Endangered Fest II is next month in Austin!
Holy schlock! Endangered Fest II is less than a month away, and except for the Facebook and Twitter announcements we made over a month ago, we've hardly done any promotion! Well, let's get to it now! On February 20th, the American Genre Film Archive and the Austin Film Society will present "The Endangered Fest II," the sequel to the 2013 program that unearthed Craig Denney's THE ASTROLOGER, and Temple of Schlock's Chris Poggiali will return as the co-host! Those who attended the first Fest not only experienced the first public screening in years of THE ASTROLOGER but also got to watch rare 35mm prints of HANGUP (a.k.a. SUPER DUDE), the final feature by veteran director Henry Hathaway; the hard-to-find English language version of ENSALADA BAUDELAIRE, which played in the U.S. as both ANDREA and SEX AND VIOLENCE; and Stu Segall’s THE DIRTY DOLLS, a sexploitation crime flick photographed by Gary Graver and starring John Alderman, Sharon Kelly and Lyllah Torena. As with the first Endangered Fest, the titles of the four films will not be revealed until minutes before the start of each screening. The only major change is the venue: Instead of the Alamo Drafthouse Ritz, Endangered Fest II will held be at the AFS at the Marchesa. More details here.
