Rescued from the jaws of limbo, the Denver Underground Film Festival comes roaring back to life for three days of short films and one intense feature-length documentary. The fest runs Nov. 11-13 at the Unitarian Society of Denver.

The feature doc screening on the fest’s last night is Iconoclast, Larry Wessel‘s epic profile of musician and artistic rabble-rouser Boyd Rice.

The rest of the fest is an eclectic mix of short films, including programs devoted to contemporary Spanish and Canadian cinema, plus a look back at profiles of Andy Warhol caught on film by Jonas Mekas and Stephen Dwoskin.


Some mind-blowing short films to look out for are Jaimz Asmundson‘s stunning portrait of his artist father, C. Graham Asmundson, The Magus and Greg Hanson & Casey Regan‘s ass-kicking nunsploitation flick, Thy Kill Be Done.
