Welcome to Crank International Action Film Festival, the first and only action film festival in Canada that celebrates the adrenaline-pumping genre of action movies. We believe that action movies are not just mindless entertainment but also powerful expressions of universal themes such as good versus evil, heroism, and sacrifice.

Our festival provides a platform to showcase and recognize the hard work and dedication of the people who make these films possible, including the stunt performers who risk their lives to deliver jaw-dropping experiences.

For many of us, action movies are a language that connects us to the characters and heroes who embody the archetype of good and bad. At Crank, we want to express our love for action on both big and small screens and create a community that celebrates the art of action. Whether you grew up watching action movies or are a new fan, we invite you to join us for an unforgettable experience that will allow you to ENJOY the ultimate networking event and celebration of action films and the people who make them.

Get ready to WATCH the most exciting and thrilling action movies from all over the world, and experience the similarities and differences in the language of action. Our festival is committed to providing a diverse selection of films that showcase the best of the genre. But that's not all - at Crank, we're also dedicated to helping you LEARN from the people who make action movies possible. Take part in our action experts panel to gain valuable insights and learn from the best in the business.

This is what we're all about at Crank International Action Film Festival - creating a space where action movie lovers can come together to celebrate their passion for the genre. Whether you're a casual moviegoer or a die-hard fan, you'll find something to love at Crank.

    The best communication ;) So much enthusiasm and energy. I'm very sad that I wasn't there on the event. I will make this up in the future.

    Crank was a fantastic film festival and they really went out of their way to deliver. Compared to other festivals I've been involved in, they were very easy to communicate with, their laurels were well designed and given in a wide variety of options, and the fact that they actually sent you really materials in the main after your win made it all the more cool. Definately definately worth it to join.
