The Sydney Underground Film Festival kicks off this week, but before they do, they've been forced to cancel screenings of the documentary Room Full of Spoons after the subject of the film, Tommy Wiseau, threatened legal action.
According to its website, Room Full of Spoons is "an in depth documentary about the cult film that is widely accepted as the worst film ever made: The Room".
In the 10-year history of the SUFF, this is the first time they have had to cancel screenings.
Speaking to BuzzFeed, SUFF's director, Stefan Popescu said the festival "prides itself on screening the worst, most contentious films". When the first legal letters came through, they weren't entirely taken seriously.
In lieu of Room Full of Spoons, the Underground Film Festival is hosting screenings of Wiseau's The Room - at the request of the director.
As far as now being part of The Room's mythology, Popescu couldn't be happier.
The Sydney Underground Film Festival runs from the 15th until the 18th of September.
