2012 TromaDance: Official Lineup

The TromaDance film festival makes it into puberty with their 13th annual edition and you won’t want to miss where they’ve grown some hair on May 4-5 at Asbury Lanes in Asbury Park, New Jersey. It’s two days of hormone-fueled short films, voice-changing features and a star-studded panel discussion.

Two features will be screening at the fest: Steven Kostanski‘s VHS throwback action sci-fi horror flick Manborg and the Trost brothers’ dance-fight video game frenzy The Fp.

The rest of TromaDance is stuffed to the gills with disturbing, grotesque and just downright freaky short films, including Greg Hanson‘s garbage disposal love story Sinkhole and Aaron Zegher‘s ghostly I See a Light. Short film blocks are broken down by theme, such as “Monsters,” “Zombies,” “Madness” and an absolutely not-for-kids “Saturday Morning Cartoons” collection.

Plus, on Saturday evening, there will be a panel discussion on the marketing

2011 San Francisco Underground Film Festival (Fall Edition): Official Lineup

Peaches Christ does the unthinkable and returns with a second edition of the wild San Francisco Underground Short Film Festival in 2011! And this new event is a double blow-out with two back-to-back programs of shorts in one scintillating evening.

The fun starts on Nov. 19 at 7:30 p.m. at The Victoria Theatre with the more genteel “Act 1″ block of shorts, compared to the sexy and ultra-violent programming of “Act 2: Shorts After Dark” that begins at 10:10 p.m.

However, with “Act 1″ featuring Waylon Bacon‘s gory and disturbing — and absolutely hilarious — Help Wanted, there’s plenty of outrageousness packed into that first program, so be sure to not miss any of it.

And if 33 short films packed into one night isn’t enough, the entire evening will kick off with Peaches and her co-host Sam Sharkey performing in a live rock show.

The full film lineup is below, but
