New Midwestern film festival celebrates weird cinema

by Phil Wheat


Dr. Dean Bertram, the founder and director of Australia’s two leading genre film festivals: A Night of Horror International Film Festival and Fantastic Planet, Sydney Sci-Fi and Fantasy Film Festival is expanding his reach to the US with the announcement of the founding of a new film festival in Eau Claire, Wisconsin… the MidWest WeirdFest.

The inaugural MidWest WeirdFest will run March 3-5, 2017 at the Micon Downtown Cinema in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Says Bertram:

MidWest WeirdFest is a cinematic celebration of all things fantastic, frightening, alternative and just plain weird. A film festival that not only champions and showcases independent genre cinema – horror, sci-fi, fantasy and thriller – but one that welcomes all types of underground film. From experimental and avant-garde to offbeat documentaries.

The festival is currently accepting film submissions until January 20, 2017. For more details visit the festival’s official website: www.midwestweirdfest.com
