CINE-REBIS (The London & Porto Underground Film Festivals) is a film festival that celebrates the art of cinema. Showing a selection of short and feature-length films from around the globe, our aim is to show work that expresses originality and creativity and that is truly independent in form, content and spirit. We are interested in films that challenge, expand and explore what cinema is, and could be.
We have lots of exciting films lined up for you this year, including some special events like an evening of poetry and films by the great British artist Jeff Keen, hosted by his daughter and collaborator Stella Keen, a screening and discussion of It Is Not the Homosexual Who Is Perverse But the Society in Which He Lives, presented by One+One Filmmakers Journal, a talk about Jonas Mekas’ first visit to England and the relationships between British and American underground film in the 60′s by William Fowler from the BFI, and an evening of insane and unrestrained trash movies with American filmmaker Kelly Hughes, who will be joining us to present two films, La Cage Aux Zombies: Director’s Cut and Heart Attack!. Alongside all of this, we have a selection of exciting, new shorts and features selected from this year’s submissions plus lots more!
