Toronto International Filmmakers’ Festival (TIFF) primarily started for independent filmmakers and to recognise their work of art. We understand that the process of submitting to film festivals and the challenges met when trying to get recognition for their work in the industry is very hectic. That’s why TIFF was born, with the motive to support filmmakers in every way possible. TIFF is dedicated to present the best of cinema and create transformational experiences for film enthusiasts and creators of all ages and backgrounds. Our mission is to award and showcase the best independent films from around the world. Our motto is simple: Empower Indie Filmmakers.
