There is an episode about this festival in our archives as we talk about the audience and all the great films we showcased at this event.

The theme of the October 2018 DRAMA & ANIMATION FEEDBACK Film Festival in Toronto was “Survival”.

All films were about someone or something “surviving”.

A fun and exciting night. There was a great shift of tone from the first half to the 2nd half. And it worked without a hitch.

Another great sell out crowd making outstanding comments.

See you at the festivals.
