Crazy, scary, confounding – here’s this year’s collection of the weirdest films submitted to LIAF – bundled up as the annual collection of Late Night Bizarre.
Expect drug-addled axe swinging penguins, unusual feeding arrangements, cowpokes poking where cowpokes shouldn’t be poking, scary bottoms, juggling clowns and much, much more. And DON’T put the title of the opening film into an on-line translator. You know what we mean and we know what you want.
At Horse Hospital book tickets
Ketsujiru Juke (Sawako Kabuki, Japan)
An in depth look at… no wait, we can’t say that. A large pile of… ah, crap, we can’t say that either. LNB aficionados will be out of their seats though.
Cute Midwestern Family Moments (Oreos And Melk) (Joe Sams, USA)
Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too many kids. Yeah.
Knock Knock (Chadwick Whitehead, USA)
Oh God. Don’t go there, it won’t turn out well.

A lock can be much more curious when the key does not work properly. I am the bent key sniffing curiosity.

Bless You (David Barlow-Krelina, Canada)
Buy the ticket, take the ride, but who could have anticipated Nasal Armageddon on the nightly commute.
Touch A Walrus (Jackson He, Canada)
Touching it is one thing, but licking it is another. And was the tear-gas really a good idea (coz the hand gun sure wasn’t).
Here there and everywhere (Sawako Kabuki, Japan)
Love (or being in love) is a wonderful thing that colours our life, but love is not always visible and sometimes is vague and ephemeral.
The Penguin (Annette Jung, Germany)
Who could have thought one tiny little penguin could harbour such a comprehensive grab bag of vices and provoke so much mayhem?
