GeekFest Toronto is everything Geeky and Nerdy in the form of Films, Documentaries, Presentations and Demos.

Have you ever seen a a film that was DNA code set to music...? We have. Have you ever seen a documentary where puppets race radio controlled cars...? We have. Have you ever been on Reddit or hooked on Ingress. We have. We are.

So that's what GeekFest Toronto is all about. A celebration for people like us who know who we are and how neat it is to be either Geek or a Nerd.

We don't need a porkpie hat, skinny jeans or a bushy beard to let the world know who we are. We just need maybe the latest gadget, a cool game, a unusual topic and a movie we can relate to. And friends who relate to us.

So let's see those Films, Documentaries, Presentations and Demos.

Our goal is to always program films and documentaries and compliment them with a topical discussion, presentation or demo from experts and enthusiasts.

GeekFest Toronto 'Best of Fest' Prize is eligible to all categories, including Speakers.
GeekFest Toronto 'Canada Geeks' Prize is eligible to all categories but ONLY to Canadian entrants, including Speakers.
GeekFest Toronto will also honor 1-2 'Honorable Mention' Prizes in all Categories.

    Although we couldn't be there in person, we hear that the festival went extremely well, and that the audience really enjoyed our film. The staff at Geek Fest Toronto were very nice and really promoted both the Fest and our film extensively. Plus they honored us with an "Honorable Mention" award! So thanks Geek Fest Toronto!

    GeekFest Toronto holds an incredible event! Set in the heart of Toronto in a great and trendy location. Their team was respectful and always provided answers. They were great on communication and even helped us get PR and an Interview on TV! I would put this festival in the top 100 most worthy festival to submit to as it was worth every dollar!! Thanks GeekFest for the wonderful experience and for our Win!
