Vidlings & Tapeheads Film Festival YEAR III

Welcome to the third annual Vidlings & Tapeheads Film Festival!

Vidlings & Tapeheads is dedicated to celebrating & promoting unconventional stories. We love films with a unique voice that tell their stories in an unusual way, experiment with the medium, or sincerely 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. We accept short films under fifteen minutes completed anytime after June of 2017.

Call for Entry
