The HSDFI goes underground

The Hot Springs Documentary Film Institute is teaming with Low Key Arts to put on the First Annual Arkansas Underground Festival on July 17-19 at the Malco in Hot Springs. The idea, according to a recent release, is to showcase films too bizarre for mainstream festivals.

Dan Anderson, newly hired as technical director and outreach program assistant, is programing the fest.

"For the most part, the film world is still very narrow, very closed minded,” he said in the news release. “The most innovative and radical film and video art rarely gets seen by the general public. Here is a chance for people to see what is being made on the fringe.”

The schedule hasn't been released, but the three days of the festival will be divided into three themes: surrealist, which'll showcase the work of George Melies and Salvador Dali; pop cultural and outsider film, which'll have film by Warhol and William Burroughs and experimental, with special attention paid to Stan Brackhage.

I'll post more info when I've got it.
