2011 San Francisco Underground Film Festival (Fall Edition): Official Lineup

Film festival poster featuring Peaches Christ as a Barbie doll

Peaches Christ does the unthinkable and returns with a second edition of the wild San Francisco Underground Short Film Festival in 2011! And this new event is a double blow-out with two back-to-back programs of shorts in one scintillating evening.

The fun starts on Nov. 19 at 7:30 p.m. at The Victoria Theatre with the more genteel “Act 1” block of shorts, compared to the sexy and ultra-violent programming of “Act 2: Shorts After Dark” that begins at 10:10 p.m.

However, with “Act 1” featuring Waylon Bacon‘s gory and disturbing — and absolutely hilarious — Help Wanted, there’s plenty of outrageousness packed into that first program, so be sure to not miss any of it.

And if 33 short films packed into one night isn’t enough, the entire evening will kick off with Peaches and her co-host Sam Sharkey performing in a live rock show.

The full film lineup is below, but for more info on the fest and to buy advance tickets, please visit their official website.
