OPENING NIGHT: Under a Kaleidoscope by Addison Heath

A soldier who has been fighting a long war is driven mad because he no longer believes in any purpose or righteous truth behind the killing. He comes to a surreal world looking for his and only love from his youth, believing she will rescue him from his demons. On the road to Edge City he encounters two seductive spree killers who oppose his efforts to find his love and the redemption he desperately seeks.

 

MUFF NEU:

8 of the best films submitted to the festival, produced over the past year by local and international indie/guerilla filmmakers.

 

SPECIAL EVENT: The Second Coming Vol 1 by Richard Wolstencroft

After announcing itself as THE SECOND COMING VOLUME 1 and presenting a quote from the WB Yeats poem of 1899, ‘The Wind Among The Reeds’, a man (Michael Tierney) picks himself up off the dirt floor of a barren landscape and begins to walk. An electronic soundtrack pulsates ominously. Unable to get a lift while hitchhiking, the man turns to the sky to bellow the eternal existential question, “What do you want me to do?” He answers himself by conducting magic ceremony 777 in front of a small blackened winged-demon, all the while invoking the second coming.

 

FAKESHEMP.NET DOUBLE FEATURE

Programmed by film critic Glen Cochrane of fakeshemp.net and featuring exclusive video intros by directors Albert Puyn and Shane Ryan.

 

BEST OF THE REST:

A retrospective program of 4 great features and one short film by directors John Fox, Daniel Armstrong, Andrew Leavold and Travis Bain

 

MINI MUFF:

A showcase of various short films from around the world, curated by Hussein Khoder and Reilly Archer-Whelan

 

CLOSING NIGHT: Sizzler '77 by Timothy Spanos

An inner city tale of 2 detectives on the trail of a depraved killer stalking prostitutes through the streets of 1977 Melbourne.
