While waiting for season two of their TV show to air on FRISSONS TV, the greasy film festival will be celebrating its fourth year. Cabane à Sang’s mission is to promote the juicy films of directors showcased at renowned events, such as the South By Southwest (Heat – Thessa Meijer) as well as those forgotten by funding institutions (Bungee inc. – Samuel Lacroix).
Screening the event in person for the first time since the start of COVID-19, Cabane à Sang will host the 2021 edition of their festival on April 23 and 24 2021 at STARCITÉ MONTRÉAL movie theater in Hochelaga-Maisonneuve.
The first evening (April 23) is 100% Montreal made content and will brought to the screen in collaboration with the Fantasia International Film Festival. This includes the world premiere of JP Langlois’s feature film THE IMPALERS, a self-funded Montreal Bikersploitation.
Alan Kolovsky is chased down by a manhunt led by bikers, hired killers and Russian spies that takes us on a bloodthirsty revenge quest where car chases meet endless shootings and torture. This man is desperate to save his own skin and no one can stop him.
THE IMPALERS will also be sharing the bill with local horror short films by Miguel Plante (Plaqué), Raphaël G. Courchesne (Squirt Alley) et de Felipe Arriagada-Nunez (Xtermination) – whom has been nominated at l’ADISQ for directing a music video for FouKi.
On April 24, 2021, Cabane has programmed a variety of short films from all over the world, one greasier or juicier than the next. The quantities of blood of this film being so outrageously high that it requires the use of raincoats to watch, The Last Christmas Of The Universe by David Muñoz and Adrián Cardona will leave you soaking wet. These two filmmakers have been collecting awards for years with their films Fist of Jesus and Brutal Relax.
In Canadian premiere, the Norwegian film Hospital Dumpster Diver by Anders Elsrud Hultgreen will raise public awareness to the dangers of medical waste. A pure tribute to Basket Case and Street Trash.
Fans of Cabane à Sang know the importance of grotesque animated films in our programing each year. This edition will be no exception since the films of Robert Morgan (Tomorrow I Will Be Dirt), Joren Cull (Jimi) and Trent Shy (The Feast) will take part in this years edition.
Made in Quebec content is, as always an integral part of the programming. Films by Geneviève Dunn and Étienne Destroismaisons (The incredible Paul), stuntman Maxime Laurin (Skateblood) and Vincenzo Nappi (Filtered). For his second participation in the festival, Vincenzo helms a film brilliantly produced during the first confinement. He takes the impossibility of contact between his actors and exchanges it for an artistic approach (a film directed via Zoom).
A free streaming SCI-FI pre-show will be available on April 22, 2021 on the Cabane à Sang Facebook page. Neon-colored films by Luis Tinoco (Caronte), Aitor Almuedo Esteban (Human Trash) and Bruno Gradaschi (Consume) will kick off the festivities.
The Hochellywood (Hochelaga) based film festival Cabane à Sang 100% independently financed, but could not exist without its proud partners Horreur Québec, Frissons TV, Lopez, Vox Populi and CHOQ.
