The New England Underground Film Festival, a new celebration of the best of contemporary underground cinema, will have its inaugural presentation on October 8 in New Haven, Connecticut. The festival will present a full-day line-up of feature-length and short films, and the programming is open to all aspects of the underground cinema spectrum: narrative productions, non-fiction films, experimental works, animation and music videos. The festival will present awards for Best Film, Best Short, Best Non-Fiction Production and Best Director.
Phil Hall, contributing editor for the influential online magazine Film Threat and author of the books “Independent Film Distribution” and “The History of Independent Cinema,” is the director and chief programmer for the festival, which can be found online at http://newenglanduff.webs.com.
“For most film lovers, contemporary underground cinema is often an elusive commodity,” says Hall. “I hope that this festival will connect underground filmmakers with audiences in search of something different and provocative.”
The festival will be held at Master of None LLC, a visual and performing arts space. Master of None LLC is located online at http://www.masterofnonllc.com.
