Hang in there Loonachic. I attend many festivals and most film festivals wait till the last minuit to post their schedules. Look for “Satan Was A Lady” directed by Doris Wishman (self proclaimed Godmother of motion picture pulp). It stars Honey Lauren (Men Cry Bullets),Edge (TRANS). Go to CUFF, you’ll have a great time. Good luck, Edge

We are saddened that our film entry , “The Takers” will not show at the 2001 fest.We realize that our film is not controversial or disturbing , so it may not qualify for the “underground” label.I find myself questioning the alledgedly radical nature of many films I have viewd that do carry that label.Many are part of an ‘underground mainstream’ , strictly following the formuli of dealing with some perversion ,obsession,or blasphemy’ in order to stand out amoung other films.Must a film be controversial or disturbing to qualify as underground? I love blasphemy as well as the next man , however these ingredients have gelled into a restrictive mindset which has turned into a stultifying new conservatism that narrows the scope of topics that can be dealt with in independent film.Is it possible to make an independent film that is mainstream in style and subject matter? The indie production values will keep it from mainstream access , and the mainstream subject matter will prevent it from being accepted by the underground.In between these two points lies a whole realm of topics that can’t be covered by the independent film maker.Do all independent filmmakers obsess about decadance and entropy , or can any of them just tell a good story? Must all underground artists be tortured , misunderstood, sociopaths?Are any of them happy, well adjusted craftsmen ? Where does it say that indie films need to be small and claustrophobic? Many independent filmmakers utilize sparse or neutral sets for ease of production and to keep costs down.Where are the large casts, detailed set design and lush locations.Do these values disqualify a film from the underground cachet? Alledgedly ‘shocking’ moviemking has been with us since the dawn of film,and has always contained the same subject matter through the decades.How radical is that? We in the underground have all experianced and enjoyed plenty of kinky sex, drugs and rock and roll and seeing more of same on screen is usually boring.I tried to make a film that was scandalously radical to YOUR standards , incorporating all the elements of a sixties saturday matinee popcorn movie and dealing with subjects such as honesty , character and responsibility.KISS OF DEATH I guess.Believe me , I am no conservative moral crusader and our next film will be a more traditional approach to the underground(re-read that phrase!)but there is nothing radical in film today, below or above ground! Pretending that there is is self-delusion. In its way , The Takers IS a radical film , for directly challenging underground conventions.Underground festivals SHOULDN’T HAVE CONVENTIONS! We very much respect the work you do at CUFF, and understand your decision.The film is now eight minutes shorter after test audiances and we hope to resubmit it next year, along with our new project currently in the works(a bloody ’40s gangster flick).We are a local Chicago troupe and you will be hearing more from us in the future.I would welcome any correspondance from your board or staff regarding this issue or our film,’THE TAKERS’ JACK HAMMOND dir.

Greetings from Bloodshot Pictures / Upside Downtown, I thought that it couldn’t hurt to drop you all a note, and say “howdy”. I recently submitted our latest short, “The Interview”, to you guys, and just wanted to follow up AND inform you about our newest film, “The Tunnel” (starring Lloyd Kaufman and Mark Borchardt!), shooting August 3-6, 2001 in Dallas! I really and truly pray/hope that you get some enjoyment (and perhaps a certain sense of renal failure!) out of “The Interview”! If you’d like, you can go FILM THREAT’S web page, and look up their review of the film. Seriously! Also, let me know if there’s any thing else u need, ok? CUFF skewers the rest! I love your fest, and hope your underground/avant-garde tastes are ready! “THE INTERVIEW” has (to date) screened at the 2000 Fort Worth Film Festival, 2000 Deep Ellum Film Festival, 2001 Nodance Film Festival, 2001 Kansas City Filmmakers Jubilee… READ UP ON US… Best Wishes (and wash your dishes!), Ramzi Abed Writer Director Editor Bloodshot Pictures / Upside Downtown

