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 August 2018 DRAMA & UNDER 5 MINUTE FEEDBACK Film Festival in Toronto was “Defining Experiences”. Every character on all of these presented films were attempting to define the current or past moments that they are living in.

This was a lively crowd. Seemed more of an industry crowd than our usual crowd of film lovers. Everyone had lots to say which of oucrse makes for a great night.

Moderator Kierston Drier is really coming into her own. She is closing in doing 40 events and she has really hit her stride. No one works harder than Kierston. Easily the MVP of the festival night. And make sure to listen to our Festival Roundup podcast.

See you at the festivals.
