Mission and Mandate


The Canadian Sport Film Festival is committed to:

Provoking dialogue on the power of sport to inspire social change.



The Canadian Sport Film Festival:

  • Showcases international films and filmmakers not typically screened or widely available.
  • Educates, informs, engages and entertains communities throughout Canada using powerful personal and political stories told on film through sport, many of which promote physical activity as a means to achieve long-lasting health benefits to both body and mind.
  • Provides a safe environment for critical analysis and discussion about stories and themes represented in CSFF films.
  • Engages youth using film and sport in innovative and collaborative workshops.
