“Underground films often face the issue of not falling into a category which can make them hard to promote or do anything with really. At the Medusa Film Fest, we are here to put these movies on blast. They need to be seen and they will!” – Medusa Underground Film Festival Founder Heidi Moore
There’s a new fest on the block, and she’s set to make her presence felt in a big way in 2019! The inaugural Medusa Underground Film Festival will take over Sin City Beginning Saturday, January 12th—just don’t expect what happens in Vegas to stay there! The fest is dedicated to female filmmakers and will include the Vegas premiere of Re-agitator: Revenge of the Parody plus over 50 short films selected from 11 countries that honor underground filmmaking art from creators like Emma Dark, Tristan Risk, Sophia Cacciola, Brooke Candy, Nicole Goode, Toy Lei, Dionne Copeland, and Tonja Atomic.
