Videodrunk is a small indie/underground/horror film festival that will be taking place in Toronto this November. The festival is run by filmmakers and video artists and aims to present an eclectic collection of films to audiences in a non-formal easy going non-cinema environment (usually with beer). Amateurs, students, DIYers and pros all are treated as equals.
Essentially we're the film festival version of punk rock.
We encourage all types of filmmakers to submit. We do show features but try to focus on shorts. Video art is also cool but be warned we don't show a lot of it (it may be included in a pre-show). Be warned, we have only 15 slots a night.
As a Canadian festival, want to be a platform for Canadian short film, as such we have a Canadian category for short films with preferred pricing for Canadian shorts under 2 minutes. No films from outside Canada that are under 2 minutes will be shown.
