    Regent Park is an area in transition, largely populated by new immigrants and Aboriginal Peoples. Created in 2003, Regent Park Film Festival (RPFF) is Toronto's ONLY free-of-charge community film festival dedicated to showcasing local and international independent works relevant to residents of the largest and oldest public housing in Canada. The films we present reflect key themes such as, immigration, inner city issues, cultural identity and multicultural relationships. RPFF's principle activity is to organize an annual festival along with year-round school and community screenings, panel discussions, performances and professional training at no cost. The festival aims to reach isolated communities throughout Regent Park and beyond and provide a forum for them to engage in critical dialogue on social issues and to enjoy films from all over the world.
