Toronto Fall Film Festival Digital Tasting Tour

Toronto Fall Film Festival Digital Tasting Tour

Inviting audiences to discover new Canadian or Indigenous cinema from 7 Toronto film festivals

This fall, Toronto film festivals are joining forces to bring entertainment to Greater Toronto Area audiences in social isolation by offering a series of free digital screenings. Participating festivals have selected one Canadian film or Indigenous program from their lineups to be offered to audiences FREE OF CHARGE.

Each participating festival has traditionally been focused on its own communities but we found ourselves reaching out to each other when COVID-19 changed the landscape of presentation for us all. Through our ongoing dialogue and collaboration, we all felt a sense of connection and that links our communities together and we realized that we could have a lot to offer each other’s audiences.

The COVID-19 pandemic has reminded us all that only together can we weather the storms. We believe that films have the healing powers that can bring communities together and diminish the issues that try to divide us.

We hope you enjoy this selection of free programming.
