Due to the fluid situation of COVID-19

the 2020 festival will be postponed.

This situation has affected everyone throughout the film and creative industries. We believe it would be irresponsible for crews to assemble, work long hours and put the health and safety of all involved at risk. It would also be irresponsible for us to ask large groups of patrons to gather in cinemas at this time.


Please abide by government rules and regulations.

Wash your hands, wear your mask, practice physical distancing, and watch some movies.

See you soon!


The Hollywood North Film Festival (HNFF) is a non-profit organization focused on bringing quality films, workshops & networking events to the Bay of Quinte Region. Via the annual festival, we hope to re-establish what was once in the 1920’s, a vibrant and flourishing filmmaking area. Today, we once again have a growing artistic community that we believe can be brought together through the presence of film.
