Our team


The Blood in the Snow Canadian Film Festival is a unique and imaginative showcase of contemporary Canadian horror, genre, and underground cinema, that exists to challenge social boundaries, explore artistic taboos, and support and exhibit independent Canadian genre media artists.


Our mandate to support, promote, and exhibit Canadian horror, genre, and underground film productions is best served by an annual film festival in Toronto Ontario that will bring together the strongest concentration of audiences, media profile and coverage, community partnerships, and members of the media arts community and filmmaking industry to exhibit and celebrate Canadian genre media artists.
