Calling All Filmmakers!

CBC Television is pleased to announce another season of Short Film Face Off, Canada’s only television magazine program that features short films from across the country. Now in its seventh season, the critically acclaimed show has helped bring a mainstream audience for short films in Canada and increased the profile of its featured filmmakers. The CBC is looking for the best short films from every region to take part in this program.

In Short Film Face Off, films are screened for a panel of industry professionals who provide commentary and discuss the creative and technical aspects of the films with the filmmakers. The series has a competitive component. The studio panel will choose three finalists and the television viewing audience will ultimately vote for the top film. The CBC and sponsors offer a prize made up of cash and production services to be used by the winning filmmaker towards his or her next short film. That film will be licensed for broadcast by the CBC.   

Films must be under 12 minutes in length, must have been completed in the past two years, and must not have been broadcast on network television. We are looking for comedies and dramas. Music videos and documentaries are not suitable for this program. Directors must be available for tapings at CBC Halifax from June 17 to June 20. The program producers will pay all travel and accommodation costs.

 If you are interested in entering your film in Short Film Face Off, please send the submission form (available at and a link (preferred) or a DVD or USB Flash Drive copy of your film to:
