The Fall 2011 San Francisco Underground Short Film Festival (SFUSFF), presented by Peaches Christ and Sam Sharkey, hits the Victoria Theatre on Saturday, November 19th!  

SFUSFF is dedicated to supporting underground cinema from Bay Area filmmakers. This raucously, thrilling evening will include 33(!) short films spread out over two programs:  
ACT 1 begins at 7:30pm and ACT 2 (Shorts After Dark) at 10:30pm.
Tickets are $15 for each individual program, $20 for both, and Peaches Christ Fan Club members will receive a $2 discount offer. Buy tickets and become a member at www.PeachesChrist.com!

The SFUSFF will be a physically immersive event with Christ and Sharkey kicking off the night with a Live Rock Show, followed by special appearances from some of the filmmakers themselves and the stars of the films. What’s special this season is ACT 2 of the evening, or as it’s called this season, Shorts After Dark. This 2nd program will feature the more adult content of the festival (basically all the blood and sex), so you know you have to stay for both!

SFUSFF celebrates the underground, overlooked, avant-garde, and ultra outrageous films of the Bay Area. SFUSFF has run since 2003 as the concluding event of the Midnight Mass screening series, which began in 1998.

Amoeba Music is proud to be featured in the upcoming documentary VINYLMANIA, a 75 minute feature length film about an object that has never lost its soul: the vinyl record. But the film needs your help TODAY! Go to VINYLMANIA's Kickstarter page to find out how!

An epic love story, the film is filled with fascinating characters and internationally recognized artists including Philippe Cohen Solal (Gotan Project), Winston Smith (Dead Kennedys, Green Day record sleeve artist), Peter Saville (Joy Division, New Order record sleeve artist), and DJ Kentaro (2002 DMC World DJ Champion).  

Devotion, ecstasy, infatuation, agony – these are all feelings that the director of the film, Paolo Campana, has experienced from childhood and shares with like-minded record collectors, DJs, musicians, and artists (the "vinylmaniacs") featured in the documentary. Set in 11 different cities and seven countries worldwide, the director sets out on a global road trip to find out what role vinyl records play in the 21st century.
