Film is a great ve­hi­cle for ex­plor­ing the world.

Through film we ex­am­ine cul­tures, pol­i­tics, re­li­gions, so­cial ac­tiv­i­ties and ev­ery emo­tion that hu­mans ex­pe­ri­ence. Septem­ber is a great time to see the world through high­pro­file film with the Toronto In­ter­na­tional Film Fes­ti­val ® , back with an­other phe­nom­e­nal line-up of films sure to please all film lovers. For 365 days a year, we spot­light both undis­cov­ered and es­tab­lished Canadian and in­ter­na­tional films. As the launch pad for award sea­son hope­fuls who strive to pre­miere their films at our Fes­ti­val, we pro­vide Toronto au­di­ences the op­por­tu­nity to see films that will make his­tory. The unique Fes­ti­val ex­pe­ri­ence in­cludes ev­ery­thing from red-car­pet mad­ness, in­ti­mate di­a­logues with film­mak­ers, fas­ci­nat­ing Q&A’s, to maybe even meet­ing a new fel­low film lover while wait­ing in line to see the next screen­ing. Not only does the Fes­ti­val bring cul­tur­ally di­verse com­mu­ni­ties to­gether dur­ing this amaz­ing ten-day film event, but it also in­vites vis­i­tors from all parts of the world to come to Toronto to be a part of the ex­pe­ri­ence. With ad­di­tional seats and screen­ings, even more Fes­ti­val-go­ers can now have the op­por­tu­nity to en­joy our var­ied se­lec­tion of films. We are de­lighted to be get­ting closer to the big event and look for­ward to see­ing you there!

We in­vite you to come ex­pe­ri­ence the Toronto In­ter­na­tional Film Fes­ti­val. See you in Septem­ber.
