TIFF Jump Cuts
High-School Filmmakers Showcase


The TIFF Jump Cuts High-School Filmmakers Showcase celebrates the innovative films being created in classrooms across Ontario, spotlighting the most creative and promising films — regardless of previous filmmaking experience. This high-profile event offers classes the opportunity to see their short films on the big screen at TIFF Bell Lightbox, making it the ideal way to encourage filmmaking in your classroom and to celebrate your class’s filmmaking achievements.

Submissions for the next Jump Cuts High-School Filmmakers Showcase will open in January 2020. Please check back in November 2019 for more information.
