If it’s the end of August, that means it’s time for Peaches Christ’s summer-long cult movie screening series, Midnight Mass, to wrap up with the wild and wooly San Francisco Underground Short Film Festival.

This is a one-night-only event showing, of course, only short films. The shorts are all by S.F. filmmakers and the screening begins promptly at Midnight on Friday, August 22 at the Bridge Theater at 3010 Geary Blvd.

Personally, I’m not familiar with any of the shorts playing, but it sounds like it’ll be a pretty freaky night, but who would expect less from Peaches Christ. Here’s the lengthy lineup:
