Upcoming Film Festivals in Toronto, March - May 08


As the snow melts and the parka's turn to pullovers, it's time to consider the upcoming festival season. We have many exciting festivals that will soon be in out midst ranging from homegrown talent to films from afar and everything in between. I'm really looking forward to the Canadian Film Fest because Canadian film rocks! Also, it's great to see The Toronto Singapore Film Festival which is just in its third year! As we move closer to the hope of summer months we get to some of the biggies in film festival land with Images, hotdocs and Inside Out. Everything looks so good this year, I can't wait to get in the festival spirit. I hope the snow stays at bay or for the very least inside queues!

So many festivals, so little time. What piques your interest for the next few months?

You really are in the right place for movies Shannon, I can not BELIEVE how many film festivals are going on. The Canadian and the women's film fests look fantastic. Oh I envy you!

Wow, thanks for collecting this all in one place. I can't wait for HotDocs, Female Eye and InsideOut, and would love to check out the others as well. Don't think I can make it to everything though - will have to live through your prolific attendance!
