Newmarket International Film Festival supports independent cinema and filmmakers from around the world in the monthly and annual session.

The festival is established by a team of professional filmmakers, critics and distributors from Canada and US. The monthly competition does not screen films publicly and the selected films are forwarded to members of Jury at NIFF who will select the winners in each category. 

Our festival is dedicated to supporting international filmmakers, 

Our head office is located in Newmarket, in north of Toronto where many stars such as Jim Carrey were born.
