The Vox Popular Media Arts Festival, formerly known as the Bay Street Film Festival, is an annual film and arts festival staged in Thunder Bay, Ontario.[1]

First established in 2005 by Kelly Saxberg and Ron Harpelle,[2] the festival's mission was to feature local, national, and international films with the theme "films for the people". The festival was sponsored by Flash Frame, a local film and video network, and was originally held on 314 Bay Street in the historic Finnish Labour Temple in the heart of the city's Finnish quarter.[3]

The 2017 festival was the last to be held under the Bay Street Film Festival name.[3] It relaunched in 2018 as the Vox Popular Media Arts Festival, expanding its programming to include theatrical performance, music and installation art presentations.[4]
