The Future of Film Showcase is a Canadian not-for-profit media arts organization operating as an annual film festival, presenting short films from Canadian Filmmakers aged 40 and younger. FOFS has a track record of screening shorts from dignified Canadian filmmakers such as Deragh Campbell (MS Slavic 7, Anne at 13,000 ft), Alicia K. Harris (PICK, 2020 Canadian Screen Award Winner) and Sophy Romvari (Norman Norman, Still Processing), landing their shorts on larger exhibition platforms such as CBC Gem.
A selection of FOFS 2020 and previous years' shorts are available to watch on CBC Gem.
Please note that all film files, including our Filmmaker Q&A, are available with English closed captioning which can be turned on manually while watching. If you have concerns about our accessibility or would like to suggest other accommodations, please email email@example.com.
Future of Film Showcase would like to acknowledge the land on which we gather and organize is the territory of the Anishinaabe, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee, the Huron-Wendat, and the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. Today, the meeting place of Toronto is home to many Indigenous peoples. A territorial acknowledgement can demonstrate a coming to awareness, and provoke thought and reflection, all of which are essential in beginning to establish reciprocal relations. This acknowledgement should not function as closure, resignation, or acceptance of the structural conditions of settler colonialism that remain in effect today. The Future of Film Showcase will continue to ask what it means for us to keep open a spirit of sustained inquiry into the complexities of our context.
