4th edition of The BUT Film Festival

The BUT Film Festival drags you into the exceptional side of cinema 5 days of B-movie, Underground and Trashfilms in Breda

The fourth edition of the international BUT film festival in Breda (NL) will take place from September 9th until 13th. Extraordinary films of which you did not even know they had to be seen, will be shown on the white screen during a five day extravaganza that takes you into the exceptional side of cinema.

Cult director John Waters (VS), also known as the ”King of Trash”, is the main attraction on BUT 2009. Waters’ distinctive features are his use of camp and shocking scenes. In the 70s he started directing low-budget productions featuring the transsexual Divine as a remarkable lead actress. To this day Waters is still making films, this with big names like Johnny Depp and John Travolta. These movies appear to border on the mainstream Hollywood-productions, but looks can be deceiving. They are far from it. During the festival John Waters classics will be displayed such as 'Polyester' (1981), 'Desperate Living' (1977) en de original version of 'Hairspray' (1988).
Horror and underground fans can revel at ´The Tourist´ by Iskanov. The director from Russia will be at the BUT 2009 festival to be present at the world premiere of ´The Tourist´.
The festival kick off will be on 09-09-09 with a spicy film from the B-movie genre, 'Modern love is automatic' (2008) by director Zach Clark (VS).
There is a chance the names given above don’t ring a bell that is because anything can be expected on this festival accept mainstream. BUT stands for B-movie, Underground en Trash. B-films are films made on a small budget, independent of big studio productions. Underground-films are films pioneering at the borders of admissibility. Often they contain explicit features. Trash-films are over-the-top films with an extravagant content and imagery. An interesting selection of films which will interest the connoisseur and surprise the laymen.
Additional to the films BUT will offer performances, lectures, workshops and art. Such as a Monster exhibition with the work of Jaap de Vries (NL) an artist and Underground filmmaker. With all this taking place on a location set to match the festivities, this turns BUT 2009 into a big event and being there into an experience.

BUT 2009 will be hosted at the Electron building, Belcrumweg 19 in Breda, an accessible location only minutes away from the citycentre and the railway station. Additional information can be found on

After the BUT Film Festival John Waters will visit the Melkweg Cinema in Amsterdam on Sunday 13th of September. There he will give an introduction to his crazy comedy 'Polyester' followed by the viewing of his legendary 'Pink Flamingo's'. For more info:
