Every night the screenings begin with a cultural performance as it is important for us to culturally locate what we do within our community by shaping our festival within our own culture. This is then followed with the screening of the films, an in-depth question and answer session with the filmmakers with the audience and lastly a networking reception with the filmmakers. Each year it grows! Our audience consists of community members, writers, media, students and other artists. All our events are free to the public.
The Emerging Lens film festival is on the Canadian Screen Awards list as eligible festivals! Submit your film for next year's line up today!!
