Quinte Canadian FilmFest exists to celebrate Quinte West's heritage as a leading film centre from 1917 to 1934, and to promote our local artists, connecting them with a local audience and supporting them in their work while reigniting a vital film culture in the City of Quinte West.
The inaugural 2017 QCFF will showcase the best in Local and Canadian films over a three-day period, promoting and exhibiting our local filmmakers and their work as well as providing opportunities for the general public and filmmakers to connect at the festival. The festival is scheduled from September 29 to October 1.
The festival will feature film screenings in several venues in Quinte West, accompanied by an opening gala reception, red carpet interviews with filmmakers and dignitaries, a filmmakers’ reception, and Q&A sessions following screenings. To help fulfill Cinema Quinte’s mandate to support the development of the film industry in the local area, the festival will include a workshop for our local filmmakers to participate and develop their skills.
