Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF)

It is a charitable, cultural organization that aims to change people’s perspective about the world through films. It happens every September in Toronto, Ontario, in Canada.

Established in 1976, it is now considered one of the most reputable film festivals worldwide. It has helped launch the best Canadian, Hollywood, and international films. It is also regarded as the second most important film festival next to Cannes.

Although TIFF has given attention to mainstream films, it continues to concentrate more on independent films. National films and directors from the past highlight films in Canada, and films from Asia, Africa, and South America.

Because the purpose of TIFF is to lead in creating cultural discovery through films, it is dedicated to showing the best Canadian and international films to people. The film festival offers lectures, screenings, workshops, discussions, support, and an opportunity to meet Canadian and international filmmakers.
