2019 Nihilist Film Fest Comes to Echo Park Film Center

For the twentyith year, the Nihilist Cultural Foundation presents the Nihilist International Film Festival. This year’s evening of films will be presented at the Echo Park Film Center. The show will start at 7:30 pm on Friday, December 13. The festival includes two hours of short films from around the country and around the world. The films range from troubling to hilarious, from profound to completely silly. Pretty much, something for everyone (except children and clergy).

Festival Director Elisha Shapiro commented, “Since 1999, we have been doing this film festival. And things have changed a lot. More people have access to better technology, and more access to film festivals. More people are able to make great art expressing their weird nihilist world views. So we have a great selection this year.”

As a special feature, all those who bring their own televisions and arrive fifteen minutes early will be able to include their appliances in the traditional ritual Blessing of the Televisions.

Nihilist Film Festival director Elisha Shapiro is a Los Angeles-based conceptual artist. He is known for presenting the 1984 Nihilist Olympics and the 1999 Nihilism Expo. He was also the Nihilist Party candidate for Governor in 2006, for President in 1988, and for LA county sheriff in 1992. Most recently, Shapiro appeared as The Funniest Nihilist in the LA Fringe Festival.

Echo Park Film Center is located at 1200 North Alvarado Street Street in Silverlake. Nihilist Christmas Special ticket prices are only 99 cents. More information is available at the Nihilists Corner website:
