Shadows of the Mind Cancels 2021 Film Festival

Film Clap Board

Shadows of the Mind Film Festival regretfully announces the cancellation of our February 2021 festival due to COVID-19.

The board and working committee found this a very difficult decision and thank the many generous patrons, volunteers and sponsors that allow this long-standing film festival to bring world-class cinema to the Sault for 21 years, while encouraging conversations about mental health and addictions in our community. We are hopeful that these conversations will continue and trust that everyone remain safe and healthy so that we can once again celebrate the magic of film together in 2022.

The Shadows team extends a special message of hope to the many people living in isolation during this time.

We have compiled a list of our recommended best 10 films over the past decade and invite everyone to check out these titles by visiting our website at and finding us on Facebook.
