Open to Feature films, Narratives and documentaries

Short films must be submitted to the festivals directly.

Telefilm Canada is currently accepting entries on behalf of the 36th Sundance Film Festival and the 72nd Berlinale. Unfortunately, due to the global crisis, the selection screenings usually organized in a theatre in Montreal by Telefilm Canada for each festival's delegates cannot be confirmed. For now, Telefilm Canada will oversee the registrations on behalf of the festivals and will confirm later this summer whether films will be assessed in Montreal or at the festivals' offices. 

Films submitted via Telefilm Canada will be exempt from the submission fee.
