The Dirties

Play Trailer

This clever and darkly comical mockumentary follows a pair of bullied teens who conflate fantasy with reality while making a revenge movie. Maverick Toronto filmmaker Matt Johnson (Nirvanna the Band the Show, Operation Avalanche) shot the film for only $10,000 at high schools across Toronto including Thornlea, Rosedale Heights and Etobicoke Collegiate. Winner of Slamdance’s Best Narrative Feature award in 2013, and Kevin Smith’s official endorsement as "the most important movie you will see all year.”

Filmmaker and star Matt Johnson will be joined onstage by actor Owen Williams for a Q&A following the film.
