Below is just a small selection of the massively positive feedback Toronto After Dark Film Festival has received from filmmakers who have screened at our festival in recent years:
“We had a wonderful showing of our film at the Toronto After Dark Film Festival, which was our Canadian Premiere. The staff were so passionate about the films that were showing. I would recommend anyone with a genre film to submit to this fest, it’s a fantastic place to find an audience for your film.”
—Jamie Bullock, Producer, BEACH PARTY AT THE THRESHOLD OF HELL

“I had such a wonderful time screening our film, at the Toronto After Dark Film Festival. More than any festival I’ve ever been to, Toronto After Dark has the feeling of being run by film lovers, for film lovers. They played movies that were exciting, and would otherwise be very hard to find. As for our screening, I couldn’t have been more pleased. The lineup for our film was around the block!”
—Hal Haberman, Director, SPECIAL
“It’s awfully tough to get recognition from more traditional festivals. Toronto After Dark is a great opportunity for those of us labouring away in the dark recesses of genre cinema!”
—Mike Jackson, Short Filmmaker, THE VEIL

“I couldn’t have asked for a better response from people who share my obsession with all things fantastical. The people responsible for Toronto After Dark have given me nothing but positive support and assistance with my film.”
—Steven Kostanski, Short Filmmaker, FANTASY BEYOND
“Toronto After Dark Film Festival is a fantastic venue for those great films that don’t fit into the mainstream”
