Riding the Next Wave

Teenagers Dasola Dina and Sariena Luy are enthusiastic members of the 2016/2017 Next Wave Committee, which is dedicated to programming screenings and events for youth throughout the year. We spoke with these passionate film lovers about their experience at TIFF and the joys of working with a curatorial team.
