CFC HOMECOMING (formerly the CFC Annual BBQ Fundraiser) is a reimagined annual fundraiser celebrating CFC residents, alumni and the screen industry.

On Sunday, September 11, 2022, CFC talent, friends, sponsors, donors and industry folks reunited on our campus in celebration of the CFC and the incredible storytellers who’ve come through our doors. Guests relished the dynamic mix of activations, performances and experiences onsite, while enjoying delicious food and drinks from local vendors and visiting with new and old friends alike.

First Nations Performers Shirley Hay and Marilyn George shared their passion and art with guests through their traditional songs and chants. Slaight Music artist Roslyn Witter gave us a first listen of her single, “Good Vibes” – appropriately named for the energy at CFC HOMECOMING. A talented group of dancers from Jade’s Hip Hop Academy showed off their moves during a special routine, and DJ Craig Dominic blended the perfect mix of tracks to enhance the celebratory atmosphere.

In between performances, guests could be found immersed in two different digital media activations powered by our very own CFC Media Lab – Stories from the Multiverse, a collection of eight immersive audio, VR, AR and AI experiences, and MetaLounge, an engaging NFT gallery, presented by Artcryption, with support from FedDev Ontario – buying raffle tickets, or bidding on a number of exciting silent auction prizes.

We could of course not host CFC HOMECOMING without the generous support of our partners, donors and sponsors. We extend our sincere thanks to our presenting sponsor, Netflix, for making this event possible, and for their steadfast support of the CFC over the years. We’d also like to thank all of our incredible event sponsors for their generous contributions to CFC HOMECOMING and for investing in the next generation of homegrown talent: AMC Networks, Shaftesbury, eOne, Cinespace Studios , Chubb, Dufferin Gate Studios, Pinewood Studios, Goodmans LLP, William F.
