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.

    Unlike any other festival. As a filmmaker receiving honest feedback about your work is so valuable and so hard to come by. I loved so much hearing from this festival. Not only with a podcast discussing my film, but also a video of audience reactions. amazing!

    I'm honored to have had my animation selected for this festival. No other festival I know of provides an audience feedback video and the communication was excellent. I wasn't able to attend in person, but hope to some day, looked like a great turnout.

    We could not participate at the festival, but they made video on feedback on our Music Video screening, and this was really interesting.
    Highly recommended!
