    Great communication and friendly staff! We weren't able to attend, which was a huge bummer for us, but everything about Videodrunk is super cool and awesome. They have great taste in curating films, they're in a very cool venue, and we're so happy to have won the Wooden Spoon Award. An honor we can totally get behind. Thanks Videodrunk!

    It was a great experience to be part of this festival- I felt that my film found a home where it is being understood and appreciated. A great festival that looks for a bold artistic approach to film. The panel discussion was interesting and professional.
