We pride ourselves on discovering and promoting all forms of international and independent thrilling genre cinema including horror, sci-fi, fantasy, animation, crime, action, suspense, thriller, documentary, music videos, and cult/bizarre films, both in short form and feature-length.

This year Toronto After Dark runs for nine nights, October 15-23, 2015, and will screen almost 50 films, including both shorts and features. Our Festival is uniquely run by film fans for film fans and enjoys incredible loyalty and support from the large film-appreciating community in Toronto. Last year Toronto After Dark was attended by over 11,000 enthusiastic genre film fans and over 200 members of the film press and industry.
