The StraightJacket Guerrilla Film Festival starts today and runs through April 7th.
This is a unique film festival in that it is all taking place online. In a time where underground film festivals are either ceasing their existence, or else resorting to showing mainstream works and co-opting the term “underground”, StraightJacket looks to be likely the most relevant underground cinema fest of the year.
Each day brings a new batch of featured works, all for free viewing, on the site’s film page, with a 24 hour window for watching:
SPECIAL NOTE: On Monday, April 4th, the film RECOVERY HOUSE will be making it’s long awaited premiere. This is a film created by original members of COLLAPSE PRODUCTIONS (Kelly Broich, Casey Broich) and it stars Absurdist Video Artist ELI ELLIOTT in his feature film acting debut. We will have a bigger write up on the film soon.
For now, enjoy the current selections screening at the above link.

THE FUTURE OF CINEMA Lives on YouTube
Known or Unknown.
Allowing our film mistakes to be SPOTLIGHTED. The gift of anti-beauty as the new beautiful. WE are not concerned about your madness, we WELCOME it.
No film must go left or right, but ZIGZAG
