WHAT WE'RE ABOUT
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.

— Jax Griffin, festival founder and director

Awards & Prizes

"...the perk of getting our film reviewed by Film Inquiry as a result of winning Best Documentary was extraordinarily unique and something I haven't seen offered at any other festival.'' - Brian Gersten, director of The Hollerin Contest at Spivey's Corner, Winner Best Documentary DFF 2016

    A fun, indie-minded festival where our American-made short film had its English premiere. Although I didn't attend, the communication was great with the founder (Jax), whose spirit carries through every facet of the festival. I would definitely submit my next project to Drunken Film Fest. Cheers!
