So it's that time of year again, when underground filmmakers take their work above ground. The fifth annual Atlanta Underground Film Festival (AUFF) is coming up Aug. 20-24, and organizers recently posted the schedule.
With 18 features and 14 shorts at five venues over five days, the AUFF promises to be film-tastic, and other bad puns denoting cinematic fun.
The festival kicks off Aug. 20 at the Highland Inn Ballroom Lounge with Greg Kohs' feature Song Sung Blue, a documentary about husband-and-wife Neil Diamond tribute artists Lightning & Thunder.
The AUFF all-access pass is only $35. That gets you into all of the screenings, parties and whatnot for less than a meal for two at Applebee's. For the schedule, a full list of films and locations or to purchase tickets, visit the AUFF website.
