2018 was a landmark year for our efforts to transform the way people see the world through film. We shared eye-opening titles like ROMA and ANTHROPOCENE: The Human Epoch, brought 22,000 people together in support of gender parity in the film industry at the Share Her Journey Rally, and provided opportunities for over 250 emerging filmmakers to improve their skills and advance their careers.
All of this was made possible through the support of the thousands of supporters in our community.
2019 will be another incredible year because of the continued support and passion of film lovers who share TIFF’s commitment to film. In our Winter 2019 edition, we share some of the events and programmes that will make this a year to remember.
Screening this spring at TIFF Bell Lightbox is our series on Mexican cinema, curated by Guillermo del Toro and TIFF programmer Diana Sanchez. Ahead of the series launch, Sanchez shared some insight on this expansive and eclectic survey of Mexican film history.
The TIFF Next Wave Film Festival — programmed for young people, by young people — recently took over TIFF Bell Lightbox. Before the festival began, TIFF Next Wave Committee members Tshego, Natalie, and Haikun shared what films they were excited to see.
