Buffalo Dreams Film Fest Hosting NY Premiere of Return to Return to Nuke ‘Em High aka Vol. 2

If you’re a Troma fan and live in or near Buffalo, New York, this story’s for you! The Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Festival is hosting the New York State premiere of Return to Return to Nuke ‘Em High aka Vol. 2, the second half of Lloyd Kaufman’s two-film sequel to the company’s cult classic Nuke ‘Em High.

The festival held the world premiere of the first reboot two years ago, and Return to Return to Nuke ‘Em High aka Vol. 2 had its world premiere at Cannes. The series deals with students battling mutant monsters, oppressive authority figures, sexual urges, and good taste at a contaminated high school.

Buffalo Dreams 2017 runs for 10 days (Friday, November 3rd, through Sunday, November 12th) at Dipson’s Eastern Hills Cinema and at the Screening Room Cinema Cafe.

“Buffalo Dreams is proud to continue its association with Lloyd and the Troma team,” says festival co-founder Gregory Lamberson. “The premiere for Return to Nuke ‘Em High Vol. 1 was the craziest in Buffalo history! Lloyd shot his last three films, including Poultrygeist, in Buffalo-Niagara, making Western New York the Tromaville-away-from-Tromaville. We’ve recognized Lloyd and his wife, Pat Sweeney Kaufman, for their important contributions to our local film industry; and we’re thrilled to present the epic conclusion to this legendary franchise on the big screen at the Eastern Hills Cinema.”

Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Festival previously announced it will host the world premiere of 666pm, the new horror comedy directed by Jim Klock, who co-directed last year’s audience pleasing Massacre on Aisle 12.

The festival’s mission is to present the best independent films from around the world in the genres of action, animation, documentary, drama, fantasy, horror, sci-fi, and thriller.┬áLast year Lamberson and his partner, Chris Scioli, integrated Buffalo Dreams Family Film Festival, spotlighting young student, family, and children’s films; and this year the pair will launch the Lois Weber Award in recognition of excellence by female filmmakers, named after the first female filmmaker in the US. Author Jeff Strand will judge the Unproduced Screenplay Competition.

The Late Deadline for micro-short, short, short feature, feature, and screenplay competitions is August 26th, via FilmFreeway and Withoutabox. Sponsors for Buffalo Dreams so far include Buffalo Comic-Con, Earplug Podcast Network, Ominous Press, Slab Pro, Sleeping Giant Collectibles, Thursday Night Terrors, and WBBZ-TV.
