Professional Development

TIFF Industry runs a series of tailored professional development programmes to assist talented filmmakers in fast-tracking their careers and projects. The broad range on offer includes bespoke opportunities for writers (TIFF Studio), directors (TIFF Talent Lab), actors (TIFF Rising Stars), and filmmakers with films in Official Selection at the Toronto International Film Festival (Boot Camp). Filmmaking teams are encouraged to apply for Telefilm Canada’s PITCH THIS! competition, and producers may apply to the OMDC's International Financing Forum.

TIFF's professional development programmes are supported in part by the Share Her Journey campaign, which is committed to increasing participation, skills, and opportunities for women behind and in front of the camera.
