Sydney’s weirdest and most wonderful four days of cinema mayhem is back for its 9th year, with the Sydney Underground Film Festival (SUFF) announcing their programme for the September 17th -20th festival, held at The Factory Theatre in Marrickville.
SUFF will screen over 100 films (comprised of features & shorts) sourced from the very best in subversive, experimental, and controversial cinema. With Australian premieres, retrospectives and Q&A screenings alongside masterclasses and special musical performances, it’s going to be a massive four days.
Sydney, get ready for a money shot in 3D!!! I mean, get ready for provocative art house director, Gasper Noe’s newest film, which premiered at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. LOVE is about exactly that, love. This controversial film is certainly an appropriate opener for a festival that prides itself on bringing controversial and challenging cinema to Sydney audiences.
Closing out SUFF this year will be Eli Roth’s latest thriller KNOCK KNOCK, starring no other than the enigmatic, Keanu Reeves.
In between LOVE and KNOCK KNOCK, there’s the festival favourite shorts like LOVE/SICK and REALITY BITES; a 5oth anniversary screening of the sexploitation classic FASTER, PUSSYCAT KILL! KILL!; the nest film from prolific Japanese director Takashi Miike, YAKUZA APOCALYPSE: THE GREAT WAR OF THE UNDERWORLD; and many more!
