New England Underground Film Festival to be Held on Campus Saturday
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. Although the festival is taking place on campus, it is run by an outside organization and is not affiliated with the University of Hartford.
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.
