"The Engine Collision Festival (ECF): New Media, Film, Music, Fashion, Art and Literature" is an 11-day celebration of international fringe artists from all over the world -- and David Lynch. "Cinema, performance and multimedia dynamically presents the current state of 'Genre,' the influence of past and the vision of future." If you have any idea what that means, you'll want to attend all 11 days for such highlights as Lynch screening a selection of unavailable short works; a program of 2009 Slamdance winners; extreme films from the Parisian underground, including rare work from Gaspar Noe (Irreversible, I Stand Alone
); and daily screenings from Bizzurke Army UFM. Lots of surprises from other cinematic arty types are also expected.
