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.

    What an amazing support team! I had great feedback and just so much support from the representatives. Things have been so unsettling since Covid19, but this event felt so professional and rewarding. Receiving recognition from such a prestigious film festival, really made me feel happy about my work. Thank you all for taking the time to review my film and providing much-needed feedback. I will definitely return for my next project and until then I will continue to support Toronto Doc Short Film Festival!

  • It was a great and candid festival. I really appreciate the efforts of the festival committee and everyone contributed. At these times of isolation caused by the Covid-19 crisis, I find the effort very valuable. And I was honored and overwhelmed by the comments of the audience at feedback event. Thank you for including my film to the festival.

  • This was a great festival. They did a great job promoting my film and worked very hard at it with a post festival podcast and a video of audience feedback.

  • What a great festival!!! There is so much value here for filmmakers and attendees. My film won the Best Music award and they provided me with an edited video of audience feedback that I have used a lot for marketing. It's so great to have this kind of support from people that clearly care a lot about what they do. I will definitely be submitting my next documentary and I can't wait to see this festival grow.
