Launched in 1976, the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) is the largest public film festival in North America. This year, the 11-day festival is taking place during September 8-18, and expects to attract more than 150,000 attendees.
TIFF is a charitable cultural organization, and our mission is to transform the way people see the world through film.

More Funding is Available
In film, the story being told is the focus. Through culturally diverse content, filmmakers can educate and heighten awareness often outside the mainstream. For instance, this can include influencing audiences, through to the representation of genders and races onscreen. Nonetheless, grants and funding opportunities are available year-round to projects relating to film.
