The festival will include two screenings. First, there will be a short film program at 7:30 p.m.; followed at 10:00 p.m. by the world premiere of the exciting new anthology film Betamax, which features new work by Los Angeles underground filmmaking legend Damon Packard.
The shorts lineup will include the U.S. premiere of the latest film by longtime Journal favorite Brian Lonano, Crow Hand!!!, which is bloody and fantastic; and Mike Olenick‘s visual epic Red Luck, which won the Best Looking award at the 2014 Chicago Underground Film Festival and the Best Experimental Film at the 2015 Slamdance.
Other shorts include a blazingly fun biopic of Hollywood icon Russ Meyer,
