Hello, I am part of a group of independent filmmakers, editors, sound designers, and composers who are in the process of opening a video rental store in San Francisco, CA. We wish to feature independent films in a festival format, and would like to be able to reference the films we carry to the international film festivals they were part of. This will add a unique angle to our store and help raise awareness regarding independant film, the people who make it and the festivals that support it. Could you please send me more information regarding your film festival and any festival screening lists, past or present, so that we may include the available films and any information regarding their festival history in this featured area of our store…and create links from our web site to yours if desirable? Thank You…Gregory Lenczycki please respond to : Gregory Lenczycki 504 Oak St. San Francisco CA 94102 415.522.1580

Just a quick note to let you know about Colloquial Films, a non-profit Chicago based film production company that can help first time directors and producers as fiscal agent to approved applicants who want to raise their own non-profit production funds. This allows those giving you money to take an up front tax deduction rather than waiting to see if your project turns an uncertain profit. We welcome inquiries which can be directed to me at Have a wonderful festival. I hope to be there.

Avant garde cinema can be horribly repressive and insightful all at the same time- that’s the ultimate beauty of it all! I plan to submit the first film I ever made- a little animation job that is at times INTENTIONALLY out of focus….yeah, that’s it. Just kidding. Underground films are about spirit- fuck professionalism. To an extent, of course. Fight the power. I fucking love Chicago!

John Waters signed my back and I had it tattooed on in pink and black. It looks very cool and I am damn proud. I love the website also—–There are still a few interesting people left in this cesspool of a world.

I’m an independent filmaker just starting out. I’ve barley begun writing my first script; But have worked on different films as an extra or production assistant. I’ve always been interested in films to the tune of directors like: Oliver Stone, John Waters, David Lych, Stanley Kubrick, a little Tarintino, ect. It’s always comforting to know there is a population of freaks out there that haven’t settled for Hollywood Pop and this country’s rating system. It’s also comforting to know that there is a chance to make a living doing what I love, rather thn my current corporate patsy position in society. Thanks to the organizers

of CUFF for supporting the risk takers!

I just moved here ( S. suburbs) from Tucson, where I lived within a 2 mi radius of several art house film houses and video stores. In Az there are several film fests AND the HARKINS THEATER chain which shows only independent and foreign films! This i s serious withdrawals! I have to drive an hour to get to the city and park $$$$$, Then I have to hope I don’t get attacked to or from the theater walking aroung at night. Why is everything in the City!!?? Why is there no major art house theater chain o ut here, like Harkins!!??? Are there no cultured people in the suburbs!? Underground film is the BEST!!!!!

I’d like to think that the work I did with Chris Gore on Film Threat and Film Threat Video Guide in some way inspired the lunatics behind CUFF — but now they are the ones inspiring me. Underground film will always exist as long as interested parties c an form a sense of community and help generate an audience for the work that the filmmakers sweat, suffer and bleed over. That was one of our goals with FTVG — and we were somewhat successful. I was at the first CUFF years ago and found it to be not only a great UNDERGROUND fest, but a great fest PERIOD — simply because people like Jay and Brian really care about what they’re doing. I’ve sort of left the underground world since FTVG ended last year and I went on to work for American Cinematographer maga zine ( Did I sell out? Did I turn my back on the kinds of films I really love? Sort of — at least in the sense that I now have a dreaded “day job.” But REAL independent cinema — not this “indie” crap we’re now force-fed through the likes of Miramax and Sundance — is what I will always love and admire — and CUFF is helping to provoke that kind of filmmaking. Thanks guys, and I hope to finally make it back next year.

I went to CUFF 96 and saw AFFLICTION. It was the most disturbing film I have ever seen. I hve really experienced sickness during a film, but when I saw AFFLICTION, I was constantly feeling nauseous. I never thought that seeing someone vomit on a bible and cross would be considered a “breather” compared to the rest of the film. Keep up tha good work. Can’t wait to see the lineup this year. I hope I’m on it. Love,

Hmmm. The Zedd interview was interesting, specially since I never really got a chance to speak with him about serious shit. He used to drop into the Fangoria offices once in a while, but my co-editor Dave Everitt was a stauch right-wing conservative who used to get really annoyed by Nick’s presence. The atmosphere wasn’t really conducive, you know? Funny thing is, Everitt’s parents were old-fashioned Marxists, and now I learn that Nick’s dad was post office functionary who helped prosecute

Henry Miller’s works! Haw! Explains a lot…
