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 a 150 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 and select Drive-in screenings. See our Virtual Cinema program where we are teaming up with film distributors to bring the theatrical experience to your home.

More announcements will be coming, so check back soon!

Taking a moment to give thanks to the great volunteers we have ❤️

We say it ALL the time but it is SO true! So many have been reaching out to ask about our plans for this year's festival, have been sending us DMs and emails of encouragement, sharing and commenting on our posts and telling us they miss us! We miss them too! Good people who love film - the best!

This moment comes from the Uptown Theatre box office during BFF12 in 2009. Carole is still with us! You may just see her smiling, safely from behind her mask, at this year's Short Film Competition on Saturday Oct 3 at Sunset Barrie Drive-in!

The 23rd Barrie Film Festival runs Oct 1-4, 2020 at the Sunset Barrie Drive-in. ⁠Announcements and Ticket Release coming soon!

REPOST from instagram, @jenniferpodemski / @shinenetworkinc logo reveal!

I’m excited to announce who we are and our mission to shine a spotlight on Indigenous women content creators and build a more equitable, inclusive and diverse Canadian media landscape

#Indigenous women's voices and perspectives need to be heard.

Our mission is to provide Indigenous women content creators with the resources and tools needed to thrive in the screen-based media sector.

Tomorrow we will reveal who we are and our mission to champion Indigenous women content creators and media makers. The Canadian media landscape is desperate for Indigenous women's voices and perspectives. We want to see Indigenous women SHINE on screen, behind the camera and in all areas of film, tv and media creation, execution and exhibition.
