We’ve streamlined our submission categories into Features (films 30+ minutes) and Shorts (films under 30 minutes including those created by filmmakers 17 and under, as well as local filmmakers). As a Canadian film festival, we will only consider submissions of Canadian films by Canadian filmmakers. You can read the full eligibility criteria below and email us if you have questions.
Are you a Kingston-based filmmaker? We’ll waive both the features and shorts submission fees for local filmmakers currently living in the Limestone City.
We also hand out a few awards at our Closing Night Awards Ceremony and some include cash, prizes, and all come with bragging rights for an entire year. You can explore the list of awards and you can take a look at previous KCFF winners here.
