+ 2013 FILM SCHEDULE LISTED FURTHER BELOW +
DAMNED proudly presents the third exhibition of powerful cinema called Purgatory III. Held on March 8th & 9th 2013 at the Detroit's Tangent Gallery, Purgatory will present various short films of deeply introspective, beautifully disturbing and darkly enlightening subject matters from filmmakers local and worldwide. This is not an industry-focused horror film festival, but a tributary showcase of the often redemptive films from the filmmaker’s personal damnations. (The 2013 filmmaker roster is listed further below)
