Please send us an email at and let us know if you would like a waver. 

Waver priority is given to Canadian Film Makers,  Members of marginalized communities, and artists whom we already have  a working relationship with. 


We accept all kinds of media. If you have made it, we are interested in it. 

Is it curated?

Yes, we have a group of judges that help create the line up for every indie night. They are  a diverse group of industry professionals. We often announce who our jury members are, but only after submissions have closed. 

Why does it cost to submit now?

To help keep Toronto Indie Night Operational. With the expansion into a bigger venue, and the volume in which submissions are being sent to us, we felt it was time to make the switch.

We are still committed to our mandate to keep this festival affordable and accessible for all artists. We are able to offer several waver codes per showcase, so reach out to us at
Our Director, Shannon Would be happy to get to know you, your film and talk about a waver code.
