Public Supporters

The Toronto International Film Festival gratefully acknowledges the continuing support of the public sector, whose contributions allow us to stimulate a more successful Canadian film culture and industry and to promote the widest possible enjoyment of Canadian cinema throughout Canada and the world.


For the past 40 years, Telefilm Canada has been an essential federal cultural agency dedicated to the development and promotion of the Canadian audiovisual industry. Their support of this year’s Festival allows us to effectively promote and celebrate Canadian film as well as to offer industrial professional-development programmes for Canadian filmmakers. Telefilm is also a cultural investor in cinema, television and new media. This year’s Canadian film selection will include a number of films that were made possible with Telefilm’s financial participation.


Ontario Media Development Corporation

Ontario Media Development Corporation (OMDC), an agency of the Ministry of Culture, is the central catalyst for the province’s cultural media cluster including book publishing, the film and television, interactive digital media, magazine publishing and music industries. OMDC's support allows the Festival to showcase our province’s incredible filmmaking industry and to offer professional-development opportunities for Ontario filmmakers.

The Ministry of Ontario Tourism supports delivery of high-quality tourism and recreation experiences to Ontarians and visitors to Ontario, and works to make our province a year-round world-class travel destination.

The Ontario Arts Council

The Ontario Arts Council (OAC) is an arm's-length agency of Ontario’s Ministry of Culture that offers grants and services to professional, Ontario-based artists and arts organizations to support the arts in all its forms. Their support of the Festival helps to build Ontario’s film industry and culture, and exhibit new and alternative forms of cinema that raise the profile of the arts in the province.

The Ontario Trillium Foundation, an agency of the Government of Ontario, helps finance community-based initiatives in the arts and culture, environment, human and social services, and sports and recreation sectors. The Foundation is providing support to TIFF as it prepares to expand its programming and services at our new home, Bell Lightbox.



The City of Toronto

The City of Toronto helps local business succeed and provides support to key sectors within the city, including the film industry. The City is a presenting partner for the Award for Best Canadian Feature Film and also supports our efforts to make Toronto an internationally-recognized business destination for the production, distribution, and promotion of film.


The Toronto International Film Festival would also like to recognize our international government supporters, including consulates, embassies, high commissions, trade offices and institutes, for their assistance.