Hi, Brian & “CUFF”! It’s me, -David “The Rock” Nelson. I noticed you guys will be at Cherybdis -I went there several wks. ago for the 1st time- it’s kind of cool. I gave a video copy of my latest work to Gina at “Cherybdis” that night. The movie is “Frankenstein Stalks”, starring myself in over 5 roles(actually “8”!), -w/a “cameo” appearance by Forrest J. Ackerman(“Forry”!), founding editor of “Famous Monsters of Filmland” mag. I finished editing it, ironically, on Boris Karloff’s 113th Birthday(Th., Nov.23rd, -only 4 days before my 44th birthday-Nov.27th-the same one as The Late-Great Bruce Lee & Jimi Hendrix! Anyway, maybe Gina or Gregor can show you some of my new movie, -if you want to, or if you have time, as I know you guys will be busy w/that show. In the mean time, take care! Also, I filmed a movie called “The Mummy Returns” in ’98, & Universal is about to release “their” version of “The Mummy Returns” this summer! -It’s funny how “The Rock”(wrestler) is the star, & it’s the same title as my movie(shot in ’98!)! -In fact, scenes of it (a 20-min. trailer)were shown to hundreds of people at The “Fright Vision” Convention-’99 & “Monster Bash-’99” Convention! -I do believe my idea, etc. was stolen & used for Universal’s version, & I wrote The President of Universal Pictures last week. I should get credit(name in credits), etc. for it. If Universal doesn’t give me my just due, I may go to court! “MANCOW” Muller, of Q-101 radio morning show, has expressed interest in this & wants me on his show to “contest” this fact(my movie idea, title ripped-off, along w/another “The Rock”! When you get a chance, please give me your feed-back on this, or any ideas, etc. Your “fiend”, David “The Rock” Nelson/”The Ed Wood of the 21st Century”! *P.S.-Did you guys hear me on “Mancow”? I’ve been on his radio show 4 times in the past 15 mths. & on his TV-show once(the radio show is mornings on Q-101, though his TV-show got cancelled, -probably because it was too “raunchy” for the censors).

charles wundt luling, texas I’m interested in making small budget 8mm films and learning about the production of such films. My ideas are simpleminded and cliche, but I’m going to start anyway and see what I can learn. I’d be interested in joining a club and helping others with their films.
John O’Malley Chicago, IL USA Writer-director Hassan Ildari’s debut feature, FACE OF THE ENEMY (1990), a political thriller sold at IFFM 1990 to INI Releasing for worldwide distribution.

Lekgotla Seru Gaborone, Botswana Hi!
Cuong loi Nanaimo, British columbia Canada I find this website to be one of the best i’ve seen in years…..there’s so much communication between each other…everyone seems to be in the same shoes i am …..they wanna do something …but they just need someone to help them….this is the site that has managed to connect all of us with the simple assistance of a keyboard and a phone line..this is GREAT i too am in the middle of my first project…and it is not easy…it’s not suppose to be that way. that’s what makes it so “yours” so unique that you don’t wanna stop even if you’ve gone over your 10 dls budget and your little brother is tired playing the tripod and wants to go out and play with his friends. I love this page..if you wanna chat or discuss film or anything else you know the address/////// Alex!

Kerry Weldon New York, NY USA Hello, my name is Robert Lacher and I am writing a Masters thesis at San Diego State University. In my thesis I am proposing various script models for short films. I am specifically interested in kinetic short films. Films that tell a story using kinetic action and motion. These films generally aren’t scripted with the usual master scene format. It is my goal to view these films, read the script and do an analysis as to how the script enabled the director and production crew to produce the film. Any information about films like this or filmmakers who make these types of films would be greatly appreciated. Any information I recieve will be used soley for the purpose of research for my graduate thesis. If you have any questions please ask. You can e-mail me at this address: or call me at 619-465-3578 Thank you very much.

Ben Morgan Cypress, Texas USA Your wedding video business has dried up. Your last “underground experimental mocumentary” did poor box office. Your dreams are dying. Time to fold up shop and sell the camera? Not if you are Monkey Pirates! John and Dan’s solution is to take a grant from a shady y2k cult and document Wickerman 2000, a sacrifice to Millennium. See the intrepid film makers delve deep into the world of Ambarii the Flesh Mother, and his followers, The Elect. Feel love burn and rise again from the ashes when the artists’ life partners make their own “forbidden” sacrifice. Watch in awe as a 20′ tall wicker colossus with a television in its head and a computer monitor in its stomach is prepared for sacrifice…or is it preparing you?

