Who We Are...

The Cabbagetown Short Film Festival is a juried showcase for some of the world's best short films.

Cabbagetown resident, Gina Dineen, a Toronto actress, producer and York University Film School graduate, founded the festival in 1992.
Since then, the festival has grown substantially from a celebration of local filmmakers to one of the best international festivals in the country.

Cabbagetown, located in the heart of Toronto, Canada,  is an eclectic, economically diverse, multicultural and artistic neighbourhood which attracts thousands of visitors each September to enjoy the annual  community  festival. 

From the hundreds of  entries submitted annually, the Cabbagetown Short Film Festival selects  adiverse program of original productions from both experienced and emerging filmmakers.   A panel of industry professionals juries the entries and  prizes are awarded in each category including comedy, drama, experimental, animation, and documentary. 

The Cabbagetown Short FilmFestival celebrates excellence and is a rare gem in the world of film festivals.
