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:

NEW Showcase: Submit your FEATURE FILM and receive an audience feedback promotional/testimonial video of your film. Great video to use to get into more festivals and/or promote your film. All submissions receive feedback on their film no matter what.

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.

    Terrific festival! Well organised and well communicated, we have had great communication with the organisers and the audience feedback component is especially valuable, we very much appreciated hearing the thoughtful responses to our film. The diversity, creativity and calibre of work in this festival is wonderful. We're thrilled to be part of it and very honoured that our work Audible Lockdown received the Best Short Film award.

  • I would like to thank the Experimental, Dance & Music Fest for their professional promotion of my Best Short Film Award. Their audience feedback videos and interviews, which were free of charge, show they really want to cultivate and promote new artists who are really out there to make Art in its various forms. I can't say enough about this Festival being the REAL DEAL. Thank you for your Festival.
