Sundance has stars, Slamdance has punks and now, Drunkdance brings you...drunks! Come see the blitzed-out best poured out by Seattle’s finest half-baked filmmakers. Tonight’s micro-festival is for lushes, guzzlers and boozers. Every film has been specially handcrafted to delight the dulled senses. Including: Super Drunk, Rachael Lord. No drink is too strong and no beer is too cheap for Super Drunk! Head Cheese by Franklin Joyce. If everyone's head were made of cheese, ham would be the most popular lunchmeat! Chulp by Fritz Donnelly. There's a reason why everyone in LA wears shades: you look cooler in shades. The Blur Which Project by Suzanne MacLennan. 3 film students went into the woods to huff ether.
