For nearly 18 years now Ryerson University Film Festival has showcased thesis films of up and coming filmmakers from Ryerson's School of Image Arts. This annual student-run festival promotes the work of the talented fourth year students and gives them a chance to network and screen their work in a public and professional setting. Ruff importantly offers a chance for students, filmmakers, faculty and staff to celebrate their efforts and achievements while sharing it with their peers as well as the public.
This year for the first time ever we are hosting the festival at Ryerson Theatre, which is also known to screen a wide range of films during the Toronto International Film Festival. It is this festival’s biggest undertaking yet but as our slogan, “Where it All Comes Together” suggests, our goal this year is to bring the festival home and to create a real sense of community and engagement around it. We look forward to seeing you on May 1st and 2nd for the premiere of our 23 short films.
