Summer Means. . . KFJC Psychotronix Film Festival At Foothill College on June 25!
Where does one turn, at this point between ennui and activity that always marks the period between Spring's end and the Fourth Of July? Why, the awaited return of the indescribably delicious and good for you KFJC Psychotronix Film Festival at Foothill College, silly!
Yes, that means yet another hallucinatory excursion through the irritated bowels of 20th century popular culture!
16mm films, the vinyl of visuals, formerly unwanted and unloved, now presented for your entertainment! Robert Emmett, host of "The Norman Bates Memorial Soundtrack Show" on KFJC, hosts the festivities with rapier-like wit and cheesy door prizes.
Our overstocked archive is bursting at the seams with new material that demands another show, to show-off some of the coolest odd-ball films you are likely to see.
Curators Sci Fi Bob Ekman, Paul F. Etcheverry and Scott Moon of Planet X Magazine present a delirious deluge drawn from Our Celluloid Past and shall plug the all-16mm celluloid extravaganza on the evening of June 20, from 6:00 - 7:00 p.m. PST with host Robert Emmett on the KFJC 89.7 FM Thoughtline show.
That means the usual suspects, starting with ancient commercials!
And the inevitable forgotten cartoons.
Cheesy Scopitones, of course, will be on hand.
As will uber-campy Soundies and Snader Telescriptions.
We'll also have serials (featuring psycho-robots and the hardest working guy in 1940's showbiz, Guy In A Gorilla Suit) trailers from schlocky B-films. . . no, make that Z-films.
Other KFJC Psychotronix Film Festival perennials include well-meaning but now ridiculous 1950's educational films.
Plus vintage movie theatre "snack bar" ads and kidvid gone wrong, terribly wrong.
Let's celebrate the Summer of 2016 the right way - Psychotronically! Bring your friends and have a blast!
