Ida Lupino: Independent Woman

August 4 — September 2

One of Warner Bros.’ top stars in the 1940s, Ida Lupino moved behind the camera as an independent director-writer-producer to create a series of bold, challenging films on then-taboo subjects.

Panique: French Crime Classics

Spend your summer in the company of hired killers, femmes fatales, mad scientists and other shady characters with this stellar collection of classic crime films, several in new or restored prints.

Something in the Air: The Cinema of Olivier Assayas

June 22 — August 20

Now reaching a new level of international prominence thanks to his recent collaborations with Kristen Stewart (Personal Shopper), the brilliant French cineaste has built a stylish and diverse body of work on such subjects as youthful revolt, political terrorism, corporate intrigue and filmmaking itself.

Special Screenings

Martin Scorsese, Robert Bresson, Josef von Sternberg, Marcel Pagnol, David Fincher, Lena Dunham, and Rudy Ray Moore (!) are just a few of the auteurs celebrated in our seasonal programme of classics, favourites, rarities, and recent restorations.

Kathryn Bigelow: On the Edge

From July 21 — August 15

Once consigned to Hollywood purgatory, the Oscar-winning director of The Hurt Locker has battled her way back to the top of the heap as one of the most acclaimed and exciting American filmmakers working today.

Army of Shadows: The Films of Jean-Pierre Melville

June 29 — August 13

A massive retrospective devoted to the French master of crime cinema, whose strikingly stylized hard-boiled thrillers were a powerful influence on Jean-Luc Godard, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Martin Scorsese, Quentin Tarantino and John Woo.

Aabiziingwashi (Wide Awake/Unable to Sleep)

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.

Short Cuts

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.

Thanks to the Canadian Film Institute; Aimée Mitchell, CFMDC; Eleni Gioti, Light Cone.

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.
