The Kingston Canadian Film Festival is the largest festival in the world dedicated exclusively to Canadian film.

Founded in 2001, KCFF is a charitable cultural organization that provides access to Canadian film in a dynamic festival setting. Transforming traditional and unconventional venues across Kingston’s historic downtown, KCFF is an annual whirlwind of movies and special events that spark curiosity, ignite discussion and provide a fresh experience of Canadian film.

Each Festival, long-time festival goers and first-time enthusiasts can explore screenings, Q+As, parties, workshops, networking events, live music, stand-up comedy, and exhibitions.  With previous appearances from folks like Gerry Dee, Cathy Jones, Bif Naked, Gordon Pinsent, plus cast from shows like Baroness Von Sketch, Letterkenny, Mr. D, Trailer Park Boys, Kids in the Hall, and This Hour Has 22 Minutes, there are a few familiar faces along the way, too!

The 2024 Kingston Canadian Film Festival will take place February 28 to March 3, in downtown Kingston, Ontario. The lineup will be announced early in 2024. Save the dates!

As a charitable cultural organization, our mission is to provide access to Canadian film in a dynamic festival setting. 

KCFF presents screenings, events and activities that provide a fresh experience of Canadian film that, in turn, creates an audience that supports and encourages the ongoing development and appreciation of our national cinema and its creators.

We also accomplish our mission by:

  • researching, programming and exhibiting Canadian feature-length and short films that reflect a range of perspectives, voices and identities
  • creating a dialogue between filmmakers and the public to foster an appreciation and understanding of Canadian film and storytelling
  • providing professional development opportunities to filmmakers and new generation artists, as well as arts education opportunities for participants from many backgrounds
  • presenting locally-produced films and nurturing local film production
