INTRODUCTION

The Greater Toronto Area (GTA) Short Films Association has been around since the early 2000s. This group of prominent actors, directors and support film staff is involved in increasing the public knowledge of the GTA with the quality film work being done in the GTA (Toronto, Mississauga, Brampton and North York). Increased public knowledge translates to greater funding sponsors and audience support.

This year the GTA Short Film Association has contacted the “Pro Team” project management group to coordinate the first ever GTA Short Film Awards.
