3rd Annual Charlottetown Film Festival

The 3rd Annual Charlottetown Film Festival will take place from September 29th to October 1st at City Cinema. 

Devoted to celebrating and showcasing the works of emerging Atlantic filmmakers – with a special focus on Island screen artists – our ‘little film festival of big dreams’ has accomplished so much since its inception in 2015 under the umbrella of The Charlottetown Film Society.


Amazingly, close to one hundred films have been screened –  a banquet of feature films, documentaries, short dramas and comedies, animation, music videos. Something for everyone.  And all share the important task of telling OUR stories to each other and the entire world, thanks to the efforts and big dreams of the determined regional filmmakers we spotlight.

An important function of any film festival is the opportunity it provides for networking and skills development. Friendly, accessible receptions and informing panels are a hallmark of the Charlottetown Film Festival and we are committed to continuing on this path – providing a stimulating environment for film buffs and filmmakers as we work together to develop screen-based storytelling here in Atlantic Canada.
