Born out of the Staircase Theatre, nurtured by filmmakers, made for filmmakers, we aim to earn the “HAMILTON” in our title. The Hamilton Film Festival has become a very bright light in the ever-growing arts and culture scene in this city. The 9th annual Hamilton Film Festival was the events biggest festival to date. What started as a grassroots local festival in the 67-seat Staircase Theatre has blossomed into an internationally recognized event. To date, the Hamilton Film Festival has not receive any grants or loans and is supported through volunteers, sponsorship, in-kind sponsorship, advertising and ticket sales. During the 7 day event we were proud to screen films that represented a wide variety of people, cultures and communities including Female filmmakers, LGBT, Jewish, Polish, Aboriginal, Muslim, Francophone, Films made by youth, Asian, Sri-Lankan, Hispanic, European, Australian, South American, people with mental disorders as well as working with local groups like Pathways to Education, local film clubs, organizations and festivals to make the Hamilton Film Festival one of the most diverse and inclusive film festivals in the GTHA. The Hamilton Film Festival is a submission / selection juried event and many of the films had not yet gained a reputation or following. Many of our films are local, national or world premiers. While marketing “unknown” films proves to be a challenge, it is a challenge we meet head on as we continue to introduce Hamilton to some of the best films you’ve never heard of. Our BEST SHORT winner this year, DEAD HEARTS, is eligibly to apply for an Academy Award nomination while our BEST DOC winner, DAVIDS and GOLIATH, recently won a 50,000 prize for1st place in the world’s largest online film festival. Our programming is world class and on par with several larger film festivals, we’ve been told. As we enter our 10th year, we will stick with the plan and let things grow as they grow and follow the simple mandate of bringing great films to the city and earning the “Hamilton” in our title. http://www.hamiltonfilmfestival.com http://www.twitter.com/HamiltonFilm @HamiltonFilm #HamFilmFest
