The Melbourne Underground Film Festival is ready to pounce again — and this time with a vengeance! This will make it the 11th edition of what’s surely the most well-established, and kick ass, transgressive film festival in the world. The official dates of when MUFF will terrorize the world again haven’t been set yet, but the fest is currently open and ready for submissions.

For submission form and details, visit the official MUFF website. There’s only one deadline, too:

Final Deadline:
May 15
$45 (AUD)
$35 (US)
$30 (EURO)

MUFF had a fantastic year in 2009, so they’re looking to expand their offerings this year. Devilish plans are already underway securing locations that are friendly to a little nasty subverting of the Australian cinematic norm. But, that doesn’t mean you have to be Australian to submit. This is an international festival looking for deranged flicks from all over the globe.

Several of the films that screened at the 10th MUFF have gone onto great success. Dominic Deacon‘s award-winning Bad Habits has recently secured DVD distribution in the U.S. Andrew Scarano’s documentary on Australian film, Into the Shadows, recently enjoyed a successful theatrical run in its home country. And, most happily, MUFF director Richard Wolstencroft‘s fabulous The Beautiful and Damned is set to be released theatrically and on DVD in Australia in 2010.

MUFF 11 is looking for both shorts and features. Check out last year’s MUFF lineup to get a good feel for what types of freaky flicks they’re looking for. It’s really good to hear that the fest is already very pumped and enthusiastic about stirring up trouble once again Down Under.
