ACTION Report Winter 2017


In our Winter 2017 edition of ACTION, we celebrate women who believe in the power of cinema. We bring you interviews with female filmmakers, festival directors and community workers who promote and represent TIFF’s mission to transform the way people see the world, through film.

A Journey Shared

Filmmaker Omoni Oboli attended the 2016 Festival with her film Okafor’s Law thanks to the generous donations made by our supporters to the Share This Journey fundraising campaign. We caught up with Omoni a few months after her return from Toronto to Nigeria.


Cinema, From Coast to Coast

Film Circuit brings engaging, rewarding cinema to over 150 communities across Canada annually. We spoke with a leader in one of these communities about her love of film and her work with TIFF’s national film outreach programme.



Celebrating Women in Film

During the 2016 Festival, TIFF held a reception to celebrate and highlight the many accomplishments made by women in the film industry. Here we present photos from the fantastic event.
