The one and only original New York Underground Film Festival starts up this weekend and there are going to be dozens–literally dozens–of beloved Rooftop alumni at the Anthology Film Archives with their new films and selected classics. Some of the films/filmmakers you should check out are: *Jim Finn’s latest socialist masterpiece * Sundance roommate Josh Safdie’s Jerry Ruis Shall we do This * A new sexy Lynne Stewart doc by Paul Chan * A program devoted entirely to the films of Paul Tarrago and Ben Coonley * Animation by Mariana Ellenberg * New work by Aaron Valdez * A program of ridiculously low budget shorts curated by Mike Plante featuring such buddies as the Zellner Bros., Roger Beebe, Bill Daniel, Eileen Maxson, Carson Mell, Sebastian Wolf and even many people who haven’t yet had their films up on the roof. PLUS! * The most fun thing you can do with a roomful of Pabst-upped underground NYC filmmakers and a really unreliable internet connection–It’s TubeTime