Sandy Lemen Chicago, Aw well another festival over – back to watching hollywood Sh#t – for the most part anyway! (Not that its all sh%t) Superstalet AD – what can i say – an awesome time – not so much a movie as an experience! And Elvis meets the beatles was a r-i-o-t too !! Still, the best movie of the Fest, for me at least was still ROCK OPERA. With WE ARE TRAFFIC and THE SEEDLING coming in at joint second places. Shame the lounge wasnt opened on the last night – maybe by next year there’ll be better organisation on that front. But hey guys, dont change the lounge – it was a great place to hang out in between movies and pick up freebies – especially indeed those little lighty pens – always want one of those. Now i can go watch movies and pretend i’m a reviewer – well actually i guess we all ARE reviewers just by being watchers.?

Melissa Elias Chicago, IL USA Its Tuesday: SO FAR SO GOOD!! High’s : HOLY MOUNTAIN (Especially the ending) WE ARE TRAFFIC – the vidoe with it (Pedalphiles) was pretty hot too – i want one of those messed up bikes! 🙂 MONKEY V’S ROBOT – what a combination of catchy little tune and hysterical film. DEEP AFRICA – apart from the ejaculating ET that is (Can i say Ejaculate in here 🙂 And Most Especially – ROCK OPERA!!!!!!!! – THAT MOVIE REALLY ROCKS IN THE BEST SENSE OF THE WORD – i never knew there were so many crazy ways of doin drugs 🙂 The low: MIGRATING FORMS – Didnt grab me at all – the sound quality was very poor and i felt the whole repetitive encounter thing could have been handled just as well in a 30 minute feature. Sorry to the director and all!! The festival lounge is pretty cool – best view in Chicago! Nothing better than scoping out a window spot and a beer and watching the world go by! (As i have done pretty much every night between movies so far) Three more days to go – i’m very eagerly anticipating SUPERSTARLET AD – that looks like quite a film.

S.H.Ebeling Royal Oak, MI Having finally made it last night to see Migrating Forms and Holy Mountain, I have to say that it is great to see some truly interesting, thought provoking film in such a large scale. The only comment I can make is that it would be incredible to extend the festival to two weeks so all of us who are not independently wealthy can have a better chance of seeing more of the films. Great work. You’ve all done Chicago proud in a time when the city resembling more a corporate playground than living up to its history of fostering creativity and original expression.

I’m just a begining film/art student and so i’m realy passionate about art and film work. I just recently started being interested in film, ’cause i’m actualy a painter/illustrator, but i can’t always seem to get my whole entire point into one frame. And ever since i was young, i loved claymation. I swore that that’s what i was going to grow up to do. I just forgot. I of coarse will never stop painting. I’ve never been to a film fest. Especialy in Idaho. But good luck everyone. I can’t wait ’till i get to goe to one & be in one. I’m not sure of the leaniancy of an under ground film fest as aposed to any other. Never the less, i’d still want to be a part. Sorry to have rambled on for so long. – keep in touch –

The team is made up of industry veterans who work for companies like CBS-TV and PBS. At the risk of sounding immodest, TMG/5 is our way of unlocking the talent we can’t use in our daily jobs. Although all of us have great jobs in the industry, we aspire for more and that drive has taken us to such a point where as we are celebrating the 2nd anniversary of our first independent production, “Different Worlds.” We are looking forward to the future with a new indie film due for production in the summer of 2000 entitled “The C-Shift.” Other films on our drawing board include “Who Is Jeremy Villegas?” and “Fayte.” All of these are productions we will make sure come to fruition some how, some way. In the meantime, on an individual level, I have enjoyed success as a freelance writer who has and continues to pitch story ideas to Star Trek: Voyager (UPN). All of the members of this team, collectively, have works into CBS, Paramount Pictures, and WB. With all of this going on, we still have a long way to go before we reach the summit of our journey. The secret to this group staying together for so long is that fact that we are artists and FAMILY as well. We look out for each other and offer support on each others indivudual projects even if there is no real stake in it for everyone on the team. I hope you’ll take some time and explore TMG/5 by exploring our website.

