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 January 2019 FEMALE Directors Feedback Film Festival in Toronto was “Odd One Out”.

Each film was about someone or something being left out of the masses!

A great start to the Toronto festivals in 2019. The first of over 30 festival events.

We ended 2018 with a showcase of the best of Female Directed films from all over the world. And we began the 2019 season with the same.

2018 was definitely the year of Female Directors and Writers at the FEEDBACK Festival Events. From 2013 to 2017 only 15% of films we showcased at the festival were directed by women. In 2018, we showcased 314 films at our festival and 144 were directed by women. Which equals to 46% films directed by a woman. So that’s a gigantic increase – but generally we should always be at around 50% without it being a story. Let’s hope that in 5 years or less this will be the case.

See you at the festivals.
