2007 Montreal Underground Film Festival: Call For Entries

By Mike Everleth ⋅ January 23, 2007

Montreal Underground Film Festival

So, I don’t know how long their call has been open for the Montreal Underground Film Festival, but I just spotted it tonight:

Deadline: April 2, 2007

Entry is FREE!

The festival will run May 17-19 this year and this will be only their second year. But, what are they looking for? First, here’s their mandate:

MUFF celebrates and promotes low-budget filmmakers and those who challenge the boundaries of mainstream Hollywood and the conventional film aesthetic attitude. We encourage you to confront your artistic freedom, through the experimentation of filmmaking and art production, making the world a more exciting, challenging place to live.

No, but what exactly are they looking for? There’s a full list on the guidelines page, but here’s an excerpt of some of their accepted genres cuz I thought it was funny (my favorite is the last one):

Unknown, alternative, mysterious, HARDCORE, avant-garde, novel, private, radical, resistant, revolutionary, subversive, GORE, clandestine, unbowed, VIDEO ART, cloaked, unconventional, undercover, ANIMATION, buried, hermetical, subterranean, SUSPENSE, cadaverous, underfoot, illegitimate, DOCUMENTARY, bootleg, EXPERIMENTAL, shady, abstruse, covert, buried, clandestine, covered, DOCUDRAMA, cryptic, DOCUTRAUMA

You know where to go to enter.
