The Mondo Cult Variety Showcase
"Only Hell Has Better Films" - everyone, after they see Mondo Cult Film Variety Showcase
From the people behind of Etheria Film Night comes the brand new Mondo Cult Film Variety Showcase. Combining the ideas behind Etheria Film Night’s's crazy short film series Women Underground and mondo film fan staple Mondo Cult Magazine, Mondo Cult is a monthly screening series at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, California that Variety Showcases the best new underground, surreal, crazy, experimental, obscene, absurd, rule-breaking, and outlaw films from around the world. We want the films that have trouble fitting into any one genre, that have trouble finding a home in mainstream film festivals, and that leave your audiences' minds blown.
THERE ARE NO QUALIFYING RESTRICTIONS other than submitted films must have been made in 2017 or later. Films can be made by men, women, and anyone or anything in between. This is a screening series for the best new avant-garde and innovative filmmakers in the world, period.
To get into Mondo Cult, your film must be the BEST weird, crazy stuff. The only thing we *don't* want is mainstream films. Features, mid-length, and shorts are all welcome. Music videos, documentaries, and animation will be considered in addition to live narrative (and everything in between).
If your film breaks the rules, if your film oversteps boundaries, and if your film redefines what the words "cult" and "outlaw cinema" mean, we want to see it. And if it's right for our fest, we'll screen it in the world-famous Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, California, USA in front of eager and hungry audiences waiting to discover their newest favorite outlaw filmmaker.
It's the 21st century and the definitions of "art" and "cinema" no longer have to be inaccessible or pretentious. By joining our festival, you're making a statement that art has no rules, film is art, and anyone with talent is deserving of being celebrated even if they fail to conform to the rules of mainstream cinema.
We'll screen films every month at the world-famous Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, California as well as at the Screenland Armour in Kansas City, Missouri. All film screenings will be scheduled two months in advance, usually on the last weekend of each month. The first Mondo Cult will take place in August 2018!