The human journey has just begun!

flesz I recieved some material from your main headquarters and was excited to see a website, but on entering it I was shocked to see a half clad woman and it isn’t the sign of the cross she is giving. What is with this. Not something I think the Blessed Mother or any of the saints would like to happen on to. And if it is supposed to be art, I don’t think so. I am disappionted at first sight with that page. Would someone

like to explain?

This collection of 13″x17″ oversized title/lobby cards from MX spans the years of 1935-1980. It contains the wealth and variety of tens of thousands of classic film titles from the US, Europe, Mexico and other Foreign Lands. 150,000 of these posters have been carefully sorted and cataloged into pertinent generic film categories: Abbott and Costello Animated Films Beatles Brigitte Bardot Bullfight Movie Posters CANTINFLAS Circus Movie Posters Clark Gable Clint Eastwood Comedy Stars—Marx, Chaplin, L&H, A&C, 3Stooge, etc Cowboy & Western Movie Posters Cult MX Wrestlers Disney Animation Disney Live Action Dope, Drugs, Narcs Elvis Presley Epoca de Oro—Mexican Films: 1940’s-1960’s Epoca de Oro—MX films—Spectacular School of Movie Poster Artists European Film Posters: France, Italy, Germany European Film Posters: Multi-National Productions Fernandel Film Noir Classics Frank Sinatra Gary Cooper Gladiator, Epic, Myth, Legend (Sword & Sandal) Gone With The Wind—THEATER DISPLAYS Great International Film Directors Hitchcock Film Posters Humphrey Bogart James Dean Japanese Films Jerry Lewis John Wayne Jungle Films Kubrick Film Posters Laurel and Hardy Lone Ranger, Roy Rogers, Hopalong, Gene Autry, Misc Cowboys Marilyn Monroe Marlon Brando Martial Arts Movie Posters—BLee, JChan, Misc Oriental Martial Arts Martin and Lewis Mexican Cinema—Epoca de Oro—11×14 lobby cards with photograph attached MX Film Posters—Comic & Caricature (Tin-Tan, Resortes, Capulina, etc) MX Film Posters—Cowboy Movies MX Film Posters—Sci-Fi, Horror, Fantasy MX Film Posters—Serials, 1940’s-1960’s One-sheet and larger odd-sized posters Rock & Roll, Adolescents, Bad Girls, Motorcycles, Hot Rods Ronald Reagan Russian Films Sam Fuller Film Posters Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror, Monster, Space—10,000 posters Sex Goddesses: Mansfield, Van Doren, Ekberg, Bardot, Monroe Sex, Drugs & Rock’n’Roll Soccer Movie Posters Spaghetti Westerns Sports Film Posters Superman, Batman, Capt America, Flash Gordon, Capt Marvel Tarzan, Jungle Jim, Bomba, Sabu, Jungle Vietnam Movie Posters Vintage Hollywood, 1940’s-1950’s—10,000 posters Zorro The graphics are stunning! They are all original and from the Major Film Studios, contemporaneous with each film’s release worldwide. However, these very special 13″x17″ posters have a much greater density of art and images than posters from any other country. Classic Illustrations, Drawings, Photographs, and Stills all laid out on each Film Poster. Melodramatic BALLYHOO (in Spanish, of course), and original Cast and Credits, and unique fonts for the Film’s title: all round out the overall design of each unique Movie Poster. Not only did Mexico have a grand and glorious Film Industry during their own ‘EPOCA DE ORO’ (Golden Age—1930’s-1960), but also the general population of Mexico had a much greater opportunity to see the entire spectrum of Films produced worldwide. Classic oldies from MGM and Warners and RKO; internationally famous directors like De Sica, Truffaut, Buñuel, Kurosawa, Fellini, Resnais, Ray (India); and lurid Cult Films from the worldwide vaults of Horror, Sci-Fi, Adolescent Exploitation, MX Wrestlers, Italian Westerns and Gladiator Epics, Martial Arts, Sex/Drugs/Rock&Roll, etc etc. The collection has been displayed and publicized worldwide via the Internet; and is available by appointment to Publishers, Galleries, Museums, and Serious Collectors. Samples of this vast collection can be seen: POSTERAZZI Box 33841 San Diego, CA 92163

