The Toronto International Film Festival

The Toronto International Film Festival is one of seven programming initiatives of the Toronto International Film Festival Group. Discriminating and sophisticated Toronto filmgoers have made the Festival a must-attend event for the public, industry, and press alike. Over the past 30 years, the movie-going public has supported and shaped TIFF into one of the largest public film festivals in the world. Every September, the city opens its doors to experience the best cinema in the world.

Each year the Festival presents one of the world's largest showcases of Canadian film, demonstrating its commitment to cultivating and highlighting Canadian filmmaking talent. The Festival has also helped launch the careers of prominent filmmakers such as Atom Egoyan, David Cronenberg, Deepa Mehta, Patricia Rozema and Don McKellar. Recent past premieres include WATER, SAINT RALPH, EVE AND THE FIREHORSE, IT'S ALL GONE PETE TONG, FAMILIA, and C.R.A.Z.Y

The Toronto International Film Festival has a long history of discovering new films and talent. With programmes such as Discovery and Visions, the Festival spotlights both fresh voices and filmmakers exploring new cinematic territory. TSOTSI, HOTEL RWANDA, PARADISE NOW, THE DEATH OF MISTER LAZARESCU, and MY SUMMER OF LOVE are just some of the films that have gone on from Toronto to international acclaim.

The Festival has a major impact on the award season, including the Academy Awards®, BAFTA, European Film Awards, and the Golden Globes. Past films that have gone on to acclaim include CRASH, WALK THE LINE, PRIDE AND PREJUDICE, SIDEWAYS, MRS. HENDERSON PRESENTS, THE SQUID AND THE WHALE, BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN, NORTH COUNTRY and CAPOTE.
