Russell Sheaffer's Experimental Feature "Masculinity/Femininity" (ATLFF '15) is Available for Free


"Masculinity/Femininity" is an experimental documentary feature from renowned filmmaker Russell Sheaffer that played this year's ATLFF. Picking up where "Masculinity & Me"—his short film starring James Franco—left off, "Masculinity/Femininity" is presented as a series of monologues, stories and performance pieces by artists, academics and gender theorists.

Sheaffer also had an experimental short film play this year's festival. "Broken Jaw" is a mediation on physical and psychological trauma.

To celebrate the United States Supreme Court's decision on marriage equality, Sheaffer decided to release "Masculinity/Femininity" without cost through Vimeo On Demand. Click here to rent the film free of charge, using Promo Code: Equality.

ATLFF is dedicated to experimental film programming—both features and short films. Our annual experimental shorts block consistently exceeds expectations, and "Masculinity/Femininity" is just one example of an ATLFF experimental feature official selection. Additionally, partnerships with local organizations like Contraband Cinema help keep us focused on experimental film year-round.

We are now accepting submissions for the Experimental Features, Experimental Shorts and all other categories for the 2016 Atlanta Film Festival. The Regular Deadline is September 18.
