Troma and Lloyd Kaufman have been a colorful and legendary participant at the Cannes Film Festival since 1971. But, as the 2018 Cannes Film Festival rolls on, Lloyd Kaufman and Troma Entertainment recall their not-so welcome visit to Cannes last year with “From Festival to Fascism” on their YouTube channel, Youtube.com/TromaMovies
 
“I wasn’t kidding when I said, I will never go back to Fascist Cannes Film Festival. The once legitimate, pro-independent arts festival that embraced free speech and artistic expression has become just another tool for government elites, mega media conglomerates and the ‘coteries of the favored’ to dominate the art world and stomp/police out true independent art.” stated Lloyd Kaufman. “They must have learned this from the Sundance Film Festival!”

Lloyd Kaufman brings the Muscles to Brussels

Performs 48-hour split to promote the Belgium Premiere of
April 14th, 21:30
 
“I was honored when BIFFF elected me as President of the Jury! I was then dishonored when my fellow judges rebelled against my push to award “Volume 2”with the grand prize. Their insubordination has forced me to use alternative methods in my campaign to give myself an award.
 
With over 50 years of experience in the filmmaking industry, I know there is only one way to promote a movie in Brussels; a 48-hour Jean Claude Van Damme-esque split in Mini-Europe. Sure I could do the regular morning TV and Radio circuit, but when has Troma ever been known for doing anything by the book? Watch me stretch these glorious gams across the mini Belgium landmark before the Belgium Premiere of my latest film, Return to Return to Nuke ‘Em High aka Volume 2 at BIFFF on Saturday, April 14th, 21:30!” stated Lloyd Kaufman.
 
 
Lloyd Kaufman will be attending BIFFF – Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival along with Toxie and more April 14th for the Belgium Premiere of “Return to Return to Nuke ‘Em High aka Volume 2”!     BIFFF | April 14th | 21:30
