Presented by Kevin Smith THE DIRTIES is a ground-breaking dark comedy directed by emerging young director Matt Johnson that reimagines the found-footage genre by creatively blurring the lines between quirky fantasy and disturbing reality.
Filled with film references and witty humour, THE DIRTIES cleverly addresses an important social issue in an innovative new way and from an uncharted prospective.
THE DIRTIES follows two movie-obsessed best friends Matt and Owen who are the key targets for a group of high-school bullies they call ‘The Dirties’. When the pair is assigned a film class project they set out to make an epic film about getting their revenge. However Matt’s fantasies quickly spiral out of control, transforming THE DIRTIES into a complex and gripping story of friendship, obsession and violence.
