Since 2016, the FEEDBACK Film Festival has been showcasing the best of Documentary Short Films. We now will be showcasing a Documentary Film Festival every month in the heart of downtown Toronto at the Carlton Cinemas.

We have created a hybrid festival with 4 tiers to enhance your film and your festival experience. All accepted films receive all four tier options:

Tier #1 - Your film plays at a private festival event where the audience will record their comments/reactions to your film on their camera or phone, then we edit them and send you a promotional video. No matter what you will receive a promotional video of your film of people commenting on your film.

Tier #2 (optional) - We put up your film live on our FILM FESTIVAL APP for 24 hours and invite a select industry audience to watch it. With this system, some films have already received a distribution deal as many platforms are looking for solid feature and short documentaries. We can not guarantee anything of course but this has been very helpful to many in the past. (see testimonials below)

Then (Tier #3) we will send you a list of questions to answer for our blog interview that will promote you and your film. Then after that (Tier #4) we will set up a podcast interview on our popular ITunes show where will we chat with you about the process of how the film was made.


We also will be showcasing winning documentary treatments at our festival every single month.

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.

The Documentary Short Festival was created for filmmakers. The goal is to showcase the best of documentary talent in film from around the world.

    It's been an awesome experience with the team at Toronto Documentary Feature & Short Film Festival! We were honored to be the Winner of Best Short Form Short Film for our project The Lost Jews of Pakistan. And really Matthew and Allison were a pleasure to interact with and the festival itself really gives you so much exposure with blog write-ups, podcast interviews and your film streaming live on their app. This festival is definitely worth the time and effort to submit to!
