DAMNATIONLAND

A Late-Night Horror Screening - Halloween weekend!

DAMNATIONLAND presents genre-defying original works from Maine filmmakers that redefine the classic thriller and horror categories. Now in its fifth year, the DAMNATIONLAND 2014 program will feature world premieres of seven short films produced in Maine by Mainers especially for the Halloween season. These are dark, surreal, and fantastic pieces, and they offer film fans an excellent sampling of the talent producing independent film in Maine today.

Starting from the first program in 2010, DAMNATIONLAND'S producers curate films by choosing filmmakers based on the strength of their previous work and their connection to Maine, and then commissioning them to create a new film that will premiere in the program. While giving general guidelines about format and length, producers leave filmmakers with full creative control over their films, resulting in a selection that is diverse in style and story, unique to the tastes of each filmmaker, and always distinctly Maine in spirit.
