Have you made a feature or short film that just does not fit into the mainstream multiplex theatre? If you have and if your film has not screened in Saskatoon then you should be sending it in for submission as soon as possible. While not a straight up genre festival we do have a genre bent to the films which will be selected. We like to feel that we are a cross between a straight up genre festival and an underground film festival.

Please note we tend to not screen experimental films.

Please take a look at our Film Archive to see if your film would fit as part of our festival.

    A great festival in a beautiful city with amazing staff. Great atmosphere and selection overall. They really care about the films and the filmmakers. They made us feel incredibly welcome. We were fortunate to have our film accepted and shown at this festival and can report we thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. The films were shown in a lovely theatre run by local and friendly staff.

    We strongly recommend this festival.

    Response from festival:

    Thank you for your kind words. We aren't the biggest festival but our focus has always been to connect interesting films with the Saskatoon audience and it was great to show your short film up on the big screen.
