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.

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 other month in the heart of downtown Toronto at the Carlton Cinemas.

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

  • Toronto Documentary Feature & Short Film Festival is amazing. It has the same stuff most festivals have, but the killer feature is that they get audience members to film their reaction. That is so valuable! The first reviewer was in tears discussing our film. In a normal year, this would have been really impactful. In a pandemic -- all virtual -- year, this was my ONLY feedback from the audience. It is incredibly value as a filmmaker to hear this feedback. Well done!
