The Kingston Canadian Film Festival is an annual four-day celebration of Canadian cinema and the largest festival in the world dedicated exclusively to Canadian film.
We bring the best Canadian feature films of the year to a number of traditional and unconventional venues in downtown Kingston. We also present four short film programs (including films by local artists and young filmmakers under 17) and schedule free workshops, welcome over 60 industry guests, and keep the celebration going all weekend from our opening night reception to our closing night awards reception with special events, music, comedy, and awards.
We welcome audiences to explore a range of film programming with genres, stories, and perspectives as diverse as the artists who create them. We present films in many languages, including both official languages, and provide access for local audiences and visitors to Kingston to see this work. KCFF is not your average night at the movies: our festival activities like post-screening Q+As with visiting filmmakers and special guests, free workshops, parties, and special events all ladder up to create a vibrant and lively festival experience.
