Who We Are...

The Cabbagetown Short Film Festival is a juried showcase for some of the world's best short films, receiving submissions from across Canada and the United States, as well as the UK, Europe, South America, Australia and Asia.

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 fringe festivals in the country.

But...where is Cabbagetown? 

Located in the heart of Toronto, Canada, Cabbagetown is an eclectic, economically diverse, multicultural and artistic neighbourhood which attracts thousands of visitors each September to the Annual Cabbagetown Festival. www.cabbageownTO.com

The two-hour Cabbagetown Short Film Festival screening includes an equally diverse program of original productions from both experienced and emerging filmmakers.  They need not be premieres, nor made in the year of the festival, but they cannot exceed 15 minutes in length. A panel of industry professionals juries the entries and  prizes are awarded in each category including comedy, drama, experimental, animation, and documentary. 

There is no entry fee.

The Cabbagetown Short Film & Video Festival celebrates excellence and is a rare gem in the world of film festivals.
