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!
