Brought together by a shared desire to celebrate the work of filmmakers from all over the world and discover emerging talent through the world’s largest creative digital community, TIFF joins forces with Instagram to bring you TIFFXINSTAGRAM SHORTS FESTIVAL, a new digital shorts competition, which invites aspiring and established filmmakers from around the globe to share their original works.
Instagram video is beautiful, addictive - and now lasts up to 60 seconds. Entrants uploaded their short film to Instagram, hashtag #TIFFXINSTAGRAM, and completed their submission on this page.
TIFF programmers are selecting 30 finalists to be showcased on TIFF’s website and Instagram channel from AUGUST 8 TO 17, and our six-person jury comprised of film industry professionals and influential Instagram community members will select one winner for the Judge’s Choice Award.
Judge’s Choice and Fan Favourite award-winners will receive a trip to Toronto to attend the Toronto International Film Festival this September to have a chance to network with the film community at our popular Industry Conference, see a selection of exciting film premieres, and visit the Facebook/Instagram Canada offices for a meet-and-greet with key members of the team. Winners will also have their short films showcased on TIFF and Instagram’s digital channels.
