BUT Film Festival 2013 news!

From 4th till the 8th of September the BUT Film Festival (THE festival for B-movies, Underground and Trash!) is held in Breda, The Netherlands. In this 8th edition of the festival the main guest will be none other than director Albert Pyun (CYBORG, KICKBOXER 2 and THE SWORD AND THE SORCERER). But there's a lot more to come, so read on!

BUT Film Festival 2013

BUT is a small and intimate, but unique international film festival. Not only is the festival a paradise for B-movie trash and underground movie lovers from around the world, BUT also provides a diverse line-up of unique acts and performances by musicians, poets, artists and other performers.
You won't find a festival similar to BUTFF anywhere else in Europe.

Albert Pyun, main guest at BUT Film Festival 2013

Main guest: Albert Pyun

Pyun is one of the 80's action film pioneers and in his career Albert Pyun worked with the likes of Jean Claude van Damme, Rutger Hauer and Kris Kristofferson. Pyun is not a filmmaker that only sticks to one genre. He proves this in his NEMESIS sequence and in his 1990 rendition of CAPTAIN AMERICA. Like Edward D. Wood Jr., Albert Pyun has an outspoken interest for the bizarre, which is why he is often compared with this filmmaker from the fifties.
During the festival Pyun's two latest films will be screened as well as some of his older works. Further, -the festival can't guarantee it yet- his latest movie CYBORG NEMESIS is still in post production but might be shown during BUTFF! In the lead is Kevin Sorbo, better known as "Hercules".

Guests BUT Film Festival 2013

Guests, paranormal documentaries, comic artists, a freakshow and more!

The theme of this year is Evilution or put differently: Evolution gone wrong. The festival always has a keen eye for new talent in genre films. As usual this means that a fine collection of B-movies, Underground and Trash films will be screened at the festival: crazy doctors, poisonous garbage dumps and radioactive radiation can produce the most gruesome creatures and filmmakers will show you their wildest ideas.
Next to Albert Puyn the festival welcomes the following guests:
