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 December 2018 Sci-Fi/Fantasy Feedback Film Festival in Toronto was “The Future”.

Each film was about a glimpse of the near future from the filmmaker’s perspective.

A great SOLD OUT festival with an audience representing all cultures, age, and diversities of today’s world. When the model was made to do a Feedback Festival and for the filmmaker’s to hear what the audiences think of their film – this was the crowd we had in mind.

All films represented the Sci-Fi/Fantasy genre as all stories told worked inside that model. That said, we also showcased animation, comedy, drama, romance, and thriller at this festival.

The 2nd to last festival of 2018. A great night.

See you at the festivals.
