Melanie’s new film is set to feature among many, with eight unique screenings sorted into themes, from Women of Youtube, to Travel and Adventure, Comedy, and more.
For the first time this year, Buffer Festival is set to take place over four days, from 28 September to 1 October at the Elgin and Winter Garden Theatres in Toronto Canada. The extra day allows one to attend all eight screenings and the red carpet award show gala event, which was not possible in previous years.
The festival will feature an industry day with workshops and panel discussions. A creator day is also planned where aspiring creators can network and learn from established YouTubers.
