The LUC Festival relentlessly rumbles on, like a runaway train full of ace films. Tonight we will be desperately jumping to safety at the Arts Trail Studios for an exclusive and entirely free screening of LINT The Movie.
Based on his own book by ace author Steve Aylett, LINT tells the tale of cult author and forgotten man of sci-fi, Jeff Lint. The film includes contributions from a whole host of luminaries such as Stewart Lee, Josie Long, Alan Moore and Robin Ince.
Covering such incidents as Lint’s ill-fated, sexually-charged episode of Star Trek, his elaborate theories on the Kennedy assassination and his insanely disturbing kids cartoon Catty and The Major – Lint The Movie is a thoroughly entertaining exploration of this most troubling and enigmatic of figures.
Prior to the feature tonight we will be screening another batch of fantastic underground shorts that were submitted to the LUC short film prize. Topics covered in this evening’s eclectic selection include the nature of memory, magic phone boxes, mysterious forests, whimsical suicide discussions and dangerous cardboard pets. I hope you have all been keeping up with Benn Veasey’s fantastic blog of the shorts programme so far.
Also joining in tonight will be Comics etc with a selection of their wares, come down early for a browse, to grab a drink and grab a seat for another night of LUC action. If you need directions to Arts Trail, check our handy festival map – or the address is 6 Livery Street, Leamington Spa, CV32 4NP.
