LEADING festival for cult and underground films, the Sydney Underground Film Festival (SUFF) returns for 2017 with a huge program at Marrickville's Factory Theatre from September 14-17.
Over four big days, the festival will screen more than 100 films sourced from the world's very best experimental, innovative and controversial filmmakers, with a number of standouts being Australian premieres.
Festival Director Stefan Popescu said: "We have scoured the globe for the weirdest, most wonderful and subversive films of the year, and have come up with a line-up that will either intrigue, fascinate or shock the pants off most people.
"From the terrifying, to the bizarre, to the insanely fun and the (almost) unwatchable, we are serving it up to push buttons, tickle some fancies, and stir up some crazy. We can't wait to share this cinematic sideshow with Sydney!"
Opening the 2017 Festival is Found Footage, featuring a hilarious guided tour of absurd, odd and ridiculous VHS finds and forgotten video treasures.
As featured on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Found Footage will be in Australia for the first time ever, and is a must-see live event for lovers of film and comedy.
Australian premieres at the Festival will include a twist on the slasher genre in Tragedy Girls, Infinity Baby, the shocking and bizarre Vietnamese film KFC, and the long-awaited sequel to the Japanese full-throttle splatter sci-fi action horror, Meatball Machine Kodoku.
The program will also feature a line-up of music documentaries and much-loved short film programs, with sessions including Love/Sick, LSD Factory, Reality Bites and Ozploit!.
Finishing off the Festival in true SUFF provocative style, will be the Australian premiere of Flying Lotus' Kuso, aptly known as the 'grossest movie ever' after sparking mass walk-outs (and passing-outs) at its premiere at Sundance Film Festival.
Tickets are on sale now via suff.com.au.
