Vidlings & Tapeheads Film Festival 2022 Wrap-Up

Five years! I’ve been told that’s a rare milestone in the film festival landscape—that the vast majority of fests never make it to a fifth year. And while I don’t know if we’ll make it to ten (or nine, or seven), I’m feeling pretty good about what we’ve accomplished so far.

VTFF2022 Award Winners

VTFF2022 featured twenty-nine in-competition short films from around the world, twenty of which were Michigan Premieres! We’re so thankful to have had the opportunity to share all of these films with our audience and are excited to see our alumni’s future projects. Many thanks to our programmers and jury for their curation and dedication to promoting unconventional storytelling. Filmmaker prizes this year have been prodigiously provided by Final Draft, Videomaker, and Toon Boom Animation.

And now, the WINNERS…