Just wanted to thank you guys for putting together such a mind boggling body of work! Your gracious hosting abilities left me energized and inspired. Chicago is AMAZING. Except for the youth hostel I stayed at for 1 night—my roomate was a semi-retarded 30 something guy vising from Spokane to see the Library. He sported underwear with the ass and crotch ripped out during the morning hours, and a boy scout uniform during the day. When I asked him why he wore the boy scout uniform he replied, “Cuz it makes me feel like I’m in the Army”— There’s a story there somewhere. I got a date set to record Larry Flynt and hopefully I’ll see you all next year with “Jesse Helms is Cleaning up America”…thanks again for such a

great experience.

You guys rocked. Thank you so much for a wicked time! Everyone was terribly friendly with us ‘canadians’; but Mike you were the best host, ever. Thanks to all of the staff for a swell time, hope to see you all again. Patrick (Harrison, that is) would say the same but he is already in no man’s land. And say, when will the Awards be on line? Keep up the good work. Sincerely,

CUFF 1998 was fabulous, funny, frightening, and fantastic all at the same time. I was my first entire fest, and my girlfriend and I had a blast. Kudos to EVERY SINGLE film we saw, but especially LAST BROADCAST, DECLINE PART 3, MEN CRY BULLETS and VIRTUE. Some absolutely amazing stuff. Thank you so much for selling Zedd and Out of the Loop vids. Being suburban kids, we can’t find that shit anywhere. Extra special thanks for THE FABULOUS STAINS. Couldn’t get much

better. Hope next year will be just as much fun.

Hi. I thought you might want to know that a lot of text on your Web site is invisible to some users. For example, the guestbook page is mostly blank. The HTML on the page sets a white background, but does not set a foreground (text) color. So browsers will default to the foreground color that the user has selected under Windows. If the user has set Windows to display white text on a dark background, your pages will override the dark background with white, but then leave white text on it. The solution is easy: Just explicitly set the text color on your page to something dark. I sent a similar message to the company that designed your site, and their own pages suffer from the same problem. Regards,

Gavin Stokes

I cannot believe it! I just picked up a New City paper and found the film festival insert. Looking through all of the various films and I come across “Ladies & Gentlemen, the Fabulous Stains.” It’s been at least 14 years since I saw this film, it was on a show called “Night Flight” that came on the USA cable network. Anyway, I’m working on the day of the exclusive filming of this great, which I was just thinking about yesterday. Is there any possible way for me to get this on video, perhaps at Facets Multimedia. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. E-mail me if so!

Jeesus, some of these movies are a insult to film making. Tarantino rip off crime films or some movie about a guy watching his penis floating in a toilet bowl while a chicken crows outside. Like a half ass Ingmar Bergman. How about reeeal talent like a Remy Belvaux, a Joel and Ethan Coen a Neil Labute. I think a lot of filmakers need to go and watch Polanski’s Macbeth and see genius at work. Until some of my work comes out I guess you’ll all have to languish in the doldrums of the Gen X filmaker.

I COULDN’T BELIEVE MY EYES! I went to the Premier of “AFTERBIRTH” by Paul Rinehard, I was shocked and yet grotesquely pleased by this disturbing film. I work with this “off-center fellow” I never would have imagined him producing a film of this nature or quality. I guess there is a deep dark in everyone, but to bring it out into public (GEEEZE)! I’ll never think of Paul the same. He is one of the Greats in Green Bay to chip away at our conservativeness. I’ll definately look forward to his next creation and hunt for past tapes!

My girlfriend and I were sitting around the dinner table talking about a plot for a screenplay, where some guy gets in a chat room with some white supremacists, and just goofing, starts dissing his black neighbor, with whom he’s actually friends. In fact, this guy is white and is married to a black woman. Somehow, the clan gets a fix on his location and figures out which apartment his neighbor lives in. We see the neighbor inside his apartment reading Nietzsche and listening to classical music, but to the outside world, his street fashions make him appear to be a brotha from the hood. He’s brutally murdered and the white guy becomes a prime suspect to the police, because the supremacist group has a plant who has read the rantings about
