    Vancouver Badass Film Festival is far more than a film festival. It is an experience. It is a wacky horror carnival of oddity and fun. In addition to great feature films, and shorts, there are performers; sword swallower, side show antics, magic, fire dancers, costume contests, burlesque performers, amazing hosts, awards, prizes. What a dope badass festival. As well as. fantastic for networking. Highly, highly recommended festival to submit to, and attend in person. Also the Rio theatre is one of the very best theatres there is, period.
