2014 Oakland Underground Film Festival

True to its name, the Oakland Underground Film Festival aims to serve as a showcase of fine independent films and projection art. Offerings may range from fictional features to documentary-style pieces, but the event organizers always place an especial emphasis on pieces that examine urban life and issues of social justice. Here are a few highlights from the 2014 festival:

  • For an Australian film hailed as “an exemplary time travel comedy” by Indiewire, see The Infinite Man (September 25 at 7 p.m.)
  • For a campy nod to teen flicks, in which high school girls—played by adult drag performers—try to infiltrate the popular crowd, see First Period (September 26 at 9 p.m.)
  • For rare glimpses of bygone Bay Area scenery sourced from amateur artists, newsreel cameramen, and industrial filmmakers, see Lost Landscapes (September 27 at 2 p.m.)
  • For a French film described by Variety as a “lyrical, experimental, semi-fictionalized mood piece,” see Belleville Baby (September 28 at 2 p.m.)
