TIFF is happy to announce a new screening series for Canadian film as part of the organization’s strategic focus on showcasing Canadian creators and talent. This new series will replace the Canada’s Top Ten Film Festival, which was held every January, by offering each feature film the opportunity to have a full theatrical run at TIFF Bell Lightbox throughout the year. Short films will screen at TIFF Bell Lightbox in a programme format.
