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.

TIFF firmly believes that film is a valuable learning tool for any classroom. Gain access to professional equipment and knowledge through the In-Class Filmmaking Residency or through Hands-On Filmmaking Workshops at TIFF Bell Lightbox. Learn to think critically about film and gain insights from industry professionals and creators through the TIFF Youth Film Series. Then use our included Teacher Resources to help apply the skills learned at TIFF to your lessons.

Film — whether watching it or making it — enables students to think critically about big ideas and encourages students to share their unique voice. We encourage all classes to submit their short film for competition in the 2019 TIFF Jump Cuts High-School Filmmakers Showcase.
