Toronto Film Channel Awards is an IMDb qualifier festival and a screening platform with a monthly and annual event dedicated to international and Canadian features and shorts of all genres.

Our IMDb qualifying monthly competition is an online event and our annual festival premiers some of our best films of the year and invites the filmmaker to attend our festival in Toronto. Film lovers will also receive free passes to attend our annual event.

The award winning films of each monthly edition can choose to screen on Toronto Film Channel to industry professionals, friends, cast, crew and families on social media. The films will not stay online. The films are non-downloadable and only screen for 2 hours on the day the award winners are annouced.

We also have created an affordable publicity category with many important benefits for indie filmmakers who are interested in promoting films on Toronto Film Magazine with stills, trailer, poster and interview. The interview can be with the director, producer, writer or any member of the cast and crew of film projects.

Toronto Film Channel Awards seeks to promote, award and screen international and Canadian films of all genres. We have created many breakthroughs in the career of talented filmmakers.
