At The Overkill festival we show original content which you won’t see in a cinema, on TV or on Netflix. We give the self taught and independent filmmakers a stage for their work.

We screen the movies that are not deemed 'worthy' by big budget production companies, movies where filmmakers don't have to answer to producers with only financial gain. Movies made with crowdfunding and homemade special effects. These are, amongst other things, independent movies, underground movies, b-movies and fan movies.
