BONKERS! is een wervelende trip langs innovatieve, vreemde en bovenaardse films die de grenzen van genres doorbreken en zoeken naar nieuwe manieren om heilige huisjes op een eerbiedwaardige manier kapot te trappen. Soms absurd, soms schokkend, maar altijd goed, of in ieder geval goed voor een discussie achteraf. Ga mee het konijnenhol in en ervaar het filmfestival in zijn, laten we zeggen, puurste vorm.
