New England Underground Film Festival to be Held on Campus Oct. 5
The New England Underground Film Festival, a celebration of the best of underground cinema, will have its third annual presentation on Saturday, Oct. 5, from noon to 6 p.m. in Wilde Auditorium.
General admission is $10, and admission for students with school ID is $5.
The New England Underground Film Festival will offer a line-up of provocative short films and feature-length productions. Among the highlights in this year’s festival is a rare public screening of the long-lost 1922 animated film Mechanical Doll, produced by the Fleischer Studios and starring the beloved character Koko the Clown.
This year’s festival will also include four films from Connecticut directors: Meriden-based Jared Marmitt’s Common Misconception, Middletown-based Kelly DiMauro’s Protector of the Kingdom, New Haven-based Stephen Dest’s My Brother Jack and Woodbury-based Kieran Valla's Hangdog. Massachusetts is also represented in the festival with three films: Luke Bittel and Fred Warren’s Some Assembly Required, Paul Turano’s Not Clear Cut and Michael Legge’s Monochromia.
