Forest City Film Festival

We bring the best of the work of film artists connected to Southwestern Ontario in a juried competition for features, shorts, documentaries, short documentaries and short animations. Additionally, FCFF presents a selection of the best Canadian films of the year, industry workshops and networking, a screenplay competition, filmmaker Q&As, receptions and awards.

Our Mission

London Ontario’s Forest City Film Festival celebrates the art of cinema through a regional lens with a focus on national and global films and filmmakers connected to Southwestern Ontario. We honour successes, showcase new, compelling artists and inspire future ones.

We are building SWO’s film culture by championing and profiling films and filmmakers connected to the region and bringing leaders in the industry to acknowledge and celebrate us.

Our Belief

We believe that film and media is a crucial part of our culture and that by supporting the growth and development of film in our region we are also supporting our region as a strong cultural voice in our country.

We are offering audiences the opportunity to see and celebrate their own region’s talents and thereby to celebrate themselves.
