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.

    I am very grateful to the festival for the opportunity it has given us to spread the culture of the Basque people through the short film Harria Herria.
    I would also like to thank those responsible for the festival for sending us the feedback video. We were very happy to receive such beautiful words from the public.
    Very happy to have been awarded the best film. THANKS a lot. An incredible experience that we will never forget.

    This is by far, one of the best virtual Film Concerts I've ever attended. Excellent selection in the array of films as well as wonderful audience feedback and a very organized program. Thank you for all that you do!

    This festival was a beautiful and unique opportunity in showcasing our short film "Forget Me Not". Unlike most festivals, we received a video review of our film. We're so grateful for this extra effort and really enjoyed listening to the reflections and feedback. Thank you for helping to promote this piece of work!

    My short film got nominated and was awarded "Best sound & music".

    I'm very pleased with the approach of this festival. The organization has a great network and access to different festivals and partners like Wildsound Festival and FEEDBACK festival. I'm happy with the feedback the audience gave me cause it was objective and published on YouTube so I could also share it with our public. They had really attention for detailed and gave openly their point of view toward the videoclip even though the music wasn't really their kind of music to listen to. I appreciate a lot their comments.

    Wildsound Festival worked this year with Virtual City Cinema. A new online event. I guess due the pandemic. A great initiative that also helped spread the short films around the globe. I got a private link to watch the event through Eventbrite but due the difference in hours I wasn't able to attend it. It would be great to be able to watch the short films later if they are public.

    The communication was on time and accurate. I'm also glad they engage with you after the award to promote your artwork. This make this festival a real partner to work with. Highly recommended.
