11th annual Tofino Film Festival: Oct. 23-28

by Kimberly Johnstonton, Tofino

T The 11th annual Tofino Film Festival will take place from October 23rd to 26th. The festival will include a family matinee, a collection of shorts, a music documentary, environmental films, and some intriguing feature narratives. The schedule will be posted throughout Tofino by the second week of October. Tickets will be available at select locations in Tofino and Ucluelet and also available for sale at the door.

This year's film festival is a celebration of veteran directors and rookie film makers alike. We have local favourite Andrew Struthers closing our festival on Sunday night and for the first time ever we are featuring a Guerrilla Film Contest. The contest will kick off our festival on October 22nd at 9pm at Shelter Restaurant. The contest invites people from Tofino and Ucluelet to submit short films (from 3-5 min) for consideration. The films will be reviewed by the Guerilla Film Contest committee and shown on Wednesday evening. The night is aptly called, "Dinner and a Movie" featuring drink and food specials.
We are encouraging everyone to get out there and make a short film. You can submit films individually or as a team so feel free to partner up with coworkers and friends! The point of this contest is to get our communities involved in actual film making and raise some awareness about the art before the festival commences. Cell phones, hand held cameras, still cameras, Super 8's, the Canon gl2 -- they're all welcome to this contest. Remember we're looking for original content! Once you get your films down to dvd please drop them off at the Mermaid Tales Book Shop.

We are also pleased to announce the return of Shawn Robinson, art show coordinator from last year's festival, who will be facilitating a local vernissage. If you are an artist who would like to participate in this event please contact Shawn at: We're looking ahead to a very exciting and dynamic festival this year. Please join us in celebrating film in Tofino this fall.

There is online support for amateur film makers, editing advice, and a blog to share ideas:
