BOOK NOW

"Divinity Is A Visually Innovative Arthouse Sci-Fi Thriller Masterpiece" - Cinema Daily

presented by Steven Soderbergh
DIVINITY is a mind shattering black & white film from director Eddie Alcazar
The Anti-Blockbuster!

This visually stunning genre-bending movie is unlike anything you'll watch this year.

Set in an otherworldly human existence, scientist Sterling Pierce dedicated his life to the quest for immortality, slowly creating the building blocks of a groundbreaking serum named "Divinity." Jaxxon Pierce, his son, now controls and manufactures his father's once-benevolent dream. Society on this barren planet has been entirely perverted by the supremacy of the drug, whose true origins are shrouded in mystery.

Two mysterious brothers arrive with a plan to abduct the mogul, and with the help of a seductive woman named Nikita, they will be set on a path hurtling toward true immortality.

A fantastic blend of Sci-Fi, Noir, Otherworldly, Arthouse and Dystopian Cinema.

Starring Stephen Dorff (Blade), Bella Thorne (Dirty Sexy Money), Scott Bakula (Quantum Leap),
Moisés Arias (Ender's Game), Karrueche Tran (Claws) as well as bodybuilder Mike O'Hearn, porn star Emily Willis and many more.

Africologist




THE AFRICOLOGIST: Chronicles of Africa
(documentary)

> BOOK STREAMING VIEW OR FULL FEST PASS

I dare to say that this is not the typical cliché-filled documentary film on Africa. I make this remark because it seemed precisely what people expected during my research and filming journey. Breaking out of that mould and making something sensational was specifically what I attempted to do from the beginning. Instead of focusing on the usual tribulations, I used peer-reviewed science results to back the truth about Africa's role in humanity.
The film swings between two distinct canvases; on the one hand, there is the science-fictional, imaginary CG-realm representing the experiences of The Africologist on her journey of discovery. Opposed to that, on the other hand, is an authentic, scientific and factual second canvas in which I appear as the narrator. It is a carefully crafted representation of the world we live in, told from an African point of view. To create these two canvases, I travelled to 16 countries in Africa.

MONTAUK CHRONICLES

Special FREE Documentary Screening

To get yourself psyched for Celludroid 2021, access this winner of one of our previous Celludroid events' Best Documentary feature film prize for free - Watch the full movie HERE

A decade of countless kidnappings, secret government experiments, brainwashing, torture, time travel, mind control, and extra terrestrial contact… Three men survived to tell it all.

This expansive documentary includes interviews, location visits and recreations digging deep into the Montauk conspiracies. Montauk is a remote U.S. town located on the very eastern tip of Long Island, New York.

Montauk Chronicles is the story of three men who claim they were brainwashed and forced against their will by a clandestine organization to take part in secret experiments. Evil atrocities are said to have occurred deep beneath the surface of the Camp Hero Air Force base at Montauk.

It raises many questions of our place in the universe and what the future may hold for humanity.It's an entertaining journey into the unknown and a study of fear, lies, paranoia and the truth.

Director Johannes Grenzfurthner's essayistic feature film transcends the traditional documentary and tries to present an overview of political concepts such as freedom, privacy, identity, resistance and more.

Grenzfurthner couldn't "tolerate ignorant and topically abusive comments on the 'Internet' anymore." So he teamed up with writer and activist Ishan Raval to: "explain, re-evaluate, and sometimes sacrifice political golden calves of discourse."

He calls his project an "ideotaining cinematic revue" about political ideas he considers important. Grenzfurthner cites frustration about the current level of political debate as a primary influence for making the film.

The film features performances by Amber Benson, Max Grodenchik, Jason Scott Sadofsky

Still a riot after all these decades, everyone must see this at least once in their lifetime (if not annually!)

Features the legendary Bela Lugosi (aka Dracula) in his final role, the delicious Vampira and indestructible Tor Jonson.
