Charlottetown Film Fest

Gathering cinema-lovers, filmmakers and industry partners

The ninth annual Charlottetown Film Festival will run from October 13–15 at City Cinema in downtown Charlottetown. 

The 2023 Festival promises to feature something for everyone from cinema-lovers to filmmakers and industry partners. 

The engaging lineup includes PEI premieres of the Christian Sparkes film Sweetland and the critically acclaimed documentary Swan Song, new short films from Island filmmakers Millefiore Clarkes (Evelyn), Logan Fulford (Sea Salt), and Justin O’Hanley (Currie). 

Festival-goers will experience a variety of local, national and international movies that celebrate and challenge what it means to be human.

Alongside the Festival, organizers will introduce the first ever Charlottetown Film Forum—an industry event catered toward filmmakers and industry delegates. The forum will feature artist panels, one-on-one industry meetings, networking mixers and community celebrations. 

Tickets go on sale October 1.
