There is an episode about this festival in our archives as we talk about the audience and all the great films we showcased at this event.

The theme of the September 2018 FEMALE/UNDER 5 MINUTE FEEDBACK Film Festival in Toronto was “Power Dynamics”.

Each film was about an individual(s) facing dynamics of power with another individual or external being.

This was a nice split festival of a showcase of Female Directors in the first half, and Under 5 Minute Films in the second half. Two of our most popular events that are showcased in Toronto. So why not start the Fall 2018 season off with a bang!?

This was the last festival for a while for moderator Kierston Drier who has taken a job that she couldn’t pass up that conflicts with the weekly events. Kierston is the ultimate professional who does an outstanding job. She will be missed, but most definitely will be coming back soon.

See you at the festivals.
