Storyline

A verité-satire, The Festival is an ensemble comedy, told from the perspective of fictional IFC documentarian, Cookie. Cookie's subject: Rufus Marquez, a quixotic young director embarking on his virgin voyage to the prestigious Mountain United Film Festival (MUFF.) The Film is The Unreasonable Truth of Butterflies. The goal is a distribution deal. And the pressure is on. Rufus - unprepared for the excess of schmoozing activities - maneuvers an assortment of pretentious filmmakers, salivating distributors and smile-for-the-camera festival VIPs. The problem is, no one has seen his film - and the more no one sees it, the hotter the buzz becomes. As her bosses close in, Cookie loses her objectivity and Rufus loses his film - literally - as his masterpiece goes missing. Written by Anonymous

Amazing!!!!
9 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have been watching The Festival on IFC for a couple of weeks now. The show is really brilliant. Everybody should check it out you wont be disappointed. If you are into film festivals you will most definitely enjoy this series. It's witty and so smart, a typical show you expect to see on IFC. I love this network because they have shows that are so different from the dull and boring reality shows on the other networks. Actually tonight 9/9 on IFC at 8pm is a Film Festival. Check it out, let me know your thoughts. Also IFC has Greg The Bunny and Hopeless Studios, both are absolutely hilarious. It is one of the funniest blocks of television that I have watched in sometime.
