KCFF Cancelled

KCFF Cancelled

CANCELLATION NOTICE. An event that brings people together, the #KCFF20 has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation. While we recognize that there are no cases of COVID-19 in our community, out of caution KCFF has made the difficult decision to cancel the remainder.

The 2020 Kingston Canadian Film Festival is the globe’s largest all-Canadian film festival and returns for its 20th edition, from March 11-15!  The lineup includes some of the best Canadian films of the year, live music, comedy, workshops and receptions.

Festival Director, Marc Garniss says “Personally, I love that we have the world-premiere of music-doc Mouth Congress, co-directed by Scott Thompson of Kids in the Hall – it’s about his punk band that preceded Kids in the Hall stardom.  Ryan Noth’s Drifting Snow is making its world-premiere, as well!  Shot in Prince Edward County and starring Sonja Smits – it will be an audience favourite, I’m sure.  We’ll have approximately 100 special guests on behalf of films and other programs, folks like Andrea Bang (Kim’s Convenience), Kevin McDonald and Scott Thompson (Kids in the Hall), Canadian screen legends like Wendy Crewson and Jayne Eastwood, and tons more.”

March 11th kicks off with the critically acclaimed ANTIGONE and then festival-goers can binge-watch Canadian films for four days straight, including all the Best Picture nominees at the 2019 Canadian Screen Awards.
