Santa Fe Independent Film Festival Brings John Waters Live to the Lensic

The “Santa Fe Independent Film Festival announces a special evening with John Waters on Saturday, October 19th at The Lensic Performing Arts Center. The main event of the evening will be John Waters LIVE in his newest one-man-show This Filthy World.  John Waters, known for Hairspray and Crybaby highlights his impressive film career and perverse taste. The living independent film legend who William Burroughs dubbed "The Pope of Trash," will follow his show with a book signing of his latest title ROLE MODELS."

"No filmmaker embodies the independent spirit and honesty the way that the great John Waters. He is a true independent spirit and we are extremely honored to have him at the festival." said Jacques Paisner, Executive Director and Co- founder.

John Waters grew up in Baltimore in the 1950s, obsessed by violence and gore, both real and on the screen. With his counter-culture friends as his cast, Waters began making silent 8mm and 16mm films in the mid-'60s. By the early 1970s, he was making features, breaking into world-wide notoriety with PINK FLAMINGOS (1972) - a bold exercise in ultra-bad taste. Waters successfully crossed over to Hollywood with HAIRSPRAY(1988) that was turned into the eight time Tony award-winning Broadway musical.

The Santa Fe Independent Film Festival is the hottest, fastest-growing film festival where innovative filmmakers have a place to screen their films to the diverse audiences in Santa Fe, New Mexico during the annual 5 day film fest the third week in October, now in its 5th year and, at special events throughout the year.

Tickets for John Waters LIVE "This Filfthy World" range from $18 to $58 and are available at or call #505-988-1234 on Monday September 16th.
