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.

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 judgmental talk.

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

We will try to program all submitted works.

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

    Great opportunity for every filmmaker to get an honest and undisturbed feedback about their projects. Fantastic venue (one in downtown Toronto), and Matthew Toffolo (the MC and moderator) was always on point. He truly cares about the filmmaker and understands how to talk to the audience. Overall a wonderful experience, and I had an amazing time in Canada.

    Amazing festival taking place in an iconic cinema in Toronto. Grateful for the organizers efforts to make this happen and to include audiences. Being present hearing the immediate reactions and reviews from the audience was very interesting and thank you for the Q&A. It brings the filmmaker and audience together. Really sweet! Thanks for selecting Suckr for Love as Best Film of the evening!

    We were not present physically at the festival and we had the greatest honor to win the Best film price. On my opinion, the simple fact that the festival shares to you a youtube video of the audience feedback has an incredible value.

    It provide some physicality to the event when you are not living in the same country, a video you can share with your team, and interresting feedback of the audience. This is a game changer.

    Thank you !
