SYFF’s vision is to showcase the aspirations and convey the struggles of Syrians. Our mission is to build bridges, inspire conversations and engage audience in thoughtful debates on social justice, human rights and global citizenship. We strive to support young talents in film and arts and enrich Toronto’s vibrant multicultural identity.

Our annual nonprofit film festival run by dedicated volunteers aims to give a voice to filmmakers, who often risk their lives and sometimes even the lives of those they love to capture important footage and document stories that would otherwise never reach the public.

SYFF accepts submissions for feature films, shorts, as well as documentaries made no later than 2012.
