Three Nights of Radical Underground Film

The Wellington Underground Film Festival Dedicates Three Nights to Radical Underground Film



Flying In Formation, by Linh Duong.


Fans of original, thought-provoking cinema are in for a treat May 15 - 17, thanks to the second year of the Wellington Underground Film Festival (WUFF), an event celebrating the best in experimental lmmaking from New Zealand and abroad.

The three-day festival will showcase a diverse collection of 75, mostly single-author, lms that range from half-minute colourful experimental pieces to a half-hour silent lm shot with Super-8.

The programme includes a lm narrated by the black box recorder Ouroboros A2M37, an animation about what happens to a memory if you chase it too much, a geometric synthesis of abstract bodies – screened along with dozens of other creative and moving lms.

Festival organizer Rosie Rowe explains the factors that dene underground filmmaking: “The lack of money, equipment, resources and sometimes even technical skills expresses an attitude and ethos you can’t nd in the dominant narrative form. This year, we’re excited to present a programme representing 58 artists from 17 countries. Our primary focus, though, remains on providing a platform for New Zealand underground lmmakers, who comprise 30% of the 2014 festival, and the cultivation of a local audience for radical lmmaking.”

WUFF will take place May 15 - 17 at The New Zealand Film Archive, 84 Taranaki Street, Wellington.
