The Toronto International Film Festival is replacing an annual January event for Canadian features – with a year-round theatrical series.
TIFF says Canada’s Top Ten Film Festival will be replaced with a new screening series for homegrown projects – and will offer each feature film the opportunity to have a full theatrical run at TIFF Bell Lightbox – throughout the year.
The festival says it’s making the change as part of its five-year strategic plan – to focus on showcasing Canadian creators and talent – and will “put audiences’ needs at its heart.”
