Break Forth Canada is the country's largest church equipping and renewal conference. Now in it's 20th year, we are proud to launch #BFCFF, the BREAK FORTH CANADA FILM FESTIVAL! The scope of the event this year has expanded to bring together Christian film-makers, videographers, script-writers, film buffs and critics from across Canada in one venue for two exciting evenings.

How It Works:

Films will be reviewed by the Break Forth Canada Film Festival Director. The accepted films will be shown during the Break Forth Canada Conference weekend at the Shaw Conference Centre. Film festival attendance is open to conference registrants only.

While the Break Forth Canada Film Festival is primarily a faith based event, we encourage submissions from filmmakers with a broad array of topics and subject matter, with criteria outlined below:

1) Films do not have to be Biblical in nature but should reflect Biblical values and core Christian doctrines, and be appropriate for Christian audiences. Any submissions that contain purposeless profanity and/or depict nudity, sexual acts or gratuitous violence/gore will be disqualified. We reserve the right to reject films we feel a faith-based audience may find offensive.

2) Faith-based films must not be too denominationally doctrine specific. For example, we would accept films that may feature a certain type of church as part of the plot line, but not one that would alienate viewers from different denominations based on doctrine. We are accepting submissions of various genres and lengths: shorts, docs (short, medium & long form), and features.

3) Submissions must either be in English, or have English subtitles.

4) Films must be submitted in digital format through FilmFreeway.

5) A maximum of two entries per filmmaker will be considered.

6) Films must be recent, completed within the last two years.

7) Employees involved with Break Forth Canada are welcome to submit films, but those films will not be included in competition.
