The Sixth Annual International Vancouver Badass Film Festiva

Delightful Dapper Demon Mister Nickel ascends from Hades to speak the names of the Covid cancelled Sixth Annual International Vancouver Badass Film Festival 2020 Genre Film and Script Contest award winners whose show would have been tonight at the Rio. Ok, he missed one and the other podium finishing scripts (I’ll post a full list shortly, but I don’t want to steal his thunder) vbaff.com for more infoContest award winners whose show would have been tonight at the Rio. 

Welcome

 

The directors of the Sixth Annual International Vancouver Badass Film Festival March 27-29 in East Vancouver are absolutely crushed to have to announce the cancelation of the 2020 festival due to the COVID-19 pandemic, in accordance with the March 12, 2020 BC public health recommendations.


Earlier bravado from B1-6 beloved host/performer characters Badass Val ( Tristan Risk) and Bad Mama Mack (Samantha Mack) aside, the recent “flattening the curve” data on mitigating the spread of the virus, coupled with the current horrifying experiences of our friends/colleagues in Northern Italy, make fully complying with the new BC Public Health recommendations on public gatherings a clear no-brainer. There is nothing more important or badass than doing everything we can to help mitigate the spread of a deadly pandemic.


Stay tuned for information on an online version of the 2020 Badass film and screenwriting awards. Filmmakers and screenwriters: your selection, finalist and nominations laurels and IMDb listable nominations and any subsequent awards are still absolutely valid AF. We are pleased to note that prize sponsors Whites are set to honour their 5k (feature) and 1K (script) in kind awards for the competition whose winners will be announced online on March 29.


Ticket buyers can be refunded at point of purchase / online. If able, consider donating your ticket costs to arts organizations/ artists hit hard economically by the pandemic or purchasing something delightful from the artists affiliated with the Badass fest.


Heartfelt thanks to everybody who had put so much hard work into making Badass 6 what would have been the biggest, best, community genre film festival yet.
