If you’re a regular here you’ll no doubt recognise some of the films and kick ass directors in our thank you list below, but even you loyal folks should find a few new gems to check out amongst the past favourites.
If you’re at Reading or Leeds this weekend click on the posters for timings and be sure to shout @kung_fuelvis or @MarBelle on twitter if a desire to drink beer and chat films catches you (we’ll be at Reading as usual).
I’ve started to feel bad about flaunting such a great programme of films in front of our non-UK, non-festival going friends, so just for you, here’s a trailer for this year’s screening. Enjoy and let us know your favourite films in the comments.
15 Before the 3rd – Jamie Winterstern
15 minutes before the 3rd period – a coach calls upon his rookie.
Frank DanCoolo: Paranormal Drug Dealer – Andrew W. Jones
In the annoyingly sparkly future-scape of Neo-Mega-Ultra Tokyo, reporter Holly Malone tracks a murderous urban legend. She discovers that a chain of drug related killings leads down a super natural trail. A trail that ends with no average pill pusher, but FRANK DANCOOLO: PARANORMAL DRUG DEALER!
I Met the Walrus – Josh Raskin
In 1969, a 14-year-old Beatle fanatic named Jerry Levitan snuck into John Lennon’s hotel room in Toronto and convinced him to do an interview. 38 years later, Levitan, director Josh Raskin and illustrators James Braithwaite and Alex Kurina have collaborated to create an animated short film using the original interview recording as the soundtrack.

Star Wars: Retold (by someone who hasn’t seen it) – Joe Nicolosi
My friend Amanda had never seen a whole Star Wars film. When I asked her if she wanted to watch the original trilogy she said that she would, but that she already knew what happens. So I took out my voice recorder and asked her to start from the top.
The Cat Piano – Eddie White & Ari Gibson
In a city of singing cats, a lonely beat poet falls for a beautiful siren. When a mysterious dark figure emerges, kidnapping the town’s singers for his twisted musical plans, the poet must save his muse and put an end to the nefarious tune that threatens to destroy the city.
Tim and Puma Mimi: Perspective – Mone
The story of a girl who lives in a big city. She’s tired of the concrete jungle around her and follows the moon into a colourful land with no shadows. Her alter ego is a tiny girl with a radio. And sometimes the two girls meet each other.
TUB – Bobby Miller
