The AGH Film Festival is Hamilton’s largest showcase of cinema and has grown to become one of the largest film festivals in Ontario. Hosting 10,000 attendees annually, the AGH Film Festival showcases the best narrative and documentary feature and short films from around the world. The festival has been operated by the Art Gallery of Hamilton since 1999 and screens in theatres across the city.
The festival’s mandate is to present critical and innovative cinema to our community and provide a high profile platform to emerging voices, social issues and communities. It is also our mandate to support artists by paying minimum IMAA screening fees to all films that screen as part of our festival.
For more information about the submission process or about the Festival in general, please feel free to contact our team at email@example.com
Successful applicants will be notified in late August of 2019.
The Art Gallery of Hamilton invites youth ages 13 to 18 who reside in the City of Hamilton (including municipalities of Ancaster, Dundas, Flamborough, Glanbrook, and Stoney Creek) to participate in the “AGH Youth Film Challenge”. This is an opportunity for youth to create a short film and have it presented to the public during the 11th annual AGH Film Festival in October 2019. All films selected will be paid a screening fee and one student will be chosen to receive the audience choice award for their standout film.
The 2019 Film Festival takes place from October 17 to 27, 2019. Sign up to our Film Program email list to receive news and invitations.
