WHERE GEMS ARE FOUND
The Crystalline Film Festival is a new international film festival based out of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Though our first festival is focusing primarily on short films, we have plans to welcome feature film submissions in the near future.
Our mission is to showcase and celebrate the energy, focus, and grit that goes into completing independent short films. The Crystalline Film Festival is an immersive platform designed by filmmakers for filmmakers, embracing diversity and committed to creating opportunities for other members of the artistic community.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Crystalline Film Festival is currently being hosted on a virtual platform, but we eagerly anticipate when we are able to have live screenings and red carpet events for our festival-goers.
Diamonds are one of the hardest materials on the earth, and are only created after a lot of time and immense pressure; the conditions must be perfect. Much like these beautiful gems, truly great film is created from a lot of hard work, determination, and often countless setbacks. This challenging industry is not for the faint of heart but, for the creators who choose to pursue it, the art is well worth the struggle.
