The Bearded Child Film Festival will be hosting a screening of
weird/underground contemporary films at the Arkansas Underground Film
Festival, June 18-20, 2010, in Hot Springs Nat'l Park, Arkansas. I'm looking
for weird folk-art film/video of any genre, and ideally work that has not
been recognized at festivals or has had few public showings. I'm also
looking for visual performance artists that may live near or be able to
travel to central Arkansas.
This post is mainly geared towards recommendations, but would certainly
welcome submissions from anyone who may fit this mold. There is no fee or
entry form, but please supply as much information as possible with a
submitted DVD or VHS.
"ARKUFF" is a festival that mixes contemporary underground work with that of
classic/historical underground artists. We will be screening the early films
of David Lynch, Kenneth Anger and others in historical context. Last year we
showed work by George Melies, Oscar Fischinger, Stan Brakhage, Andy Warhol,
George Kuchar and many more.
