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.

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

    The communication was excellent. And getting the audience feedback film was so helpful - especially at the moment where we can't screen films or hear our audience

    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.
