Each year we welcome new and returning audiences to Kingston to see some of the best Canadian cinema of the year. Our festival is like our city: warm, down-to-earth, and approachable. The majority of our venues are in Kingston’s historic downtown and within walking distance or close proximity to one another. Along the way you’ll find a range of incredible restaurants, cafes and pubs from fine dining to quick grab-and-get-back-to-the-festival fare. We hope that you’ll make the most of your visit to KCFF and enjoy everything our city has to offer… that is, in your downtime when you’re not watching movies, of course!
Despite news of the Province implementing new regulations on March 1, KCFF will continue with its plans to sell to a maximum 50% capacity, require proof of vaccination for entry, and make mask-wearing mandatory.

The temporary Ontario Staycation Tax Credit for 2022 aims to encourage Ontario families to explore the province, while helping the tourism and hospitality sectors recover. Ontario residents can claim 20% of their eligible 2022 accommodation expenses, for example, for a stay at a hotel, cottage or campground, when filing their personal Income Tax and Benefit Return for 2022. You can claim eligible expenses of up to $1,000 as an individual or $2,000 if you have a spouse, common-law partner or eligible children, to get back up to $200 as an individual or $400 as a family.
Our restaurant sponsors are, no coincidence, some of the best in the city. We are grateful for their support and hope that you’ll support them in turn!

The Screening Room has a great snack bar with popcorn, candy and other treats. We are licensed to sell liquor for the duration of the Festival with proceeds from sales supporting KCFF, so you can grab a bottle of Steam Whistle or a glass of wine to enjoy before (and during) the show!
For those of you on a Canadian movie marathon finding time for a sit-down meal can be a bit of a challenge. If you’re powering through and don’t plan to take a break for dinner or lunch, we’d recommend packing a sandwich or light-meal. Although outside food is not permitted in the theatres, there are lots of areas available in the lobbies of all venues where you can refuel in time for your next flick!
