This past Saturday was the Carnage Asada film festival where 8 horror/grindhouse films by local CA film makers were screened. My faux trailer The Can-Cannibals screened along with my brother’s feature length Cinco De Mayo in our home town Modesto, CA at the State Theater. The organizers of the festival are also Modesto film makers, and they screened their grindhouse feature length, Oscar’s Theme 2, at the end of the show. Sadly (to my knowledge) a program was never made for the festival so I can’t share the other short films info or links. This was the first time they organized a film festival, so there was some mistakes and missteps along the way but it ended up being a real fun evening. I’m hoping it will happen again.
It was really fun to have it shown at our only independent movie theater in Modesto and one of the few, if only, indie theaters in the county. The audience was really receptive and would cheer at some of the deaths, which is awesome, that’s what we want. Personally with all the festivals my project has played, audience participate is actually rare. Which is too bad, because it can make it real fun and much more enjoyable. With my project, people just need to let loose and not take it so seriously.
I forgot to take photos but here are a few from other people, lol.
