Our independent filmmakers, musicians and VR creators have hustled hard to bring their visions
to life and now they’re ready for a new wave! Explore carefully selected stories,
sounds and experiences as we give our community the celebration they deserve.

 

 Check out our 3 segments below:

Short films

 
 
 

Dive into a kaleidoscope of thought provoking, funny and heartwarming stories brought to life by sleepless nights from Toronto's  underground filmmakers, actors and sound-makers.

Our film section is our most impressive, showcasing 10 shorts from the Greater Toronto Area demonstrating the culture, diversity and important stories Toronto has to offer. This selection was scouted from the dark depths of the internet and film world, placing raw talent and merit over prestige. Some films have been in Sundance and SXSW.

 
 
 
 

Live Music

 
 
 
 

Dance the night away with our artists, and get those creative juices flowing! We've got mellow, we've got upbeat, we've got a sound for every wavelength.

Our live music portion features 5 underground artists from the Greater Toronto Area that will play after the films & award ceremony. They'll pour their souls out until the end of the night, creating an atmosphere for all to mix and mingle.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Virtual Reality

 

If you think this looks cool now, wait until you experience it in 360.

 
 

Time for a paradigm shift and to see with new eyes! Get into a criminal's head and experience perspectives you would never otherwise know.
Our VR segment consists of a VR cinema curated by Contraverse, a 360 video projection dome sponsored by Igloo Vision, and an interactive VR play-pin brought in through 4 HTC Vive stations with VRPlayin
