Weird Film Screening Report - October 2017

After three sold-out years at Urbano Cellars in Berkeley, Weird Film Fest moved to PianoFight, San Francisco's well-known downtown performance space, for another night of horror, sci-fi, fantasy and general Weirdness!
Filmmakers Ryan McDuffie ("The Chebo") and Nicholas Zweig ("Eon") participated in a Q&A, and a lively audience crowded into the bar afterward to (a) drink, (b) talk film (c) hang out with Ryan and Nick.
We will return in Spring 2018!
