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.

We have our popular Screen One monthly film series at the Uptown Theatre the first Wednesday and Thursday of every month, where we showcase an international line up of cinematic gems. On the third Thursday of the month there is our Dinner & Movie program which provides the opportunity to enjoy a special menu at one of the participating restaurants and an independent film (film tickets and meals sold separately). The Reel Stories winter mini-festival will be returning downtown February 3 to 5, 2017 where we present the most current in documentary and fact-based films. During the summer months we offer free outdoor screenings on Barrie’s waterfront. From October 13 to 22, 2017 we will be hosting our 20th annual ten-day festival at venues throughout the City of Barrie. This autumn film festival includes over 40 screenings, a Short Film Competition, guest Q&As and receptions

With over a 150 public events and screenings per year, there are many opportunities to enjoy award-winning and festival favorites on the big screen. Come see what the wide world of cinema has to offer.

Starting tomorrow, and also running in April, we are pleased to be welcoming Simcoe County Secondary Schools to the Barrie Uptown Theatre for our annual Education Program.

Through our Education Program and other film screening opportunities, we aim to inspire young minds, exposing them to wider cultural horizons and creative possibilities.

In addition to presenting LE PETIT PRINCE and animated documentary TOWER, we are excited to be showing 2016 Canadian animated film WINDOW HORSES.

Rosie Ming, a young Canadian poet, is invited to perform at a Poetry Festival in Shiraz, Iran, but she'd rather be in Paris. She lives at home with her over-protective Chinese grandparents and has never been anywhere by herself. Once in Iran, she finds herself in the company of poets and Persians, all who tell her stories that force her to confront her past; the Iranian father she assumed abandoned her and the nature of Poetry itself.

"This is not just a visual treat, it's a rewarding and unexpectedly engrossing piece of female-led storytelling." - Wendy Ide, Screen International
