SUFF @ THIS IS NOT ART NEWCASTLE

Sydney Underground Film Festival presents #WTF Shorts

Welcome to the post-apocalyptic audiovisual world of WTF films. Born out of a hyper-capitalist collision of YouTube celebrity aspirations, intellectual and aesthetic tedium, technological over-accessibility, these works obliterate the distinction between low and high art. Part idiot, part savant, these post-narrative films will activate spectatorship like no other films…and have you ROLF. Join us for one night only of short film terror and pleasure at THIS IS NOT ART.
Venue:
The Royal Exchange
34 Bolton Street, Newcastle
This is a FREE EVENT
