The 2019 Drunken Film Fest Bradford will take place as a "mini" version of the larger festival to allow Jax to go on maternity leave. This means we will be scouting films for a much smaller program and will later re-open for submissions for the 2020 festival.

My goal in founding Drunken Film Fest was to provide comfortable, unique, and most importantly FREE spaces to show our films. That led me to the amazing local pub scene of Bradford - hence 'Drunken' Film Fest. It's not about getting drunk on booze; it's about getting drunk on film, having great conversations, and exploring the amazing venues this city has to offer.

    My film had a nice reception and then seeing other films and the fact that I was talking to the filmmakers without me feeling too much shy was very good too. A great privilege to be within the same space as these films. Very intimate if you would like to visit one of the bars it will be showing at next year.

  • Unfortunately I was not able to attend the fest, but the organizers were great communicating with me about my film. For those that did attend, it seemed like everyone had a great time and had wonderful things to say about the organizer and the programming. I were thrilled to be a part of it!
