What is the Orillia Film Festival anyway?

The Orillia Film Festival invites film-makers from Orillia and around the world to submit short 8 minute movies to a panel, with the best movies receiving prizes and cash awards and a selection of short-listed movies getting public presentation in Orillia. September 25 will be a gala showing of the best local films, while the best films from Orillia and around the world will be shown on September 26.  The beautiful and historic Opera House is the venue for both of the presentation nights.  The goal of the venture is to develop another facet to Orillia’s growing arts scene and to encourage film-makers to put their talents to work by offering up the best creations in a community building event in downtown Orillia! ​

Why take on sponsorship or place an advertisement with the Orillia Film Festival program and website?

The festival has a broad appeal, as other festivals like this have had a wide range of diverse submissions and attendance. Last year we showed over 30 films from all over the world and over 500 attendees at the two show nights.  Our facebook page has over 700 likes and our twitter feed has over 350 followers.  People like our festival!  Your support will be displayed on our website www.orilliafilmfestival.com and in our professionally produced program. Our gratitude to you will serve as a tangible demonstration of your support of the arts in our community.
