ALL PROCEEDS GO TO TIFF’s
SHARE HER JOURNEY CAMPAIGN,
DIRECTLY IMPACTING WOMEN IN FILM

For the past three decades, Piers Handling has led TIFF through its growth into one of the world’s pre-eminent film institutions. Under his guidance, the organization has introduced groundbreaking works to film lovers around the world and created a permanent home for cinema in the heart of downtown Toronto. In honour of Piers’s 37th and final Festival, we are hosting an event that celebrates his legacy, which includes empowering women as leaders in the industry.

Through Piers’s advocacy and leadership, TIFF is heralded internationally as a champion for women in film. The TIFF Tribute Gala event is a fundraiser for our Share Her Journey campaign, committed to supporting and empowering female voices, with proceeds going to labs, workshops, residencies, and an accelerator programme specifically designed to advance women’s careers in the industry.
