Missed It: 2008 Miami Underground Film Festival

Miami Underground Film Festival

Well, I guess the 2008 underground film festival season officially started back on March 5-9 when the Miami Underground Film Festival held their most recent edition. I missed all news about this coming up. That’s why things are underground — you miss some things once in awhile.

Kind of pointless to put up the official schedule like a normally do at this point. So first, I’m going to list this year’s award winners, then just list what else screened sans my normally witty and pithy descriptions. (Ok, more pithy than witty.) Here are the winners, then:

Best Actor
Oscar Diaz – Full Circle, Mysteries of the Opposite Sex

Best Actress
Patricia Rae – P.J., dir. Russ Emanuel

Best Feature
Under the Snow, dirs. Candela Figueira and Maitena Muruzabal

Best Documentary

The Night in the Life of Doris Dolores, dir. Bob Moricz

Here’s what also screened. Director names added where I could find one on the MUFF site. And I’m really glad to see Confusions of an Unmarried Couple in the list.
