Toronto Independent Film Festival
A Celebration of Indie Filmmaking at the Carlton Cinema in Downtown Toronto
The Toronto Indie is Toronto’s own film festival for truly independent films, and a headline event for micro-budget and no-budget films in North America. The Toronto Indie offers a fantastic opportunity for undiscovered filmmakers to showcase their achievements, in a space where all the key players of the film industry have gathered.
We’ll screen over 80 features and shorts over 10 days at the Carlton Cinema, one of Toronto’s favorite indie film venues.
Toronto Indie uses the strength of Toronto’s sizable independent filmmaking community to put on a fantastic festival. It’s an indie film festival by and for indie filmmakers.
The entire film industry in gathered in Toronto in September, which makes the Toronto Independent Film Festival the perfect place to screen your project to sales agents, distributors, and investors. Numerous To Indie projects have been picked up for distribution on the back of their screening at our festival, and our festival team will work with you to help with any deals.
Note that Toronto Indie, aka the Toronto Independent Film Festival, is a separate festival from the Toronto International Film Festival, which runs at the same time.
