23 Skidoo is a 1964 short experimental black-and-white film by Julian Biggs, produced by the National Film Board of Canada. Its central images are "eerie" and "disturbing" scenes of downtown Montreal devoid of people.[1][2]

In 1965 the film was nominated for a BAFTA Award for "Best Short Film", and was also nominated for a UN Award. It won "Special Mention" in the international competition at the Cracow Film Festival that year.[3]
