What filmmakers are saying.... 

I was blown away by the quality of all the shorts and felt honoured to be included with them. As filmmakers, it’s important for us to share our stories with an audience to complete the circle from story idea through production to screening. The Toronto International Short Film Festival was the perfect opportunity to bring my film to a captive audience, and I’m grateful for your support. You’re doing a great job of offering an important festival of films to the region. Keep up the good work!
