Sundance is over. The Oscars are behind us. Which means, at long last, it’s time for the REAL Super Bowl of movies: The Boston Underground Film Festival! For over two decades, BUFF has provided the city with the cutting edge of cinematic weirdness and future cult classics, along with special guests, restored favorites, and mind-melting short upon mind-melting short. This year’s opening salvo is HAIL SATAN?, the latest film from acclaimed documentarian Penny Lane, about the meteoric ascendance of the Satanic Temple. Other selections at press time are the neon-colored queer neo-giallo KNIFE + HEART; HAPPY FACE, about a teen who fakes massive facial deformity to find acceptance in an unsuspecting support group; INDUSTRIAL ACCIDENT, a documentary about Chicago’s legendary Wax Trax Records; and a repertory screening of Sarah Jacobson’s ‘90s underground classic MARY JANE’S NOT A VIRGIN ANYMORE. As always, keep an eye on the Hassle website for our Film Flam team’s in-depth coverage of the fest, and check out the BUFF site for ticket info and further scheduling announcements. Or just camp outside the box office. It’s the only way to make sure.
