Albert Pyun announced as main guest at the B-movie, Underground and Trash Film Festival

by Phil Wheat


From Wednesday 4th September till Sunday 8th September, the 8th annual B-movie, Underground and Trash Film Festival (BUTFF) will once again be held in the city centre of Breda in the Netherlands.BUTFF is a small and intimate, but unique international film festival. Not only is the festival a paradise for B-movie trash and underground movie lovers from around the world, it also provides a diverse line-up of unique acts and performances  by musicians, poets, artists and other performers. You won’t find a festival similar to BUTFF anywhere else in Europe.

This year the theme is Evilution – crazy doctors, poisonous garbage dumps and radioactive radiation can produce the most gruesome creatures – featuring movies in which filmmakers will show you their wildest ideas. BUTFF also venture into the wonderful world of the smaller creatures on earth with a lecture and film about insects.

The big draw for me personally is the announcement that the main guest this year is one of my all-time favourite director, Albert Pyun. His name is connected to a long list of some of the BEST action movies of the 80s and 90s, including the likes Cyborg, Kickboxer 2 & 4 and Knights. But Pyun is not a filmmaker that only sticks to one genre, helming sci-fi flicks Nemesis, the 90s iteration of Captain America and one of my favourites, the Full Moon feature Arcade.

BUTFF is set to screen two of his latest movies along with some of his older work. Pyun has stated that the festival may screen his cut of Cyborg, entitled Slingers, if the print is ready in time and the BUTFF organisers are also hoping his latest movie Cyborg Nemesis, which is still in post production,might be shown!
