Scarborough Arts Presents the 4th Annual Scarborough Worldwide Film Festival

Posted on May 6th, by scararts in Featured, Recent News. 2 comments

We are pleased to announce that this year, Scarborough Arts is presenting the 4th Annual Scarborough Worldwide Film Festival (ScarFF)!

ScarFF will light up various locations in Scarborough on June 2 to 11, 2016, and will feature local and international films, short film and documentary programs, industry meetings, educational events, as well as parties and awards nights. Dubbed by Toronto Star as one of “GTA’s most promising new fests,” ScarFF aims to bridge the different communities in Scarborough and to bridge the gap between Scarborough and the rest of Toronto through a celebration of the arts.

This year’s ScarFF also comes together with the 6th Annual Bridging Festival, our annual arts, cultural, and environmental festival, scheduled for June 3 and 4, 2016. Previously held under the Lawrence Avenue East Bridge at the Kingston-Galloway/Orton Park neighbourhood, the multi-arts festival moves to the centrally-located Albert Campbell Square on 150 Borough Drive and showcases Scarborough’s best performers in music, comedy, spoken word, and theatre. Dedicated to bridging communities and art forms, the festival includes environmental and family-friendly arts activities and a film screening.

We will announce the full line-up of films, events, and special guests on May 17, 2016—keep an eye on our website!
