Toronto Shorts International Film Festival provides a showcase for the best short-form cinema and its creators in the world. We feel that short form cinema and its creators should have their own premier film festival in Toronto deserving similar recognition given to the feature film and its creators. The heart of the festival will be our quality and scope of extraordinary film programming.

Toronto stands as the largest media market in Canada, it boasts the world-renowned Royal Ontario Museum, the massive Art Gallery of Ontario, the Soulpepper Theatre Company, the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, and now a premiere international short film festival.

In order to showcase the best short films and its filmmakers from around the world, we created the Toronto Shorts International Film Festival. Toronto Shorts is a where films from a wide spectrum intersect. Animations, documentaries, comedies, narrative, genre, and graduation short films from some of the finest film schools. Just relax and enjoy the thrill.
