Announcing PreShow and Periscope projects

The Videodrunk Film Festival is pleased to inform everyone we will be presenting a half hour long pre-show consisting of more experimental and ambient short films and video art pieces prior to our main show each night.

This program will be part of our pre-show broadcast via Periscope which will include a QnA with local filmmakers showing at the festival. We will also be broadcasting our selection meetings and other key events prior to the festival and our award announcements. We will be experimenting with the platform over the coming months so keep an eye out.

Shameless Plug for our Hosts

Quick shout out to our 2017 hosts Farside in Chinatown East. They do these great video shows every single week and they might just be the must attend weekly event in Toronto’s East End.

We highly suggest you check them out and grab a Sweet Grass while you’re there 🙂

If you don’t believe us read this.
