YouTube Film Festival to Return to Downtown Toronto

Toronto, ON (PRWEB) June 18, 2014

Buffer Festival is returning to downtown Toronto this October after a successful first run in the citys Entertainment District last year. The 3-day event, done in partnership with YouTube and co-produced by the Canadian Film Centre, was a major success that saw over 5,000 tickets sold. Attendees viewed YouTubes latest and greatest content up on the big screen in theatres that included the TIFF Bell Lightbox, Scotiabank Theatre, Glenn Gould Studio, CN Tower Maple Leaf Cinema, and the Jane Mallett Theatre.

This years festival will take place from Friday, October 17th to Sunday, October 19th, 2014 with over 40 unique theatrical screenings, each 90 minutes in length. World-renowned internet video directors, entertainers, vloggers, and personalities will host and showcase an array of YouTube's highest quality content in a cinematic setting. The festival offers two types of presentations: genre screenings that highlight YouTube content across a common theme (examples: viral videos, science & education, short films), and creator screenings that showcase bodies of work from individual YouTube creators (examples: Shay Carl, WheezyWaiter, MattG124).

The festival schedule and list of attending YouTube stars will be continually updated over the coming months (available on http://www.bufferfestival.com) with over 100 YouTubers anticipated, but heres a quick look at the most prominent guests attending:


Shay Carl (Shaytards)
Jack and Finn Harries (JacksGap)
Rhett & Link (RhettandLink)
AsapSCIENCE (AsapSCIENCE)
Charlie McDonnell (charlieissocoollike)
Shawna Howson (Nanalew)
Jack Douglass (jacksfilms)
Jenn McAllister (jennxpenn)
Michael Buckley (buckhollywood)
Sawyer Hartman (sawyerhartman)
and much more...

New this year, aspiring videomakers from all over the world will have the opportunity to be featured in the Toronto-based festival. Unreleased digital short films can be submitted to the festival until July 31st, with the selected videos being presented at a special premiere screening Sunday, October 19th. Rules and regulations for submissions can be found online at http://www.bufferfestival.com.

I am thrilled to bring a new year of YouTubes best videos and videomakers to theatres in Toronto. Sharing our favourite YouTube videos with friends and family is something we delight in, and with Buffer Festival that experience gets magnified by the cinematic power of the big screen. With the success of last years event, were able to expand our theatres, premieres, YouTube guests, meetups, and a lot more. I couldnt be more excited, said Corey Vidal, Creative Director and Founder of Buffer Festival and President of ApprenticeA Productions.
