November 2023

Canadian Sport Film Festival

CSFF 2023

The Canadian Sport Film Festival (CSFF) brings together the theatre of sport and the medium of film to tell unique, provocative, and passionate human stories from around the world. We envision a global community that embraces sport for all.

The 15th annual Canadian Sport Film Festival will take place November 17-18, 2023 in person at TIFF Bell Lightbox in Toronto, Canada. CSFF digital programs will also be available across Canada via digital TIFF Bell Lightbox from November 17-23, 2023.

The Canadian Sport Film Festival has a mission to provoke dialogue on the power of sport to inspire social change.

The Festival encourages submissions of Canadian and international films about sport that are not typically screened or widely available. We want to share the stories beyond the scoreboard, behind the camera and told with a critical lens.

Submissions for CSFF 2023 closed on May 1. Thank you for submitting your sport films.

"Two things are important to us at CSFF:
that we screen the best films submitted to us each year,
and that these films provoke dialogue about the role that sport plays in revealing important social issues."

CSFF Founder & Executive Director
