Kicking off the TIFF Next Wave Film Festival, Battle of the Scores challenges bands to create and perform (live!) original music for an original short film. Submissions are now open for the 2019 competition. If you are aged 14–24 and are in a band, sign up here!
Selected bands will perform as part of the Opening Night of the TIFF Next Wave Film Festival on February 15, 2019. If you have any questions, email us at email@example.com.
Founded in 2010, the TIFF Next Wave Committee is a group of twelve students ranging in age from 15 to 18 and selected from a competitive pool of hopeful young film enthusiasts. Hailing from specialized arts institutions, public schools and private schools across the GTA, the Committee members’ tastes, opinions and critical voices are as diverse as they are strong. Some are aspiring filmmakers, writers and actors; some are interested in learning the business of film and festivals; some like planning cultural events; and some just love movies. All have demonstrated a spirit that has impressed TIFF leaders.
With the guidance of TIFF staff, the Committee is charged with planning some major teen-oriented events at TIFF Bell Lightbox, including the TIFF Next Wave Film Festival.
The TIFF Next Wave Committee is supported by the Slaight Family Foundation Learning Fund.
