New Season, New Celebrations: FCFF '18 Launch Party

It will be another season of firsts at FCFF in 2018 as we bring to you the best and brightest of short and feature films, animations and documentaries with connections to Southwestern Ontario and we want you to be among the first to see the lineup for our third year.

The festival will, for the first time, showcase an International Screening (sneak peek here) as well as a "Flashback Friday" event where we will screen a movie from past decades and a Q&A with the regional connection to the famous film. A glamourous evening that proudly highlights Southwestern Ontario’s connections to Hollywood, our Flashback Friday screening and Special Guest Q&A are a definite Don’t Miss!     

Our favourite programs from past years are back too! This year we have a stellar lineup of powerful, independent films telling stories with global themes through a local lense: 3 features and 5 feature documentaries in competition, 8 feature films out of competition, and a whopping 30 short films. In all, 46 films will be screened this year and we are chomping at the bit to tell you about them.

In addition to the films, the festival  weekend includes:

  • Gala events like the Lerner’s Opening Night party and the TD Awards Celebration

  • Conversations with filmmakers at the Q&A after each screening and Labatt’s Filmmaker Lounge

  • In-depth Industry Sessions where you learn about many aspects of  filmmaking from experts in the field and rub elbows with emerging filmmakers and industry insiders.


Can’t wait until October for the party? We have good news for you! Our exciting lineup will be announced August 23rd, 4 pm to 6 pm at Joe Kool’s on Richmond St. in London.  This event is for anyone who is a subscriber on the FCFF website.
