The mission of the Orillia Film Festival is to encourage the art of storytelling through film. It is our hope that the festival will develop another facet to Orillia’s growing arts scene by inspiring local and international film-makers to put their talents to work by offering up the best creations in a community building event in downtown Orillia!

Film-makers from Orillia and around the world submit short 8 minute movies to a panel, with the best movies receiving prizes and cash awards with a local night on October 3 and a selection of short-listed movies receiving public presentation at the historic Orillia Opera House on October 4. The goal of the venture is to develop another facet to Orillia’s growing arts scene and to encourage film-makers to put their talents to work by offering up the best creations in a community building event in downtown Orillia!

The First Annual Orillia Film Festival will be held October 3 and 4, 2014, with the presentation night to be held on October 4 at the Orillia Opera House.
