To be GREAT, you first have to be unafraid that you might be BAD.
We're looking for WEIRD, WILD, RIDICULOUS and OUTRAGEOUS films.
We love #LowBudget and #NoBudget.
We are accepting feature films now. We'll hold a separate event for shorts in the winter.
Why "bad"? Q&A with festival co-founder, Starr Kendall:
"Not bad meaning bad but bad meaning good."
