Guelph Film Festival

Friday, November 3 – Saturday, November 11, 2023 | Free Under-30, Pay What You Want | Locations vary per film

This year we are focusing all of our creative energy on doing live, in-person events better than ever—bigger, louder, quirkier, more playful, and more deeply thought provoking. We are curating events, sparked by the themes of our documentary films, to ignite conversations about our world and relationships. The festival will be lighting up screens across downtown Guelph (and beyond!) to showcase artful nonfiction films that explore the themes of social justice, the environment, and community building. But that doesn’t mean it always needs to be intense. Joy can be a radical act. Sharing stories that matter is at the heart of what we do. And you never know which story will change you or the world.

Opening night will explore love and music with July Talk: Love Lives Here, while closing night will showcase the glittery excellence of Black Barbie. This year’s festival focuses on influential acts of agency and celebration, following your dreams and dancing your dance, while taking moments to get deep, make a difference, and reflect.
