2008 Festival

About Us

“Amazing! Unlike any other film festival in the city”
– Barrett Hooper, NOW Magazine

Toronto After Dark Film Festival is one of the world’s leading showcases of thrilling international cinema and runs every October, just before Halloween.  The critically acclaimed festival features new horror, sci-fi, fantasy, action, animated and cult films from around the world, including a number of award-winning features and shorts. Last year, the festival was attended by over 6,500 enthusiastic film fans and over 100 members of press and industry. In a poll of local filmgoers, Toronto After Dark was also voted Runner-Up for Best Film Festival in the City. This year’s much-anticipated third annual event expands to eight thrilling nights, October 17-24, 2008.


As a film festival we know that images often speak louder than words. Accordingly, if you are unfamiliar with our event, please check out our short slideshow featuring some of the most memorable moments of last year’s Toronto After Dark Film Festival on this page here.


Alongside its massive leap in attendance, Toronto After Dark Film Festival also broke records for its outstanding media coverage last year. The festival was featured in more than 100 media outlets across Television, Print, Radio and the Web including Ain’t It Cool News, Bloody-Disgusting, CHUD, CityTV, Exclaim, Fangoria, Filmmaker Magazine, The Globe and Mail, Inside Entertainment, Joblo.com, MTV, NOW, Rue Morgue Magazine, Showcase, Toronto Star, Twitch and dozens more. The SPACE Channel aired an excellent 3-minute featurette on last year’s festival, which you can watch by clicking on the image below:

If you’ve missed our fest in the past, here’s a one minute preview trailer from last year’s event, which also gives you a good taste of what Toronto After Dark Film Festival is all about:


Toronto After Dark Film Festival theatrically showcases innovative, independent, international and Canadian thrilling films in front of local audiences that would otherwise never get to see these works on the Big Screen.


Toronto After Dark also brings thousands of film fans together during the festival to meet up outside of our screenings.  We host packed nightly social events including two gala parties, pub nights, and a wildly popular zombie walk through the downtown of the city!


While the Zombie Walk is an all ages event, we regret that Festival Screenings are Restricted by Ontario Provincial Law to Adults Aged 18 Years And Older. Festival parties and pub nights restricted to 19+.

Your Passport to Thrills!

Whether you are a filmmaker or a film fan, we hope you can join us at Toronto After Dark Film Festival this October 17-24, 2008 for Eight Nights of Cinematic Mayhem.  See You After Dark!
