Festival occurs 3 times a month at our Los Angeles and Toronto events. See website for next events: https://experimentalfilmfestival.com/

Festivals takes place at the Carlton Cinemas in downtown Toronto, Canada. And at the LA LIVE Regal Cinemas in downtown Los Angeles.

NOTE: The festival has created a hybrid festival with 4 tiers to enhance your film and your festival experience. All accepted films receive all four tier options:

Tier #1 - Your film plays at either a public live event where we will record the audience reactions of your short or feature and then send you the feedback video. Or, it plays at a private festival event where the audience will record their comments/reactions to your film on their camera or phone, then we edit them and send you a promotional video. No matter what you will receive a promotional video of your film of people commenting on your film.

Tier #2 - We put up your film live on the Film Festival Streaming Service for 30 hours and invite a select industry audience to watch it. With this system, some films have already received a distribution deal as many platforms are looking for solid feature and short films. We can not guarantee anything of course but this has been very helpful to many in the past. (see testimonials below)

Then (Tier #3) we will send you a list of questions to answer for our blog interview that will promote you and your film. Then after that (Tier #4) we will set up a podcast interview on our popular ITunes show where will we chat with you about the process of how the film was made.


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:

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 36 times a year in Toronto & Los Angeles. Go to the website for information on the next events.

    What a treasure to have audience feedback and the various forms of visibility that the festival offers. Even though it was all on-line, I feel so connected to the audience. The organizers were very prompt and professional. I am so honored that Fight the Fear won a Best Narrative Dance Award with you. Thank you!
