Los Angeles-based Anxiety Films is at it again, scheduling their fourth in the series of Mini-Shock short film festivals, Mini-Shock 4: Revenge of the Panty-Sniffing, Alien-Contacting Vampires. The festival will take place at the California Institute of Abnormal Arts (C.I.A.) 11334 Burbank Blvd., North Hollywood (818-506-6353) on May 1, 2004. Doors will open at 7:00 P.M. on Saturday and won’t close until 2 A.M. Sunday morning early.
Bursting at the seams with random celebrities, artwork specially made for the occasion, performance, bands, merchandise, DJs, and, of course, the most absolutely provocative underground films, Mini-Shock 4: Revenge of the Panty-Sniffing, Alien-Contacting Vampires plans to out-do all the wannabe underground film festivals this year.
