Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) takes place every year in September in Canada.
Films which premiere at Toronto are often nominated for Academy Awards the following year.

TIFF does not hand out individual prizes for Best Actor or Actress but focuses on amongst others the following awards:
People’s Choice Award & Best Canadian Feature Film

Last Wedding

Opening Night Film: Last Wedding directed by Bruce Sweeney, starring Benjamin Ratner and Frida Betrani

Amelie

People’s Choice Award: Amelie directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet, starring Audrey Tatou and Matthieu Kassovitz

Atanarjuat

Best Canadian Feature Film: Atanarjuat: The Fast Runner directed by Zacharias Kunuk

Note: During a hastily arranged press conference on September 11 2001, TIFF Festival Director Piers Handling and Managing Director Michelle Maheuxa announced that 30 public screenings and 20 press screenings would be cancelled during the sixth day of the festival due to the September 11, 2001 attacks in New York City and Washington, D.C. The festival resumed for the final four days though some films were cancelled because the film prints could not reach Toronto due to flight restrictions.

  • How Film Festivals Safely Made Their In-Person Return With COVID-19 Precautions
    With all due respect to the streamers who kept us distracted during the pandemic, movies were meant to be seen on the big screen, in the company of others and, ideally, debated and dissected with fellow cinephiles as we exit the theater.
