Running from May 6 to 16, the festival will feature 49 films, dozens of shorts, and live Q&As, as well as industry events. Different from the previous years though, you will have a the options of watching from your own home—or your car.


New Viewing Experience

For the first-time ever, there is a special 3-day drive-in element to the film festival this year.

Between May 13 to 15 you can view some films, from your car, at the PNE Amphitheatre. Tickets are limited and will cost $50 per car, so move fast.

Virtual tickets can also be purchased for those who are unable to attend with their cars. The films will be available to stream for the duration of the online festival, but tickets are limited.

Some things to keep in mind for the drive-in portion:

  • 7 film screenings available
  • tickets are available now
  • limit of 6 passengers per car
  • $50 per car per film

This will be accessible to view Canada-wide via DOXA’s website.
