From Wikipedia – Melbourne Underground Film Festival

The Melbourne Underground Film Festival (also known as MUFF) was formed out of disagreements over the content and running of the Melbourne International Film Festival (MIFF). When director Richard Wolstencroft’s film Pearls Before Swine was not accepted by the Melbourne International Film Festival, Wolstencroft claimed it was because his film was too confrontational for the tastes of MIFF. As a response to the film’s rejection by MIFF, Wolstencroft founded MUFF in 2000 as an alternative independent film festival, featuring mostly genre, controversial, transgressive and avant garde material.

‘Zero Killed’ case study @ SoundTrack_Cologne 8.0

People talk about their murder fantasies and live them in short films. 10 years later they are once again interviewed; the clips and interviews are combined to create a film. Director Michal Kosakowski, post production sound supervisor Olaf Mierau, sound designer Tatjana Jakob and composer Paolo Marzocchi will talk about their work between the extremes, mere ‘making-it-bearable’ and dealing with the yawning chasms of one’s own soul. Moderation: Vasco Hexel.
