Welcoming a flavorful mix of narrative features, documentaries, and shorts, TIFF draws upon the robust artistic community of Toronto to draw dynamic films and filmmakers from around the world. Participants will benefit from access to a broad network of media outlets, a thriving social scene enhanced by the festival's unique energy, and numerous opportunities to discuss their films with audience members, with film buyers, and with fellow creative forces. There's even a "Mavericks" discussion series, providing direct access to some of the biggest names in filmmaking.
TIFF is characterized by audacious selections and by staggering diversity. Cultural discovery is a centerpiece of the eleven-day event, and several visitors return, again and again, to gain new insights into the international market. Every film invited to the festival will be guaranteed at least one private and industry, and at least two public, screenings - a collective benefit that will prove invaluable for talented filmmakers eager to market, discuss, and experience their films with appreciate and powerful audiences from every corner of the globe.
