Sci-fi Short Film Festival X Fest Debuts in NYC, Online 5/11
Time travel. Extra body parts. Shifting reality. Outer space. All of these elements combine to form X Fest, a speculative fiction film festival from the hyper-collaborative filmmaking collective Video Mass. Short sci-fi films from different filmmakers are fit into an overarching frame story starring Damian Young (Birdman, The Comeback, House of Cards). The result is a unified and wildly entertaining cinematic event happening May 11, 2016 at Williamsburg Cinemas at 8 p.m.
As the first invite-only, curated filmmaking festival from Video Mass, X Fest promises to be the collective’s best show yet. After choosing a theme and wildcard prompt related to sci-fi or speculative fiction, participants had two months to write, shoot and edit their final short films. The premiere at Williamsburg Cinemas will be a celebration for filmmakers and riotous good time for attendees. Tickets will be available at online and at the door.
Following the premiere, X Fest will be available free for a limited time online.
