What do "queer, Southern, and crazy" all have in common? (This isn't a trick question.)

The answer can be found in the return of the Out On Film Festival, running Oct. 2-9 at the Midtown Art Cinema. The festival is collaborating with Legendary Children Atlanta to present a night dedicated to experimental cinema that is all of the aforementioned adjectives, per the press release. FOR FILTH! A Night of Queer Shorts will provide a space for up and coming queer filmmakers to showcase their work and push the boundaries of what people expect to see from the South.

The Oct. 9 event will be hosted by a number of favorite Atlanta drag performers from Midtown to East Atlanta. The filmmakers involved are all from the American South, and each film is required to have been filmed in at least one of the Southern states.

"We hope that For Filth! will be a platform for many queer, Southern artists to show work that is often ignored or under-appreciated," Jon Dean, Legendary Children organizer, said. "We've got a lot of surprises in the works for Out On Film; I hope the audience is ready! It will definitely be an interesting night full of great films, drag, and pure filth!"

Film submissions will be accepted through Aug. 15. For more information, visit the Facebook event page.
