Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, after much consultation and careful deliberation, Toronto After Dark Film Festival has made the difficult decision to postpone their 15th Edition by one year, to October 14-22, 2021.
COMMITTED TO THE BIG SCREEN EXPERIENCE
Rest assured, Toronto After Dark remains committed to showcasing thrilling new horror, sci-fi, and action movies, with all the excitement that the shared big-screen theatrical experience brings to their wonderful fans and filmmakers!
However, they also recognize the unique challenge facing everyone in 2020. The ongoing pandemic continues to cast the shadow of uncertainty in Toronto over hosting large publicly attended events, such as Toronto After Dark which typically draws over 10,000 fans each year to packed cinema screenings in the city centre.
RETURNING WITH AN EXTRA SPECIAL EDITION!
This one-year postponement better positions Toronto After Dark to return with a much more enjoyable, relaxed, and above all, safe environment for everyone involved in our theatrical event.
So mark down their new dates, October 14-22, 2021, and prepare to join them for an extra celebratory 15th Edition of our annual thrilling film event!
