Outlier Film Festival has announced its initial 2014 programming. Taking place from November 27-29 at The Bus Stop Theatre, the festival features a TV Carnage screening hosted by creator Derrick Beckles and the Atlantic Canadian debut of Neil Breen's Fateful Findings. Early bird passes and tickets are now available HERE.
For over 12 years, TV Carnage has been at the forefront of incredibly humorous video collage. It is the innovator of a popularized movement that arranges glimpses of media into brilliant and hypnotic stories that examine and satirize media’s involvement in today’s evolution of popular culture. TV Carnage's creator Derrick Beckles also currently hosts Adult Swim's Hot Package, is a producer and correspondent for Vice TV, and recently appreared on Comedy Central's series, Drunk History.
Neil Breen's Fateful Findings has quickly developed a cult following with screenings at film festivals all over North America. The film follows a man who has, "hacked into the most secret government and corporate secrets." The Seattle International Film Festival said the Fateful Findings is, “Wonderful…..David Lynch meets Tom Wiseau," and claimed that “This may be the next cult classic.” Austin.com's Kevin Sullivan said, "Fateful Findings is an oddball, lunatic, masterpiece."

Outlier Film Festival is the first festival of its kind on the East Coast of Canada. Focusing on the genres of cult, fantasy, experimental, documentary, horror, and science fiction, the organizers draw on selections from across our region and around the world to compile a diverse collection of works that challenge, delight, and disturb.
The festival's inaugural year hosted the Atlantic Canadian premiere of The Act of Killing, which was later nominated for Best Documentary of the Year at the 2014 Academy Awards. The Canadian theatrical premiere of legendary science fiction film The Visitor also took place at the festival.
Film submissions for this year's Outlier are open until October 13th. Click HERE for more details.
