Disaster Film Has a Whole New Meaning.
A hilarious and all-too-realistic spoof of the film industry, The Festival is a 6-part mockumentary series starring wide-eyed young filmmaker Rufus Marquez. As seen through the lens of fictional documentarian Cookie Armstrong, Marquez hitchhikes his way to the impossibly pretentious Mountain United Film Festival (M.U.F.F.), clutching the only copy of his first feature, The Unreasonable Truth of Butterflies. Recently divorced and living in his mother's basement, Marquez desperately wants his big break; instead he's pushed to the edge of a breakdown. At M.U.F.F., absurdity piles onto absurdity as the charmingly naive Marquez enters a zany world of bitter veteran filmmakers, self-important Hollywood executives, preening actor-gods, and obnoxious groupies.

A witty and richly-deserved parody of film festivals and the movie industry in general, The Festival revels in knocking the block off big egos and artsy poseurs. Both rewarding entertainment and razor-sharp insight, The Festival is "everything a mock documentary should be: sassy, glib, subtle, biting, and consistently hilarious" (The Hollywood Reporter).

Editor's Note
The film festival circuit is parodied in this amusing mocumentary-style movie. THE FESTIVAL begins by following a young filmmaker named Rufus Marquez, who is being filmed by a documentary crew as he takes his first film to the fictitious Mountain United Film Festival (M.U.F.F.). On arrival Marquez encounters ludicrously pretentious figures, film festival groupies, burnt-out Hollywood players, and actors with impossibly lofty opinions of themselves. A spirited and well-observed satire of the film festival circuit, THE FESTIVAL may prove to be uncomfortable viewing for industry veterans.
