This Thursday, May 12th, InFEST will be taking place at Emerson College. The festival, which is in its second year, features underground student and independent work coming out of Boston. The festival was created by film students Casey Regan and Greg Hanson.
“Last year, while Greg Hanson, my creative partner in crime, and I were trying to put together a premiere screening for our short ‘nunsploitation’ film “Thy Kill Be Done,” we realized that Boston was lacking a home for its active alternative genre community,” says Regan. “We wanted to showcase our favorite films from off the beaten trail. So InFEST was born. This year, InFEST 2: Eclectic Boogaloo is bigger and better, focusing on the “Weird and the Wonderful” of Boston filmmaking.”
As such, each of the shorts will be categorized in either the “weird” or “wonderful” category according to their subject matter or storyline.
This great event invites all of Massachusetts to check out films that they might not otherwise have access to. The event will be taking place this Thursday, from 12:30pm-5:30pm at the Kevin S. Bright Family Screening Room at the Paramount Theater (559 Washington Street, Boston, MA). The event is free and open to the public.
