The film categories that will be screened during the Global Tourism Film Festival (GTFF)include feature films, documentaries, short films and tourism commercials. Consistent with GTFF 2021, which was held in partnership with the Netherlands Tourism Board, GTFF 2023 will present films extolling a central connection with tourism. Having received entries from almost every continent, GTFF 2023 selections will include films that showcase fascinating world regions and cultures.

The 2023 Festival Edition features a diverse slate of workshops and seminars, sponsored by events partner Canadore College. Event attendees will have access to a suite of educational programming, delivered by expert film industry professionals with credits that include network television and film.

GTFF 2023 will spotlight Canada’s renowned film production incentives with invaluable insight into production credits, incentives, and film financing, with workshops conducted by the National Film Board of Canada (NFB), Canada’s Telefilm and Ontario Creates.

Hosted in Canada, the 2023 festival theme integrates the country’s majestic natural heritage, multiculturalism, and indigenous peoples. Northern Ontario is a premier region encapsulating these attributes with North Bay established as the ‘Gateway to the North’, only 3.5 hours from Toronto. “On behalf of the Global Tourism Film Festival, I am delighted the GTFF will be held in Canada in partnership with the City of North Bay, which has secured an eminent future serving the film and tourism sectors in exciting ways. I thank the City, Tourism North Bay and event sponsor, Canadore College for its support in delivering a captivating GTFF 2023,” said Nisha Amin, Executive Director, GTFF.

North Bay Mayor Al McDonald said, “I am so pleased our community has been selected to host the 2023 Global Tourism Film Festival (GTFF).” He added, “On behalf of City Council and the community, we look forward to welcoming GTFF organizers and attendees to North Bay in April.  North Bay is very film and visitor friendly, so this festival is a great opportunity to showcase two very important industries.”
