The “Coming Soon” Festival was an annual night of web series/film trailer and teaser screenings that ran from 2013-2015. Carrie Cutforth produced the screening nights to celebrate the fantastic community of Canadian web series/film creators in response to various funders and organizations requiring a trailer or teaser to be included with not-yet-produced series applications for financing. It was also a good excuse to drink beer with each other, and was the first of its kind festival to devote exclusively to showcasing trailers.
The screening nights included industry networking and discussion of moving forward with productions, bootstrap methods, DIY, and alternate financing models.
Teaser/trailer screenings included Whatever, Linda (Whatever, Linda Productions/Secret Location), Space Riders (iThentic et al), and The Cart (Gaariwala; Mediaaid Bangladesh), just to name a few.
