"Only Hell Has Better Films" - everyone, after they see Mondo Cult Film Showcase
*NOTE - WE are no longer accepting features at this time. HOWEVER, we are actively seeking new Feature Film TRAILERS. Please feel free to submit your trailer in the "trailer/teasers" category. We love showing trailers for new feature films that fit our guidelines.*
From the people in charge of Etheria Film Night comes the Mondo Cult Film Variety Showcase. Mondo Cult is a monthly screening series at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, California that showcases the best new underground, surreal, crazy, experimental, obscene, absurd, rule-breaking, and outlaw films from around the world.
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.
THERE ARE NO QUALIFYING RESTRICTIONS other than that your film 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.
Regular submissions through Etheria Film Night are automatically entered for participation in Mondo Cult for no additional fee.
Here are the submission fees:
$10 for shorts under 20 minutes
$10 for feature film trailers/teasers
$15 for shorts 20-60 minutes
Music videos, documentaries, and animation will be considered in addition to live narrative (and everything in between).
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 no later than one month in advance, usually the last weekends of the month.
This is not just another underground film festival. We're the best one.
To get into Mondo Cult, your film must be the BEST weird, crazy stuff. The only thing we *don't* want is mainstream films.
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 pioneering filmmaker.
