Buffer Festival is now accepting submissions for its fifth outing.
The Canadian YouTube festival is open to submissions from anyone, regardless of location, level of experience, or subscriber count. The event is based in Toronto and modelled on the Toronto International Film Festival. This year, it will run from 28 September until 1 October.

The festival will hold workshops for those whose submissions are successful. It will allow creators just starting out in the YouTube world to mingle with more established names. The event also holds YouTube world premieres, debuting new videos by top creators before they are released online.
Buffer Festival began in 2013. TenEighty have covered previous festivals in 2016 and 2015. Many UK YouTubers have been confirmed for this year’s event already, including Melanie Murphy and Dodie Clark. A full list can be found here.
In previous years at Buffer Festival, prominent UK YouTubers have premiered their work, creators have given revealing interviews, and romance has blossomed between stars. The festival gives people involved with YouTube at all levels a chance to interact with one another.
Locals who are over the age of 19 can also apply to be a volunteer for the festival:
