Poster for the 'Incredibly Bizarre Short - Film Festival #1' that featured short films from David Lynch ('Alphabet' and 'The Grandmother'), Timothy and Stephen Quay, "The Brothers Quay" ('The Cabinet of Jan Svankmajer' and 'The Epic of Gilgamesh') and Survival Research Laboratories ('A Bitter Message of Hopeless Grief' and 'Baited Trap - A Tale of Meat, Torment and Murder').

'A Bitter Message..' is the only SRL 'show' shot as a film with a story line. The two Lynch shorts are his first two student films (the second made with an AFI grant). This one-off film festival screened at Salt Lake City's Cinema in Your Face! from May 12th to the 18th in 1988. Cinema in Your Face was Salt Lake's independent arthouse that closed when the owners acquired 9th and 9th's Tower Theatre.
