THE GADABOUT is a DIY Film Festival that curates an annual short film program that tours internationally.
We had a fantastic weekend. It was really amazing to finally see all the films together. The program was impressive, entertaining, and a good mix of styles, genres, and mediums. Thank you to all the filmmakers who’s work was showcased, The Gadabout has been out to prove that DIY/Low Budget filmmaking DOES NOT mean lack of quality, and you all further proved that. Thanks also to everyone who came out to the festival. It felt really great to share the weekend with you.
Keep an eye out for tour dates, and upcoming screenings!
We are excited to announce that the Gadabout will be screening DEAD WEIGHT at our upcoming festival in Bloomington, IN. It’s a post apocalyptic feature film shot in Wisconsin. In true DIY fashion, this film was made through the committed effort of a group of friends playing on the strengths of their resources. We are really looking forward to sharing this film with you!
