2008 Arizona Underground Film Festival: Award Winners
The first ever Arizona Underground Film Festival, which was just held this past weekend on Oct. 17-19, gave out a slew of awards to several feature films and shorts.
Topping the list, of course, is Joshua von Brown‘s Altamont Now. This film deserves every award it can get its bloody punk rock hands on, I tell you. Including Arizona, the film also played at two other festivals this past week and will be screening in NYC next week. I’ll have the full details about that soon.
Also winning an award is an Underground Film Journal favorite, Excision by Richard Bates Jr., which I just raved about in this compilation of Spooky Movie Film Festival reviews.
So, special congrats to Josh, Richard and Marc, but really congratulations to all the winners:
