The Experimental Film, Dance and Music Festival runs every three months 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 judgemental talk.

    One of the best Festivals around. The Feedback of the movies is of the most importance and i was proud to be part of it with the short YOU.

    An unmeasurable amount of awesomeness! The format of the festival is very interesting and novel. Support must be given to festivals of this type. I take this opportunity to thank Feedback enormously for everything, and for screening my short film "A Forest"!!!

    Even though I was not able to attend the festival, I appreciated how clear the communication was and how respectful they were with the films and filmmakers. In addition, I enjoyed watching the audience's feedback video on my film and it made me feel like my art is being appreciated and I should keep making films. Thank you!

    The Experimental Film And Music Video Festival screened my short film "65,5 women", and it was a very good experience. The festival makes short clips of the audiences feedback, and it is amazing to be invited into the room of the viewers through the even though I am on the other side of the world.

    I had a great experience with this film festival! It's very helpful for a filmmaker to get constructive and objective criticism and that's exactly what this festival has to offer. If you're looking for an objective and unbiased feedback than this is a great place to start!
