Welcome to the Barrie Film Festival

Discover unique films year-round through Barrie Film Festival programming. We provide film fans unique experiences and seek out the best of the best in Independent cinema, featuring films from Canada and around the world. With over 160 public events and screenings in a typical year, there are many opportunities to enjoy award-winning and festival favourites on the big screen.

Although all our in-theatre screenings are currently suspended due to COVID-19, we have introduced some online programming. See our Virtual Cinema program where we have teamed up with film distributors to bring the theatrical experience to your home. We want to thank everyone that attended our digital Reel Stories Film Festival this year. We are grateful to all our Best Friends for Film!

Find more info, barriefilmfestival.ca/programs/short-film-competition/For inspiration, we invite you to check out our Youth Media Project, an initiative developed to inspire youth to tell their own stories. Featuring 9 filmmakers, the project is a video series with short films, “how-to” talks with filmmakers, and instructional tips that you may want to try yourself. With the ongoing impact of COVID-19, many are struggling with having to be physically apart from friends, peers, and support systems found through activities outside of the home. So many things have changed this past year, we offer the idea of producing a film as an outlet for self-expression. What story do you have to tell? Unleash your creativity! LINK TO VIDEOS AND INFORMATION: barriefilmfestival.ca/youth-media-project/ The Youth Virtual Media Arts Program is a project of the Barrie Film Festival and supported by the Government of Canada’s Emergency Community Support Fund and Barrie Community Foundation, with additional outreach support from the City of Barrie and Digital Giants.
