CineSiege is an annual showcase screening of outstanding productions created in the previous year by undergraduate students in the Department of Film at York University.
CineSiege features a juried selection of short films, chosen by leading lights of the Canadian film and media scene. The winning films are picked by the jury from a shortlist of up to two dozen productions, nominated from all the films produced by students in all levels of the program each year.

CineSiege is presented each year at a cinema in downtown Toronto. Jurors are on hand to introduce the CineSiege picks and explain why they were selected.
