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:

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

Overall Rating
  • I wasn't able to attend the live screening but organisation and communication with participants are great. The festival has a fantastic ethos and both films and filmmakers are treated respectfully. I was fortunate the be included in the FEEDBACK festival and grateful to get intelligent feedback from a well-informed audience.

    This was a great festival. The films were great and the audience involvement was extremely enjoyable and enlightening as a filmmaker. We need more festivals like these.

    I couldn't attend the festival but two friends did it and they love it! Great atmosphere, well attended, a variety of strong works selected and the feedback session at the end make this festival quite unique. I wish we could have more of these experimental and independent film festival. And thank you for the Best Movie Award, truly an honor!

  • As many others have already said, the focus on giving the filmmaker access to live feedback from the audience makes this festival really unique. I also agree that the festival staff is really warm and encouraging. I've just started to collaborate with the festival on follow up interviews and am looking forward to seeing what comes from this in terms of networking. I would definitely enter this festival again and recommend it to others.
