Vidlings & Tapeheads Film Festival
Thursday, Friday, and Saturday
July 7 -9 at Ant Hall & Ghost Light
The Vidlings & Tapeheads Film Festival programs unconventional narratives—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!
The inaugural VTFF will take place on July 7th & 8th, 2017. The festival will feature Live Music Performances, an Art Exhibition, and of course — lots of Films! July 9th will cap the weekend with a filmmaker and VIP-only Award Ceremony Brunch & Excursion.
Our opening night kickoff party will feature live music performances and filmmaker social. The film screenings are all day Saturday the 8th. Four short film blocks will screen in the following categories: Made in Michigan, Documentary, Animation, and Fiction. There will be live music and filmmaker Q&As between each film block. Festival attendees will be able to take in our art exhibition throughout the day and mingle with local artists and filmmakers. The night will wrap with a party set to the closing night bands. Sunday’s Award Ceremony brunch and excursion is closed to the public, but available for VIP Passholders, volunteers, performing musicians, artists, and the filmmakers themselves.
