Check out the winners of Toronto Indie Shorts

Toronto Indie Shorts was established north of Toronto by a group of Canadian filmmakers and film critics from the York University of Toronto. All film projects of each edition are selected and judged only from the blind submissions and the committee tries to promote and provide the options for short filmmakers to compete without any commercial pressure from the film industry. Arthouse projects, indie films, writers, directors, producers, actors, cinematographers and composers of all genres are selected in various categories for the festival. The award winning short narrative of each edition can request online screening and further promotion through Toronto Film Channel and Toronto Film Magazine. It is our pleasure to announce the latest winners of Toronto Indie Shorts.
