Alum Scott Cummings One of Filmmaker Magazine’s ’25 New Faces of Independent Film’

Filmmaker Magazine recently announced its annual list of “25 New Faces of Independent Film” and CalArts alumnus Scott Cummings (Film/Video MFA 07) made the cut. 

Cummings’ lastest film is Buffalo Juggalos, a half-hour experimental exploration and celebration of the Juggalo subculture in Buffalo, New York. “Juggalo” is a name given to fans of the group Insane Clown Posse. 

More from Filmmaker Magazine:

Buffalo Juggalos is straightforward about its title setting and subject and twisty about everything else. A series of minute-long shots executed with James Benning’s mathematical framing and juxtapositioned precision, and Ulrich Seidl’s unnervingly unbroken gaze, it’s a rigorously staged series of tableaux of one of America’s most-feared subcultures making a depressed urban space its own.

To assemble the list, the magazine selected emerging filmmakers that inspire them, takes suggestions from the filmmaking community about who to include in the list, and “challenge themselves to fall in love and make bets.” 

Above, we posted a trailer for Buffalo Juggalos.
