The Backseat film festival first started way back in 2003. It was created to display all of the great rock 'n roll movies out there that get made every year and don't get seen by enough people. Also, there was free liquor. No wonder it was so popular!
The festival screened over 500 movies and served lots of booze. The festival had 7 editions, with huge numbers of people contributing films, attending the screenings and volunteering at the festival.
Although the festival hasn't ran for a number of years now, we'd love to see it return one day!
Backseat Film Festival isn't the only festival that has stopped running. Artivist, Angelus, Amelia Island, Optronica, Temecula, Big River, Muskegon, Humphrey Bogart Festival, Viscera, New York, Lifetree, Baystreet, SoCal Independent, North x North, Screentest, Minneapolis Underground, Julian Film Fest, San Antonio Independent Christian film festival, and Way Down, have all ended their festivals.
