DRIFF’s 2023 fall festival returns for another year of amazing films, insightful workshops, expert panels for a closer look at the film industry, and much more.

WHITBY, ON – The Durham Region 
International Film Festival (DRIFF) returns to three different venues across the region from October 19 to 21. The festival will showcase a carefully curated line-up of film programming, including Durham Region and Canadian productions alongside international films. In addition to film screenings, DRIFF 2023 will offer workshops and panels for audiences and filmmakers to engage and learn more about the fascinating industry of film. 

During a time of high inflation and rising prices everywhere, DRIFF is thrilled to be able to offer affordable tickets for everyone to enjoy the art of film right in their very own community. Tickets for Day 1 and Day 2 are $10 each, while Day Three is $15. 

“Kirk Cooper, DRIFF’s Director of Programming, has assembled a wonderful variety of features and short films, from amusing to inspiring,” says Karen Burwell, DRIFF Chair. “In addition, we are delighted to be joined by the creators of each of our feature films, all eager to connect with film lovers. DRIFF has live films, virtual films, stimulating conversations, and great networking - all without that tiresome commute!”

A panel of independent judges will award cash prizes to four films in the following categories during the awards ceremony: Best Features, Best International Shorts, Best Student Film, Best Canadian Shorts, Best Doc, Best Animation Short, and Best Regional Film. The film winning the People’s Choice Award will be announced on driff.ca and on DRIFF’s social media platforms (@catchthedriff) following the completion of the virtual screenings on October 1 to 28.

Tickets and program information are available now at driff.ca.
