2010 Montreal Underground Film Festival: Official Lineup

Montreal Underground Film Festival

The fifth annual Montreal Underground Film Festival will be three nights of outrageous short films running on May 13-15. You got yer horror, your sci-fi, your rebellious youth, your experimental animation, films from Germany, the U.K., the U.S. Israel, France and homegrown filmmakers right in Canada. Yeah, it’s got a little bit of everything.

A couple of films of particular note to look out for are Joseph Christiana‘s super scary horror short The Nightmare, about a young boy’s descent into an increasingly maddening world. Plus, the always awesome Leslie Supnet has two of her animated films in the fest: The somewhat narratively inclined Fair Trade and the purely experimental sun moon stars rain.
