The Spectral Film Festival believes deeply in the capacity of filmmaking to embody individual and collective voices. Innate to its character, this festival seeks to celebrate unconventional forms of expression through experimental, avant-garde, and underground works. We are looking for short-form cinematic pieces that permeate the boundaries of texture, intimacy, and hybridity; those that are unnerving, immersive, expository, and are as daring as they ask their viewer to be in redefining what is accepted as fact.
The Spectral Film Festival is an expansion of the Spectral Microcinema, which has been hosting screenings and celebrating handmade films in the underground, experimental, and avant-garde tradition since 2016.
