Outlier takes place in Halifax, Nova Scotia from November 21-24. All screenings take place at The Bus Stop Theatre (2203 Gottingen Street). Passes and tickets are available online at http://outlierfilmfestival.com and at Obsolete Records (2454 Agricola Street).
Outlier is the first festival of its kind on the East Coast of Canada. Showcasing "horror pop, grey magic, psycho-spiritual, doom fantasy, genre and other films outside the bubble," the organizers have drawn on selections from across our region and around the world to compile a diverse collection of works that challenge, delight, and disturb.
Features at this year's festival include: The Werner Herzog- and Errol Morris-produced documentary The Act of Killing; reality-blurring horror film Toad Road; pre-apocalyptic comedy Doomsdays; the Canadian premiere of the dark, German drama Nothing Bad Can Happen; supernatural gore-fest The Demon's Rook; documentary on groundbreaking Toronto band Fifth Coloumn, She Said Boom; dark and dreamlike animation Consuming Spirits; The Canadian premiere of 1979's The Visitor; filth-soaked Canadian film Septic Man; charming phallus-focused documentary The Final Member; and Mexican body-horror film Halley.
Short films at the festival include: The Naturalist, Agophobia, Journeymen, Decapoda Shock, Paradise City, Kreb, The Guest, The Animals, Wall Hanger Horror, Depth, Nigredo, Under the Volcano, Presence, The Soft Racket, Jonathan Rotsztain's Trees, and Miruna.
Sponsors of Outlier Film Festival include: ioumusic, The Postman, Garrison Brewing, Film & Creative Industries Nova Scotia, Strange Adventures, Pro Skates, Obsolete Records, Halifax Pop Explosion, & Rocking Horse Road.
