International Filmfest of entertaining, fantastic and arthouse free genre cinema.

We are a young team of enthusiastic film fans, long familiar with the scene. The festival director, David Ghane, an avid movie collector, has been visiting 7 to 13 film festivals a year since 2004, sometimes volunteering there, and has himself appeared in horror movies.

​We offer films a platform that have it difficult in Germany due to their particular nature or scope. Many festivals are drifting more and more into the Arthouse or Drama track. People who are looking for entertaining, smaller, more special Independent films or even big budget productions from far away, will find this at the Obscura Filmfest.

It started as a festival for offbeat, trashy, raunchy Underground Grindhouse cinema and [...]

For our next event on the 1st of October hopefully everything will have gone back to "normal." If not we will showcase the event on an amazing online platform as did for the event on the 16th of April, which attracted a large amount of viewers.

Underneath the Floorboards is a visual arts, experimental film night held in London's buzzing artistic area of Hackney.

Our showcase is open to artists and filmmakers from all around the world whose work has an experimental, non-linear narrative form. We want to see variety, whether it be experimental film, video art, visual art, experimental documentary or animation.

No bias, no prejudice, we don't care if you didn't study in the most prestigious art schools. We want to see unique work of an artistic nature, which creates its own language.

This project aims to respond in a creative way to a systemic crisis that prevented artists from working. However, through the digital world these artists will have the possibility to express themselves, to be economically compensated for their work, to conquer new audiences, to contribute to the well-being of all and, thus, to raise their magic and enhance a transdisciplinary culture. Dreaming and achieving is an objective.
This project of interconnection of circus and street arts with cinema and virtual culture will be an urgent response of European solidarity and maintenance of the artistic sector in general, in order to enable content absent in this phase of social emergency.
