Fury Fest is a film festival celebrating all four of the critically acclaimed (and sometimes ridiculed) cult-classic Mad Max films.
Highly stylized and overly theatrical, the Mad Max films revolutionized how we imagine the future and have made an improbable and lasting mark on pop culture. While the films' most enduring legacy is the punk-styled post-apocalypse populated by marauders in bondage gear and football pads, the visceral and operatic storytelling of series creator George Miller and the titular character, Mad Max, have been copied, parodied, and referenced in everything from Stranger Things and Disney's Moana to the Fallout video game series and The Lord of the Rings.
Every screening will open with Mad Max trivia and a quick look at well known and obscure references to each film that are scattered throughout pop culture.
Cash bar featuring Mad Max themed cocktails, local beer, and snacks, including Chad's Carolina Corn.
