2nd Annual Les Femmes Underground International Film Fest Casts its Spell on San Diego
Les Femmes Underground International is a film festival centered on the subversive, unique, and innovative. LeFUFF showcases artists from all walks of life creating work that redefines the manner in which women are represented in mainstream cinema. For the fest’s second year, it moves from Los Angeles to San Diego, and things kick off at 2:00 PM PT on September 2nd in the Digital Gym Media Arts Center and wrap up around 10:00 PM PT.
About LeFUFF 2017:
We invite you to join us as we premiere our Second Annual Festival at the Digital Gym Cinema in San Diego, where we will be collaborating with local film festivals, such as the San Diego Latino Film Festival and Horrible Imaginings. Les Femmes Underground International Film Festival (LeFUFF) is the ONLY traveling festival that showcases exclusively feminist experimental art and narrative work.
Let us lead you into the underground world of feminist inter-sectional art, music, and celluloid fantasies. LeFUFF invites you to take a cinematic adventure that destroys the meaning of mundane with its unique programming. Les Femmes Underground International features films from over 30 different countries ranging in genres from Documentary, Experimental, Narrative, Horror, Female Sexuality, and our own concoction… Psychotropic.
This particular programming will merge women using occult ideology and notions of the word “witch” as a way to indoctrinate equality, independence, and empowerment.
Spellbinding is guaranteed!
The horror shorts block was judged by Christine Schindel, a Horrible Imaginings programmer, and here’s the schedule. If you plan to head out to the Digital Gym (2921 El Cajon Boulevard in San Diego), be sure to RSVP on the Facebook Event Page after getting tickets here.
