The 100 greatest films like you’ve never seen them before.

Film Festival goers and longtime TIFF supporters, asking which films they considered essential cinema. At the same time, TIFF’s expert programmers debated the same question. The result: Two lists. Similar, yet different. By marrying both lists, the Essential 100 was born. To inaugurate the opening of TIFF Bell Lightbox, these 100 films will be screened along with a FREE exhibition—filling the main gallery with objects, images and art works that celebrate these iconic films, plus an exciting line-up of in-cinema events, concerts and in-person talks.
