For six years now, the Arizona Underground Film Festival has been bringing spectacular genre films to Tucson. They've also brought a wide array of film-makers, actors, and other behind-the-scenes types to town, and it's one of the more personal and comfortable festivals I've attended. If you've ever wanted to cozy up to some of the most innovative people working in the Cult, Experimental, Horror and other off-kilter genres, I suggest you seek this festival out. This year the fun is taking place from September 13 - 21.
They've just released their second wave of films, and it's looking good! You can check those out here. They announced their first wave of films last week, and those are right here. Two documentaries on Harry Dean Stanton AND Divine?! Color me impressed.
The full lineup will be announced on August 23, and you can buy festival tickets starting that day as well. All information can be found at the Arizona Underground Film Festival website.
