Festival takes place at the Carlton Cinemas in downtown Toronto, Canada.
FULL FEEDBACK on your film from the audience! SUBMIT ANYTIME!
Submissions take 3-7 weeks for evaluation.
Why the this is the fastest growing Documentary Film Festival in the world today:
– Your film will get screened in front of a large, broad audience.
– We are a feedback festival and you will actually hear what people and action/adventure film lovers think of your film.
– Your film is screened and then talked about with the audience, lead by a Professional Industry moderator.
Even if your film is not selected, you will receive the full feedback from the viewing committee. The goal of the Film Festival is to help everyone involved grow as an artist, so we will offer some kind of constructive criticism whether or not we accept your entry for the formal festival. If your film is not accepted, you are allowed to re-submit (sans any entry fee) using the suggested changes the committee made.

Hearing the audience’s responses compelled me to raise the bar of what I should have expected from myself in making this film. The feedback video is a great concept and I cannot express how important it was to have it as a record of the viewing experience at time when I could not be present for the screening.
– Vinit Parmar, Director “Quest for Energy”
I’ve had my work shown in festivals before but I’ve never had the experience of being in a room with 100 people all engaging in a discussion about a film I made. The coolest part of it was seeing that people in audience who I didn’t think would enjoy the film giving positive feedback about it. I always pictured that you would need to have some sort of understanding of death-metal music to enjoy the film but I couldn’t be more pleased to discover that wasn’t the case.
– Sean Singh, Director of “Suburban Deathcore”
I was thrilled with the audience response to the film. Some people in particular really “got” it, pointing to the words “and yet” in the opening haiku as the hint of hopefulness in the film. The shot of the school of fish shifting direction connotes that hope of a shift in consciousness.
