Macedonian Film Festival, October 13, 14, Toronto

Macedonian Film Festival

Last year the first Macedonian Film Festival was held in Toronto. It was the first and only one of its kind in North America. Films by Macedonian directors were enthusiastically received by the Canadian audiences.

This year we are proud to present our second annual film festival on October 13 and 14, 2007. Once again, we will be screening a variety of films of various genres including classic Macedonian films, contemporary features and documentaries. All films will be in English or have English subtitles.


The purpose and goal of the Macedonian Film Festival is to broaden the awareness of all Canadians to Macedonian talent and culture as well as focus attention on contemporary and historical issues facing the Macedonian Diaspora.

The Macedonian Film Festival is the primary venue in Canada for presenting films by Macedonian directors, writers and producers from around the world. The Macedonian Film Festival is an event like no other in North America, bringing together Macedonians and the Canadian community to be enlightened, educated and entertained by what Macedonia has to offer on the socio-cultural global landscape.

The Festival also features films with a Macedonian theme by filmmakers, regardless of their ethnic background. We want to create and encourage dialogue, reflect the Macedonian conscience and complex identity as well as promote our unique Macedonian culture.
