The first TIFF Cinematheque retrospective of an American filmmaker whose fidelity to cinematic tradition has often placed him at odds with the movies of the moment.
The annus mirabilis that brought us such essential films as Eyes Wide Shut, Fight Club, Being John Malkovich, and Magnolia also marked a moment when cinema changed how we saw the world.
Suspense classics from Alfred Hitchcock, Brian De Palma, and Jordan Peele lead the charge in this season of our ongoing series of classics, favourites, rarities, and recent restorations.
The only woman director to successfully transition from silent to sound cinema, the Hollywood pioneer provided glittering showcases for such top female stars as Katharine Hepburn, Clara Bow, Lucille Ball, and Maureen O’Hara.
Boundary-pushing works from Mexico, Georgia, Germany, Canada, and the US comprise this season’s showcase of the world’s best, most challenging, and most provocative new international cinema.
The recent release of Le Havre and The Other Side of Hope — the first two films of a planned “Refugee Trilogy” — confirmed that the cinema of the po-faced Finnish master could hardly be more timely, requisite, or exhilarating.
Featuring several rarities and restorations, this retrospective celebrates the German master whose famously opulent visual style never overshadowed his moral gravity and formal mastery.
This select retrospective honours the legacy of an icon who ceaselessly challenged Hollywood’s prescriptive gender roles and helped define the mid-century idea of the “modern woman.”
Guillermo del Toro and TIFF programmer Diana Sanchez curate this expansive and eclectic survey of Mexican film history.
DJs or cinephiles? Film club or dance club? All of the above, when the boys of Boosie Fade take over the Lightbox for special screenings and can’t-miss after-parties.
Our third retrospective of an artist whose boldness, curiosity, and uniquely sensual approach to cinema constantly invite us to see the world in different ways.
Since its founding in 2002, the Buenos Aires–based film collective has produced over a dozen feature films whose miniscule budgets are in inverse proportion to their scope, imagination, and adventurous aesthetics.
With her masterful first two features Mundane History and By the Time It Gets Dark, the Thailand-born artist has announced herself as one of the most formally daring narrative filmmakers in world cinema.
