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 November 2018 Experimental/Music/Dance Feedback Film Festival in Toronto was “Confinement”.

Each film was about someone or something being confined to an area.

A great festival. Perhaps the best group of fans that have every atttended one of our events. People were simply into these films. They loved them and the artistic creations that all 12 of these shorts showcased.

We split the festival into two parts: First Half was all about Music. 2nd Half was all about Dance. It was a great blend of creation and we will continuing to do it this way.

See you at the festivals.
