2010 Montreal Underground Film Festival: Official Lineup

The fifth annual Montreal Underground Film Festival will be three nights of outrageous short films running on May 13-15. You got yer horror, your sci-fi, your rebellious youth, your experimental animation, films from Germany, the U.K., the U.S. Israel, France and homegrown filmmakers right in Canada. Yeah, it’s got a little bit of everything.

A couple of films of particular note to look out for are Joseph Christiana’s super scary horror short The Nightmare, about a young boy’s descent into an increasingly maddening world. Plus, the always awesome Leslie Supnet has two of her animated films in the fest: The somewhat narratively inclined Fair Trade and the purely experimental sun moon stars rain.

Dark side of cinema at the Pollygrind

In an event described as "a B-movie jamboree of awesomeness", the Polly Staffle Grindhouse Fest - informally known as the Pollygrind - launches this Wednesday until May 16 at the Sci-Fi Center (2520 State Street) in Las Vegas.

Thirteen films and more than 31 trailers, music videos and shorts will play the PollyGrind, described by as "one of the biggest events for grindhouse and trash film lovers this year."

Organiser Chad Clinton Freeman said: "The festival is being put on in the same spirit as old-school grindhouse cinema - no funding and creatively using whatever is available.

"With that said, I think the line-up turned out rather nicely and I think everyone that comes out will enjoy what William Powell's Sci-Fi Center and the PollyGrind have to offer."

Five features will have their world premieres at the event. John R. Hand's sci-fi arthouse film Scars of Youth (pictured above
