    Are you ready to get your GRIND ON?   

DIRT IN THE GATE MOVIES are back for its FOURTH, TWO DAY fun filled cinematic extravaganza of classic genre movies… Welcome to GRINDFEST 2022!

Our search of film archives the world over leaves no film can unopened to bring rare 35mm prints out of the darkness and are thrilled to screen them on the big screen in their original native release format!

After the amazing response of 2019's fantastic short films (BAGHEAD, DAUGHTER OF DISMAY, THE VIDEOSTORE COMMERCIAL) which were sprinkled throughout the GRINDFEST weekend, this year we are STOKED to dedicate a SHORT FILM SHOWCASE slot where you'll be able to enjoy a specially curated event of short films which we feel is an essential part of the legacy of cinema. Expect some surprises, giveaways, vintage trailers during the mind melting weekend of celluloid mayhem!
