Austin's Newest Film Fest is 'Forbidden'
Next week, The Vortex will host the Forbidden Film Fest, a brand new festival that's meant to be an exploration of sexuality and eroticism in film. It's a three-day event, with a different program each night.
Night one will feature the Austin premiere of "Goodbye Gaulie Mountain," a new documentary about mountain top removal in West Virginia and the connection between land and body issues. Co-directors Annie Sprinkle and Beth Stevens will appear live via webcast.
Night two will feature a set of 16 mm banned films dating from 1940 through 1975, and night three will feature a speakers' panel and the "Uncensored! Erotic Short Competition Show."
