THE FILM FESTIVAL OF COLLECTORS & CONNOISSEURS OF HORROR, EXPLOITATION AND THE CURIOUS ARTS!
This is a new kind of documentary film festival. Inspired by the collectors of 1980s VHS horror movies, we want to shine a light on the collectors and their obsessive love for movies, music and art. And the cult figures who make this stuff!
- Collectors Are Experts
Or at the very least their passion gives them a unique perspective. And it’s fun to watch them talk about the things they love.
- Creators Need Love
We can never give directors, composers, artists, and craftspeople enough recognition. Especially underground/cult figures. And even better when they make it personal. And dare we say “obsessive”.
- Collectors & Fans Make Movies Too
Modern technology allows everyone to make their own movies now. Take advantage of it. And use your unique perspective as a lover of the Twisted Arts to create something special.
While this is primarily a documentary film festival, the subject matter demands a narrative category too. So we set up Sleazy Shorts for that.
Also we combine the film festival with an actual swap meet element. Screening shorts during the swap. Concluding with a special theater screening in the evening. With special guest appearances and surprises.
Fun. Art. Chaos!
