Zappa Zondag (Zappa Sunday) at the BUT Film Festival this year. Frank Zappa that is of course. Nonconformity is key to our festival, so in that sense Zappa is a kindred spirit of us. Good enough reason to devote a sunday to the man and the legend!
19:00 hrs - The Foolz
Not for Zappa ears only! This coverband brings its own interpretations of Frank Zappa's music with much enthusiasm. Their repertoire is mainly drawn from the 80's shows, with multiple vocals and enough room for the proverbial Zappa solos.

16:30 hrs - Zappa movie: Eat That Question: Frank Zappa in His Own Words (2016)
An in-depth look at the life and work of avant-garde musician, Frank Zappa. In the 20th Century, Frank Zappa made his mark as a musician unlike any other in America. With a wild eccentric iconoclastic attitude guiding his distinctive music, which it was itself guided by a firm intellectual integrity, Zappa made himself an unforgettable force in popular music. This film covers his life and work through various archival footage through the decades. Whether it was his taboo challenging early creations, his outspoken efforts against the political forces determined to censor him or his constant quest for new artistic challenges, Zappa made a mark no one could ignore.
