Registration, fees and screening format

Registration process

  • Step 1: Complete the Telefilm Canada registration form and select the festivals for which you wish to submit your film to.
  • Step 2 : An email with the next steps will be sent to you shortly after your registration is reviewed and the eligibility of your film is confirmed.


**Short films must be submitted directly to the Festival **


Registration fees

The Festival waives its entry fees for films submitted via Telefilm Canada.

If you choose to submit a DCP, you will be required to pay the submission and shipping fees.




Screening Format


  • Screener link only
  • Films in a language other than English must be subtitled in English at the moment of the submission

Your image editing should be final. The programmers are used to viewing work at the post-production stage (i.e. with no colour timing, no final mix, etc.) and, as such, know how to “fill in the technical gaps.”
