TORONTO AFTER DARK BACKGROUND INFO
Toronto After Dark Film Festival’s Primary Goal is to theatrically showcase new, innovative, independent, local and international genre cinema, including horror, sci-fi, action and cult films, both short and feature length, in front of local audiences that would otherwise rarely get the chance to see these movies on the Big Screen. The Secondary Goal of the festival is to host events around our screenings that allow festivalgoers and filmmakers to interact in an accessible and relaxed setting. The Third goal of the festival is to assist the filmmakers by generating great publicity and word of mouth for their films that ultimately leads to greater interest in and distribution of their films. Both audiences and filmmakers are typically ecstatic with the results we have delivered following these three goals over 10 years, and you can read what filmmakers have to say about us here.
