NOTE: This festival is still taking place each week despite the COVID-19 virus. All festival dates have been relegated to private screenings with the same Audience FEEDBACK videos made for the short films.

The Experimental Film, Dance and Music Festival now runs EVERY SINGLE MONTH - Due to the popularity of the genre, films and festival screening. So submit your work and get it showcased at the FEEDBACK Festival.

Festival occurs in two cities: At the Carlton Cinemas in downtown Toronto, Canada, and at the LA LIVE Regal Cinemas 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.

Get your short film or music video showcased at the FEEDBACK FIlm Festival and garner and audience feedback video:

Get examples of what you';ll receive:

We will try to program all submitted works. Accepted works get their film screened at the festival and will receive an audience feedback video of their film after the festival.

Experimental festivals occur 12 times a year in Toronto & Los Angeles. Go to the website for information on the next events.

    I wasn’t able to attend the event and any feedback would be amazing. If you have an official to send me of anything I would love that. I’ve never been able to attend a single contest as the one nearest me was cancelled due to covid 19 and I’m sure that will continue...

    What an amazingly unique Film Festival!! I am so thankful to the Feedback Experimental Film Festival for accepting my film Minstrel vs. Puppet into their 2020 Festival!! While I was not able to go, I nearly felt like I was there after watching the feedback video of audience commentary on my film that they created for me. I loved watching that and will be sharing it with many via the film website and beyond! My family who does live in Toronto, CA was able to attend the Experimental FF and they said they loved it! Such a great film festival that offers its filmmakers a timeless lens into the audience perspective of their art.
