is a little information on this year’s event:

DRUID UNDERGROUND FILM FESTIVAL

New York, New York – USA  – April 25 to 26, 2014

 The 7th Annual Druid Underground Film Festival (DUFF), a multifaceted celebration of film, music, and the magic of the unknown. With a strong emphasis on outrageous, personal, and truly independent works of cinema, DUFF provides a powerful platform for unorthodox stories that might not otherwise find the audiences they deserve. 

Year after year, moviegoers with eclectic tastes and unique perspectives make their way to DUFF for an unforgettable party that champions independent film. This year’s program will be presented bi-coastally both at the historical HM 157 in Los Angeles as well as Manhattan’s Anthology Film Archives, an international center for the preservation, study, and exhibition of experimental and avant-garde film and video. 

Previous winners of DUFF span a broad gamut of exciting underground cinema, including Damon Packard’s SKATEBANG, Jason Eisener’s Treevenge, Rodney Ascher’s Visions of Terror, and more. Winning filmmakers are eligible for Jury Awards, including the coveted Palm D’ruid; gain access to DUFF’s Underground Film Forum program, a collaboration and talent recruitment symposium; and enjoy media coverage from outlets including LA Weekly, The Guardian, Vice, LAist, and countless others.

MISSION AND OBJECTIVE
  – DUFF is a traveling powerhouse of the most provocative and bizarre films on Earth.

MORE ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
Feature-length and short-form films are welcomed and celebrated at DUFF in venues throughout Los Angeles and Manhattan. The festival proudly offers a wide variety of ways for talented cineastes to network and collaborate.

  1. I am curious – is the founder, Billy Burgess, actually a Druid?
