Toronto's YouTube Festival Is Looking For The Next Lilly Singh This October
Get your content ready!
Attention all filmmakers and content creators! Do you have a passion for the digital arts, or have you ever dreamed of being a YouTuber? Well, this is your chance to show off what you've got at this year's Buffer Festival, the annual Toronto YouTube festival, this October.
The Buffer Festival is running into its seventh year. The event showcases video premieres and brings together the best of the best when it comes to digital creators.
Previous years' attendees have included Scarborough, Ontario-born YouTube sensation and upcoming late-night host Lilly Singh, and fellow Canadian digital stars Matthew Santoro and EpicMealTime.
Buffer Festival was founded by Canadian YouTubers and entrepreneurs Corey Vidal, Corrado Coia, Saskia Vanell, and Samantha Fall. The great thing about the fest is it supports and encourages today's filmmakers, as well as helping educate up-and-coming creators.
If you don't have any content to show off but would love to see the panel of your fave YouTubers, you can get your tickets to attend all the action for this three-day event.
Red carpet stars and exclusive films, all the action of a real Hollywood scene, will be yours to see and experience if you participate in this event. The festival includes an awards gala, and premiere screenings, with YouTube's highest-quality content on full display.
Think of TIFF but for YouTubers! From music to comedy and documentaries to short films, you can see it all on the silver screen.
Tickets for the full three days are unfortunately sold out but there are still some left for individual events like keynotes and talks.
You might even get a chance to meet your fave YouTubers and creators if you attend. The full list of the creators at this year's festival can be found here.
If you're interested in submitting your work, you can do so here. Just note that there are only two days left to submit your content so if you have anything laying around that you think is totally worth showing off, go for it!
The YouTube world is taking over and you wouldn't want to miss out on this event.
Price: Individual screenings are $25 each and also include the red-carpet meetup after the screening.
Tickets for the Insight Series keynotes and talks are $99.
