Donate to KCFF

For 16 years KCFF has been dedicated to exhibiting Canadian films and is deeply committed to ensuring its continued development and growth. We believe that Canadian film needs to be seen by Canadian audiences, not just in the larger cities but in smaller communities. KCFF has always been a non-profit organization, but is now a registered charity.

We’ve always been incredibly grateful for the generosity of our audiences, patrons, and sponsors and are thrilled to be able to now issue tax-deductible charitable receipts for donations to the festival.

As a donor you support our festival programming, including our feature film and shorts screenings, plus our ‘Local Shorts’ and brand new ‘Youth Shorts’ programs. KCFF fosters the development of professional and amateur artists of all ages and backgrounds. Our showcase opportunities assist emerging filmmakers as they launch into professional careers representing Canada on international circuits. Donations allow us to continue to develop our festival workshops, career and networking events, Q+As and signature events for festival audiences to deepen their understanding and increase their appreciation of Canadian cinema. Our outreach programs provide film workshops and education to underserved communities around the area.

Guest Artist PatronDavies2

Every year the KCFF welcomes filmmakers, cast, and crew from across the country to participate in our festival programming including talks, workshops, and master classes. We’re offering top-tier donors (donations over $500) the opportunity to support these artists by donating towards their journey and their time in Kingston. Each year we will pair a visiting artist with a local donor.

In addition to the perks listed above, as a visiting artist donor you’ll receive guaranteed seating for your visiting artist’s screening at the festival and the opportunity to meet the artist after the event.

We only have a limited number of filmmakers to pair with our donors and while we’ll endeavour to match any interested donor with a visiting artist, it is subject to availability.

Donating to the KCFF is as easy as lights, camera, action:

  • Print off this form and return it to us with a cheque or your credit card information
  • Mail to: Kingston Canadian Film Festival / Main PO Box 70 / Kingston, ON / K7L 4V6
  • If this option does not suit you, give us a call and we’ll process your donation with a credit card over the phone
