I’m super excited to announce that I’m a featured creator at this years Buffer Festival!
What is Buffer Festival?
Buffer Festival is an annual theatrical showcase that celebrates international video content from the most acclaimed creators on YouTube. For me, Buffer Festival is the TIFF of YouTube. The festival will be held in Toronto’s Entertainment District from October 23-25. During this weekend event, you will get to see your favourite YouTubers showcase premieres of high-quality YouTube content in a variety of theatrical screenings, attend a red carpet gala event, and participate in Creator Day.
How does it work?
You can purchase tickets for individual screenings that are approximately 90 minutes long and features many YouTube creators as they host, engage, and premiere their new videos to the audience. Screenings are divided up into categories, where each screening features many different YouTubers who’s content falls under that theme.
The panels I will be on are:
I would LOVE to see you at one of my screenings (or all if you’re up for it). Tickets are on sale right now and the first 100 people to sign up for each screening also get a free invitation to a meet and greet with the YouTubers hosting that category.
Gala Red Carpet
If you can’t make it to the screenings, you can also attend the Buffer Festival Gala Red Carpet. This is an outdoor event that takes place prior to the exclusive Gala Premiere. The Gala Red Carpet is a free event that anyone can attend. Here you can meet your favourite YouTubers as well!
The Red Carpet event will take place outside of the Roy Thomson Hall on Friday, October 23rd from 6pm-8pm. Be aware that space is limited so I suggest you arrive early to guarantee yourself a spot.
Are you interested in starting a YouTube channel? Perhaps you already have a channel but are looking for ways to grow create better content and grow your audience? This year, Buffer Festival is offering a hands-on, workshop-filled day. The workshop attendees will receive insight from established YouTube creators, industry professionals, and technical teachers on how you can make better content, improve your brand, and reach a larger audience. Topics will focus on all aspects of the video-making process, from finding the right gear, using studio spaces, technical film knowledge in production and post-production, to utilizing YouTube’s platform. If you’re interested in attending Creator Day, you can sign up to receive more information on the Buffer Festival website.
I would really love to meet all of you. If you are from Toronto or will be in the area during October 23-25, you should come hang out with me at Buffer Festival. I really hope to see you there!
