In 2005, The Bay Street Film Festival started as a way to showcase the work being produced by independent filmmakers locally around Northwest Ontario and abroad.
We love it because it's based in Canada, just like the movie from the creator of The Lighthouse, called The Witch.
The festival is apparently still running under a different name!
Bay Street Film Festival isn't the only film festival to have stopped running. Middle Coast, Lifetree, SoCal Independent, North x North, Screentest, Minneapolis Underground, Julian Film Fest, San Antonio Independent Christian film festival, and Way Down, have all also ended their festivals.
