About The Event
The fourth edition of Film Maudit 2.0, a showcase and celebration of outré films, takes places January 12-22, 2023 in Los Angeles and online.
This year, Film Maudit 2.0 features over 100 works of cinema from 20+ countries including films rarely if ever, seen in festivals: works addressing socio-political issues and taboo subject matter that challenges conventional artistic assumptions and sexual mores.
The hybrid festival will present both physical screenings @ Highways, as well virtual screenings @ watch.filmmaudit.org, of 15 feature films, 10 shorts programs, BEHOLD! Queer Series, and a collection of new music to early avant-garde cinema performed live. Included in the festival are a range of narrative, documentary and experimental films that are deliberately bold, extreme, confrontational and unusual.
Film Maudit 2.0 is inspired by French avant-garde filmmaker and writer Jean Cocteau who created the original Festival du Film Maudit (literally “cursed films”) in 1949 aiming to celebrate overlooked, shocking and experimental films.
