Transforming the way people see the world, through film.

TIFF is a charitable, cultural organization dedicated to presenting the best of international and Canadian cinema and creating transformational experiences for film lovers and creators of all ages and backgrounds.

As Canada's premiere home of cinema, TIFF offers screenings, lectures, discussions, festivals, workshops, events, professional development and opportunities to meet, hear and learn from filmmakers from Canada and around the world.

We are committed to treating all individuals with respect, dignity and fairness by removing physical, social and economic barriers to participation. We ensure that all who wish to enjoy TIFF's programming can do so.

We offer mobility devices (which can be reserved by phoning our box office), and assistive listening devices. We also offer closed captioning, and descriptive sound—look for the CC and DS notations throughout our screening schedule. For more information, click here.

"I am enormously proud of what we have achieved in the areas of outreach, education, curation, and preservation."
