Film Festival with Live Music and Art Exhibition, 2017–Present
Celebrating & promoting unconventional stories in film + music + art
The Vidlings & Tapeheads Film Festival programs films with a unique voice that tell stories in an unusual way, experiment with the medium, or explore eclectic subject matter and themes. We encourage and celebrate subversiveness, innovative use of materials and budget, and quirky independent work that doesn’t fit comfortably within any one genre.
VTFF features Live Music Performances, an Art Exhibition, and of course — lots of Films! We cap the festivities with a filmmaker and VIP-only Award Ceremony Brunch & Excursion.
There’s something magical about watching movies with filmmakers and an audience that really gives a shit. Something amazing about the crazy days and long nights hanging out with fellow dreamers and makers. The thrill of discovery! I’ve been particularly inspired by fests that foster a creative community, involve music and art, and are anchored in a city or neighborhood that is often overlooked or underappreciated.
