Share on Nextdoor
For the sixth year, the Canton Film Fest will return to downtown Canton for a three-day "film forward event."

The festival will feature short films made by independent directors from Canton, Northeast Ohio and all across the country.

Festivities kick off tonight at 6 at the Canton Palace Theatre with the Stark Cool Picture Prize Submissions followed by screenings of Safety Net, a film about a working class man struggling to keep his home from foreclosure, and Romeo is Bleeding, a movie about a turf war between two Northern Californian neighborhoods.

The directors of both films will participate in Q&A sessions after the screenings.

Tickets are just $5 per day. They can be purchased online at or by calling the Palace Box Office at 330-454-8172.
