Newmarket International Film Festival supports independent cinema and filmmakers from around the world.

The festival is established by a team of professional filmmakers, critics and distributors from Canada and US. The award winning films will receive cash awards and exceptional consulting support and recommendations regarding their North American distribution deals through the sales agents and distributors connected to our festival.

Our festival is dedicated to supporting international filmmakers and we select films from around the world in four major sections to compete. 

Our festival intends to support independent filmmakers and therefore we award our filmmakers not just with certificates or trophies but with cash awards. Our head office is located in Newmarket, in north of Toronto where many stars such as Jim Carrey were born.
