After three successful years, the Hollywood North Film Festival enters its fourth season of presenting world-class films in the Bay of Quinte Region. As a non-profit organization, we're looking to grow and bring the festival to new audiences in our region for 2019. You can be a part one of the region's premier events by volunteering.
IT BEGAN WITH
The Hollywood North Film Festival began as an idea in 2012 by local filmmaker Jacob Cote. Knowing that in the early 1900’s Trenton ON, was in fact, Canada’s original “Hollywood North” the idea for a festival began.
Having grown up in the Bay of Quinte Region (encompassing Quinte West, Belleville & Prince Edward County) he knew the region was home to many former and current media/film professionals and students; the idea was to celebrate what was once film studio-central for Canada.
Today, the region boasts state-of-the-art theatre facilities and a flourishing arts and film community. Local businesses, restaurants, and tourist attractions will thrive on the yearly festival with filmmakers from across the province and the world attending.
It’s only the beginning of what we hope to be a positive initiative for each community and the region as a whole. See you at the cinema!
