SCREAM QUEER special mention-s 2022:
TRUTHLESS by Badhou Zhao for his aestethic
The whole work of Werther Germondari for his unique sense of humor
He's considered the heir of Joe d'Amato, misunderstood in his home country and loved by many around the world on the underground extreme circuit: Domiziano Cristopharo is an Italian filmmaker, amongst many other things, who doesn’t shy from bringing shocking images to the screens. His work comes over with a lot of finesse and style. This is the chap behind such titles as Doll Syndrome, House of Flesh Mannequins, Red Krokodil, and many more. His muse, the actress Chiara Pavoni (Andreas Schnaas DEMONIUM, Zuccon's BAD BRAINS or VIOLENT SHIT: THE MOVIE) is considered a sexy icon of Italian cinema.
Both decided to dedicate this festival to the most mistreated side/category of underground cinema, where avant-garde, sensuality, sexuality and - why not - pornography find a place in the experimental matter of a film (or performance) where a language without limits of moralism, bigotry and conformity of the gender identity: Extreme Horror, Erotic Comedies, Arthouse, Exploitation and Porn are welcome in this fest expecially if LGBTQ themed!
Most of the film fests will reject this kind of works, we acclaim, love and respect them!
Please, DO NOT SUBMIT movies that can be shown to standard festivals: we want EXCESS!
