We are Brainwash Movies, doing the Brainwash Movie Festival. We’ve been going every year for 24 years, and are looking forward to celebrating our 25th Silver anniversary this festival season, in July. Presenting an aesthetic beyond the parameters of the everyday & the usual, we expand into the roots of the underground, experimental & just plain charming. Our festival is a mainstay in the local, East Bay of the San Francisco Bay, CA, area.

We’re also looking for interested individuals to participate with us.

Hal Robins designed & drawn logo with laurels for Brainwash’s Silver 25th Anniversary Season.

Brainwash, since 1995, has delighted audiences with a selection of the bizarre, the unique, and just plain old well-made movies from independent producers all over the world. With an eye toward the abstract, the innovative and the weird, Brainwash salutes it’s 25th Silver Anniversary this 2019 season and will have a Unity Night of movies as well as a hot little Silver Anniversary Celebration. We have consistently attracted entries we curate to be able to display some of the most cutting edge cinema from up and coming directors, actors, producers and crews consistently year after year.
