So submissions are now closed! YAY! Now we pick the films, this process starts tomorrow evening. We will livestream parts of the selection process.
We want to thank everyone who submitted to Videodrunk this year.
Time for a quick update, we have moved the festival from Nov 22-24 to Nov 29-Dec 1. We will still be at the Silver Mill and we have so far partnered with Catapult Brewing, PRESS Books Coffee Vinyl and Troi Mailing Services.
The 2018 Videodrunk Film Festival will take place at the Silver Mill in Toronto.
The Silver Mill is devoted to creating a transdisciplinary space serving Toronto’s East End’s creative community that bridges the gap between traditional artistic practices and technology, and where the exploration and realization of unique projects can flourish.
We are pleased to be working with them.
In addition the 2018 edition will be dedicated to the memory of our friend Madeline Scheur.
Videodrunk is seeking volunteers to help with the 2018 festival. Must be in either Toronto or Hamilton and have some film experience. This job is ideal for students.

If you’re in the Boston-area come check out February Dispatches: The Best of the Videodrunk Film Festival of Toronto on February 1st at the Somerville Theater. The event will be the second stop on Videodrunk’s Winter tour. This show will be a condensed version of our Hamilton show with the following films:
This show is part of Dispatches From The Underground, a series of features or curated shorts block presented every month at the Somerville Theater by the Boston Underground Film Festival.
We dedicate this screening to Tony Hunt and Johnny Bower
Because Videodrunk has been able to last this long, we’ve been able to make some nice friends who like what we’re doing. As a result they’ve asked us to throw together a best of playlist of sorts and hit the road. Meaning we’re driving an hour to Hamilton and then flying an hour to Boston.
The “best of” tour will include a Canadian heavy line-up of past audience favourites and prize winners and will take place on Jan. 6 at Hamilton’s Casino Artspace and Feb. 1 at Boston’s Somerville Theater (ok it’s in Somerville, not Boston), presented with the aid of Boston Underground Film Festival.
The line-ups will not be announced because surprise!
Submissions are now open for Videodrunk 2018. We have some special things planned.
Sorry for the delay….we needed a detox. Videodrunk 2017 has come and gone and boy was it swell. We want to thank Farside, Sweetgrass, Fa-Rael, Troi, Pile of Bones, BUFF, Film Freeway, Made of Worms, Lex Corbert, Dayaan and Dayna Edwards, Michael E. Dennis, Ryan Wicks, Emil Terziev, Joseph Zambri and all our our patrons for coming out. Most of all we want to thank the filmmakers for making the event one of our strongest programs yet! You are all wonderful and talented and we at Videodrunk adore you.
We want to thank those who travelled into too attend, it means the world to us that you value you events like this enough to come to Toronto from L.A., Chicago, Hamilton, VA and Hamilton, ON. It melts our hearts to see that kind of love for film.
We again got to offer films that would otherwise not be seen by the city of Toronto and we take pride in doing so no matter where they originated (Afghanistan, Israel, Russia, South Africa, Finland, Brazil). It’s fucking awesome that an event as tiny as Videodrunk was given the chance to show such a global array of talent by you and we thank you.
We are thankful to the filmmakers from Toronto, Hamilton, Calgary, Vancouver, Montreal, Regina and Dawson City allowed us the chance to show some of the best works Canadians are currently making. Thank you.
With all festivals we have some prize winners and they were
KING VIDEOR: FULL WAVEFORM INVERSION (David Nast Cole/USA
BEST CANADIAN FILM: POOR MAN’S EVIL DEAD (Kristine Kleist, Kevin Buessecker and Zach Bryson/Canada)
WOODEN SPOON: THE POWER (Jacob Smith/USA)
It’s getting late here and we’re drunk and there are likely typos in the message so we want to close by saying THANK YOU, we had a lot of glitches this year but this event was worth every minute of it. We hope to see you next year with some big news.
Thanks to our friend Joe for another awesome design! Hitting the streets of Toronto very soon.
