TIFF's year round programming provides a platform to watch, discover, and discuss classic and contemporary cinema. Through film screenings and retrospectives, subscription series, and on-stage conversations with expert guests, we invite audiences to deepen their engagement with the moving image.
Running throughout our nation's Sesquicentennial year, this ambitious series pairs film screenings with accompanying talks by subject-matter experts to transform the Cinematheque into a forum for ideas, discussion and debate.
Our ongoing showcase of the best short films continues with Our Digital Lives, an exploration of how technology has changed the way that we experience the world.
Formerly The Free Screen and now taking the name of the Festival's acclaimed annual programme, our year-round series of experimental film and video art spotlights Robert Breer, Trinh T. Minh-ha, and the work of Toronto's Funnel Film Collective this season.

Beginning in January and running throughout the year, this free programme will present moving-image installations, special events and guests, an extensive online catalogue, and screenings across the country, all based on a list of 150 essential moving-image works from Canada’s history.
