2008 Minneapolis Underground Film Festival: Call For Entries

By Mike Everleth ⋅ March 27, 2008

So, there’s a new kid on the block this year. The Minneapolis Underground Film Festival is going to have its first ever year this coming August 29-31. This isn’t to be confused with the Twin Cities Underground, which will be held in the same town in the same month. Deadlines are below with the first one coming up quickly. Plus, entry fees shoot up dramatically:

Early Deadline:
April 1

Entry Fee: $9

Regular Deadline:
May 1

Entry Fee: $24

Stragglers Deadline:
June 1

Entry Fee: $43

If you’re wondering what they’re looking for, here’s their longish mission statement:

The Minneapolis Underground Film Festival the premier film festival in Minneapolis, Minnesota. We are dedicated to bringing you the most underground films from around the world. Have you submitted to other festivals only to be turned down? Have you wondered why? It is because they are completely corrupt and they are full of collusion. They already know which films are going to get in and guess what it’s not yours they prey on the dreams and aspirations of young talented filmmakers like you so they can make a fool out of you.

The Minneapolis Underground Film Festival is not like that. We take your work seriously and we will watch it with respect. So please submit your film. It will be seen and respected and admired.

The Minneapolis Underground Film Festival is dedicated to finding the hidden and showing the world the true meaning of cinema. Does your film exhibit the traits of the underground? If so Minneapolis is the place for your underground film. Show your film, submit your film to the Minneapolis Underground Film Festival it is the best decision you will ever make.

It may take a fist fight to see if MUFF or TCUFF is the “premier” underground fest in town, but I wish the new guys luck. For more info, please visit the official MUFF site.
