DiggerFilms is an independent film company specializing in genre cinema. Whether it’s short or feature films, the creative team thrives to push the limit on each production. Based in Montreal, DiggerFilms can offer films with both American and European influences to please different crowds.
Being part of a new wave of indie genre films and festival communities in Quebec, DiggerFilms tries to support the local scene as much as possible by supporting the SPASM Film Festival and participating in the FantAsia Film Festival, as well as attending the most important Con on the American East-coast.
“DiggerFilms” came to life in 2003, in the aftermath of the shooting of “Stories of a Gravedigger Chapter 1: The Deadtime Stories.” Shot with less than 6 000$ dollars Canadian (about 4 000 US with the exchange rate of the time) “Stories of a Gravedigger” was a major landmark for the young filmmakers behind “DiggerFilms.” Trying to sell the movie took them all across the United States, allowing them to meet a large number of people in the horror industry.
Since then, “DiggerFilms” has produced quite a few short-films which have been screened at various festivals, like “Le Festival Fantasia,” “Festival Spasm de Montréal,” and the “Sainte-Maxime International Horror Film Festival” in France. “DiggerFilms” has also been awarded various awards like “Best Directing,” “Best Killing Scene” and “Public Choice Award” for the movie “The Hit.” Their last short-film, “Dead Pussy” is starring two well known actors in Quebec : Jean-Nicolas Verreault and Normand D’Amour.
