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.
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.
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.
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.
Spend quality time with your favourite authors, screenwriters, and filmmakers who love books (and book-to-film adaptations) as much as you do.
