Film Festivals in Toronto

The rabble podcast network offers an alternative take on politics, entertainment, society, stories, community and life in general. All opinions belong to the podcaster; however, podcasters are expected to adhere to our guidelines. We welcome new podcasters -- contact us for details.

We love films and we love community art initiatives. Film festivals are an amazing way to highlight great art, interesting ideas, important cultural movements, and a fun way to see films. In Toronto there are countless film festivals (70? 100? we're still looking). We have long-term goals of reviewing at one film from every film festival in Toronto in one year (maybe next year?) Well, not every festival, we figure TIFF gets a lot of coverage, so with our project we are hoping to put more spotlight on the many small, diverse festivals that also call Toronto home. We're calling this project Film Festivals in Toronto (or FFIT).

Our reviewers range from professors of films studies, students of film studies, Cinephiles and some folks who just love film. Reviews and festival reflections may be written, be on video, be a podcast, be on social media, etc. All will appear on rabble.ca
