Save The Dates For #GRFF2022

Thank you again for a fabulous 14th Festival!
We’ll be back soon with programming announcements

Welcome To The Grand River Film Festival

Celebrating and inspiring community through the shared experience of film, the Grand River Film Festival (GRFF) hosts both an annual festival and year-round film programs dedicated to bringing bold, reflective and inspiring films to Waterloo Region (Cambridge, Kitchener, Waterloo).

The festival hosts local, Canadian, and international films, pairing screenings with panels consisting of directors, film professionals, local interest groups and notable guest speakers. GRFF recognizes the power of film to connect people and is thrilled to act as a vehicle for the community to build relationships and host meaningful conversations within the Waterloo Region.

Sponsorship Opportunities

Our Festival would not be possible without the generous support of our Sponsors.

At more than any time in GRFF’s existence, the isolation required to survive the COVID-19 crisis makes more necessary our core mission of fostering communities through the shared experience of film.

We are calling on businesses and business owners especially those in the Kitchener, Waterloo & Cambridge areas to join us in realizing that mission with an all new digital film festival in May and all year programming. GRFF has a customizable sponsorship package as well as unique offerings designed to connect you and our community in unforgettable ways all through 2021.
