Why Cinemuskoka?

We love movies, and if you are reading this, you do too!


Our vision is to foster the next generation of talented filmmakers..

We like to say we are discovering the filmmakers of tomorrow, today!




To the filmmakers:  We aim to be the go to festival for up-and-coming filmmakers.  We do this by offering engaged audiences in the beautiful setting of Huntsville; by offering a night of free accommodations; by throwing exciting parties, networking functions and filmmaker talkbacks; and by hosting special guests to bring valuable exposure to your work.  Most importantly, we provide awards for great work in all categories: feature, doc, short, music video, and webseries/online content.  Each year we grow the prestige of our awards and attach valuable prizes.  Stay tuned for this year’s announcements.  We close out each year’s activity when we host a Cinemuskoka filmmaker party at TIFF in Toronto one week after our festival closes.

To the audience:  We offer a diverse curation of the best work of our

up-and-coming artists, as well as opportunities to meet and greet the filmmakers and actors.  At Cinemuskoka everyone is a VIP.  When you buy a ticket, you walk the red carpet with our filmmakers.  We invite you to enjoy the films, come to the parties, ask questions at our Q&A gatherings and share in the excitement for our outstanding talent at the Award Ceremonies.  Each year we strive to have free events as well.  In 2017 we held free screenings nightly in River Mill Park on a giant 40-foot inflatable screen.  Stay tuned for this year’s line-up of exciting events.

Up-to-date info can always be found on our Facebook page, or by following us on Instagram and Twitter.  If you have any questions or comments, please contact us – .
