Regent Park Film Festival (RPFF), is a non-profit cultural and educational media arts organization located at Daniels Spectrum. RPFF is Toronto’s longest-running, free community film festival, and is the sole community film festival in Canada’s largest and oldest public housing neighbourhood.
RPFF is dedicated to showcasing local and international independent works relevant to people from all walks of life. The key communities they serve are Black, Indigenous and People of Colour (BIPOC) communities, people who are low-income, people who live in social housing, and Regent Park residents. The films they present break stereotypes and show that no one place or person has just one story.
The Regent Park Film Festival is currently accepting submissions of both feature-length and short films in the following two categories for its 18th annual festival happening in November 2020:
Feature and short works from Indigenous filmmakers, Black filmmakers and filmmakers of colour. We invite films that explore themes of difference and solidarity, immigrant experiences, urbanization, cultural identity and that resonate with the inner-city, community based, transnational and varied realities of Regent Park, as well as similar communities in Toronto, in Canada, and all over the world.
Short films suitable for Grades 1-8, featuring themes relevant to and engaging for youth. This program encourages self-representation and seeks to promote dialogue among students, educators, filmmakers and the wider community.
The deadline to submit your feature and short films is Sunday, May 3rd at 11:59pm. For more information, view the submission form.
