On 7 days we screen more than 16 movies from, about and of punk, chaos, anarchy and gentrification.
Like every year we have live acoustic sets from different musicians at the cinema.
We are extra excited if filmmakers wish to visit the festival in order to give talks or workshops on a particular aspect of diy cinema. We are committed to creating space for punk and resistance voices and visions.

There will be also a live show at near venue.

    A really cool and distinctive festival that combines live punk music with movies! Thank you for selecting "A Taco" from Mexico, I would have loved to be there but distance is complicated!

  • After completing my film, I entered it in the "TOO DRUNK TO WATCH" Punkfilmfest Berlin. I did this because it is part of a global punk rock community, I found correspondence with the people there very professional. I followed through with all the suggestions they made such as adding transcripts to my narrative. I have edited it again for clearer reading. It was an honor to be picked and I hope to share my Los Angeles Flipside Fanzine the Narrative Documentary / Film Epeisodion Two next year. I earned my first Laurel Award, and this will always be special to me. I know my film was well received. As any filmmaker knows how good it feels to share their narrative or creation story. To be seen and heard and thought about is our goal. I was involved online on Facebook and Instagram and concurrent with what was happening every day of this film-fest. Well done. 10 Year Celebration!
