The Experimental Film, Dance and Music Festival runs every three months at the Carlton Cinemas in downtown Toronto, Canada, and starting in 2018, also at the LA LIVE Regal Cineams in downtown Los Angeles, USA.
The goal of this festival is to showcase the best of new experimental short films and independent music videos from around the world. Films that don’t get a fair shake from other film festivals because programmers don’t know where to “categorize” these films. There isn’t a typical linear story occurring so most festivals can’t truly understand the talent and beauty around these films.
We want to showcase films that showcase true originality and talent from filmmakers from every corner of the globe. And also showcase new musicians who have made a music video and want it to be shown.
This festival is part of the FEEDBACK Film Festival, so after the film is shown, we turn on the lights and ask the audience what they think of the films. With this format we promise a SOLD OUT crowd and a positive conversation. Our audience is sophisticated and won’t divulge into negative and judgemental talk.
