“The Ruffians” and “Bloody Basin” selected to screen in this year’s Arizona Underground Film Festival!

September 4, 2010

Well I gotta say it’s been a kick ass month for Guerrillastar Productions! We just found out not one, but two of our films were accepted into this year’s Arizona Underground Film Festival! Needless to say we’re super stoked about it. Congratulations to the entire cast and crew of both films on a job well done! HiPhOP!

For those of you unfamiliar with the festival, here’s some stuff that I snagged from their website:

Arizona Underground Film Festival is Arizona’s only premier underground cult film festival! Being a non-profit film festival, we make it our sole mission to showcase the work of filmmakers with defiantly independent visions. We are on a quest to represent every genre of independent film from across the world celebrating the artist, and their work.

Now in our third year we are taking Arizona by storm with screenings in both Tucson and Phoenix during the week of Sept 18th to 25th. This 8 day festival will cover categories from Narrative, Horror, Documentaries, Experimental, Animation, and we are proud to be the only festival to offer an Exploitation category. Join us in the underground!

We will be giving out awards to the best feature and short for Narrative, Horror, Experimental, Animation, Documentaries, and Exploitation.
