Scumdance is a celebration of the best of underground film. We champion punks, weirdos, mutants, misfits, metalheads & maniacs from around the globe.
We specialize in horror, comedy, horror-comedy, sci-fi, avant-garde, music based, and experimental films. Though really, we're just looking for good, weird movies.
