“The ultimate camp film: a sensationalistic account of a subject its filmmakers obviously knew nothing about.” — Danny Peary, Cult Movies
“This is the JAWS of midnight movies.” — New York Times
This landmark propaganda gigglefest is back in a new 2K presentation also featuring vintage trailers, commercials and ephemera from the American Genre Film Archive vaults!
REEFER MADNESS is one of the first unintentional cinematic gutbusters, a proto-noir melodrama so preposterous it’s like a transmission from Mars. Originally an Afterschool Special for the tent revival set, a modern REEFER viewing is a hilarious romp through the American establishment’s bottomless paranoia -- proving how far we’ve come, and how far we’ve yet to go.
For eighty years since its creation, this seminal cult classic has captured the imaginations of stoners, curiosity seekers and movie maniacs. - Description from American Genre Film Archives

The 2020 Academy Award Nominees for Animated Short Films, presented as a single program.
HAIR LOVE – USA, 7 min.
DCERA (Daughter) – Czech Republic, 15 min.
MEMORABLE – France, 12 min.
SISTER – China/USA, 8 min.
KITBULL – USA, 9 min.
Plus a selection of additional animated shorts:
HENRIETTA BULKOWSKI – USA, 16 min.
THE BIRD AND THE WHALE – Ireland, 6 min.
HORS PISTE – France, 5 min.
MAESTRO – France, 2 min.
The total run time of this program is 85 minutes. Suggested rating is PG-13. The themes tackled in this year’s Animated program are quite heavy – the death of a parent, Alzheimer’s, China’s one child policy, and more. The program overall is rather melancholy, and while there’s nothing especially objectionable within, most of these shorts will not appeal to children under 12, at all. The films are all very good, but adult audiences will appreciate them much more than kids.
