The Kingston Canadian Film Festival (KCFF) unveiled their full 2023 lineup on Thursday evening. For its 23rd edition, the Festival is delighted to be back in full swing for an entirely in-person festival running in downtown Kingston from March 2-5, 2023.

KCFF is the largest all-Canadian film festival, delivering a whirlwind of movies and special events that spark curiosity and ignite discussion. Each Festival, long-time festival goers and first-time enthusiasts can explore screenings, Q+As, parties, networking events, live music, and more!

This year audiences can expect a robust program of features, including TIFF top 10 picks BLACK ICE, BROTHER, I LIKE MOVIES, TO KILL A TIGER, ROSIE, VIKING, KCFF opening night film RICEBOY SLEEPS, and nearly 30 others. A healthy dose of shorts programs is also on offer, including dedicated categories for local and youth filmmakers, plus a spotlight on the work of filmmaker Mike Downie, which will include an extended Q&A between Downie and Elamin Abdelmahmoud.

KCFF23 is undertaking a new venture this year as they expand into the Grand Theatre for three special events. Each screening features a film or program shot in Kingston. The line-up includes the much anticipated DEN MOTHER CRIMSON  (Branded to Film Productions), the Bicycle Opera Company’s SWEAT – an opera filmed in Kingston’s Inner Harbour, and the SLAIGHT MUSIC VIDEO SHOWCASE, which premieres videos from the 11 local production companies and bands who were selected as part of the Slaight Music Video Initiative.
