Sydney Underground Film Festival

By August 26, 2014 Events


Like your cinema edgy and out-there? Fancy all things fun and freaky in a film festival? Then the 8th Sydney Underground Film Festival (SUFF) is the place for you! From 4-7 September at Marrickville’s Factory Theatre, SUFF has another wildly diverse program of independent and experimental filmmaking combined to shock, challenge, inspire and amuse.

SUFF opening night and party kicks off with the Sydney premiere of New Zealand horror-comedy Housebound, and brings everything to a close with the unapologetically vulgar and undeniably entertaining Wetlands just days later.

In between, eclectic cinema treats await adventurous film fans, including Eli Roth’s laugh-and-scream-a-minute homage to Cannibal Holocaust, The Green Inferno; a documentary portrait of Holy Motors’ auteur Leos Carax, Mr X; up-and-coming talent Leah Meyerhoff introducing her surreal teen fantasy I Believe in Unicorns; hilarious new film by Japanese cult filmmaker Sion Sono Why Don’t you Play in Hell?; thought-provoking documentary by Sydney filmmaker Michael Dahlstrom on animal welfare in Australia The Animal Condition; and seven separate short film sessions showcasing the next generation of boundary-pushing filmmakers.

So join fellow film buffs to enjoy indie cinema and events that aim to challenge and entertain.
