In-Class Filmmaking Residency

Return to Main Page

For classes of up to 32 students, grades 9–12. $1,500.

TIFF now brings a seven-week filmmaking programme to your classroom. Best suited for educators who are interested in creating a short film with their students under the guidance of a film-industry professional, this programme is comprised of seven hands-on sessions and concludes with a final screening of the film, either at school or at TIFF Bell Lightbox.

Students will have the opportunity to create their own stories, use professional equipment, analyze the impact of film and media on viewers, and learn how to communicate complex ideas to a wide audience.

Three residencies will be facilitated per school year, taking place in Fall 2019 and Spring 2020.

No pre-existing school equipment is required.

This programme is eligible for a 50% Pocket Fund subsidy, subject to application. Bookings are made on a first-come, first-served basis and are subject to an application process.
