Offering an unparalleled platform for career-enhancing networking, intellectual conversation, and unpredictable fun, TIFF is fueled by an interest in cultural discovery and diversity -- now made even more possible by the integration of international shorts. In addition to an always stellar lineup of domestic short films, non-Canadian films with runtimes of 50 minutes or less will this year be an integral part of the TIFF experience, adding fresh and invaluable perspectives to what has already been recognized as one of the most robust cinematic slates on the festival circuit.
Thanks to enthusiastic engagement with media outlets from every corner of the planet, TIFF connects up-and-coming filmmakers with powerful players from across the international media market. Year after year, film buyers converge at TIFF with an eye for great material and an appreciation for the Festival's curated, specialized screenings that empower fruitful relationships and exciting opportunities. Now, with the combined energies of TIFF's popular Short Cuts Canada program and its new Short Cuts International program, buyers and filmmakers alike will have seemingly endless riches at their disposal.
