This festival is designed to showcase the best of LGBT stories from around the world today! We accept screenplays (short, TV Pilot, feature) and short films from all corners of the world.

We are proud to showcase a winning LGBT screenplay at our festival every single month!! Go to the site and watch the winning readings each month.

All entries receive full feedback from the industry. Accepted screenplays get their screenplays performed by professional actors. Accepted short films get their movie showcased at the FEEDBACK Film Festival at the Carlton Cinemas, located in The Village in downtown Toronto.

One of North America’s leading gay destinations, Toronto has been holding Pride observances since the ’70s. The Pride parade draws more than 1.2 million spectators and participants annually, making it one of the top such draws in the world. Before the parade, the festival will take place. The cinema is located in the Church & Wellesley area, where all of the Pride Events take place.

    A very helpful festival for a young filmmaker such as myself. The audience feedback provided was great and I appreciated the extra time they took to do this. Highly recommend submitting.

    Entering this festival was awesome! Their team responded promptly and even provided feedback to help me improve my script. It was a great experience! It's always nice hearing directly from the team at the festival and getting quality feedback.

    The whole process has been wonderful, the team was extremely helpful and great with communication, they even converted my film last minute before screening as it was not fit for their system! Their feedback video left me in tear, it was so great to hear directly from the audience what they thought about our work. Thank you so much all!
