As there is only 4 months until SECS FEST 2018 (Sept 7-9), SECS staff are busy watching submissions and making plans for September. However, we are also still holding special screenings each month of features that won’t be at the festival and for May, we are joining forces with Something Weird and the American Genre Film Archive (AGFA) to bring the new 2K restoration of TAKE IT OUT IN TRADE (1970).
TAKE IT OUT IN TRADE was thought to be among Edward Wood Jr.’s lost films. Made in 1970 after a 10 year hiatus, Wood wrote, directed, and appears as Alecia, in this comedic sexploitation romp.
After being unavailable for decades, AGFA and Something Weird are behind the brand new 2K Restoration that we will be exhibiting. And AGFA’s Joe Ziemba and Sebastian del Castillo will be present to introduce the film and delve into the work’s history and importance among Ed Wood’s filmography.
Thursday, May 24 – 9 pm

We are still accepting submissions for SECS FEST 2018, but the final deadline is rapidly approaching. So make sure that you finish and submit your erotic film by June 1 and we’ll see you at the festival!
