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.

    It was terrific to be a part of this festival that is designed around giving feedback for projects. Audience responses were well thought out and helpful. Participants had a nuanced appreciation of cinematic language and its potential, which has in turn helped me convey my project to a wider audience.

    The feedback of the audience turned to be the most giving and touching instance in this path as new filmmaker. Deeply thankful, Rod.
