TIFF Transforms Fall 2018 Edition

TIFF Transforms

Fall 2018 Edition

In 2017, TIFF launched Share Her Journey, our five-year, $3-million campaign aimed at tackling gender inequality in the film industry. One year in, we’re making incredible strides — but none of this would have been possible without the overwhelming support of 1,270 donors who have joined our movement.

In our Fall 2018 TIFF Transforms report, we’re shining a spotlight on the incredible things that we’re achieving and how, together, we’re changing the face of film.

What change looks like

Watch this video to see the many ways in which TIFF and the Share Her Journey community are standing with women in film.



A day in the life of Micki Moore Resident Nikki Saltz

This August, with the support of Micki Moore and Share Her Journey donors, we launched the Micki Moore Residency and welcomed our first recipient: Nikki Saltz. This opportunity allows Saltz to develop her feature-film screenplay while living and working in the heart of downtown Toronto. What is life like as the Micki Moore Resident? We wanted to find out, so we asked Saltz to share what a typical day looks like for her.


“We are what’s next”

On September 8, 2018, over 22,000 filmmakers, film lovers, and allies came together in person and online for the Share Her Journey Rally. The crowd heard from a lineup of inspirational speakers, including 17-year-old TIFF Next Wave Committee member Zavia Forrest, about why the voices of female filmmakers are vital to her and to the next generation.



UNESCO World Day for Audiovisual Heritage at TIFF

On October 28, 2018, to mark the UNESCO World Day for Audiovisual Heritage, the Film Reference Library presented a special screening of Mansfield Park on a 35mm print from TIFF’s collection. Following the screening, the film’s director, Patricia Rozema, stopped by for a chat.
