Filmmaker Lab

TIFF Filmmaker Lab is a talent development programme that takes place during the Toronto International Film Festival in September.

Each year, 20 Canadian and international directors receive an exceptional professional development experience, and an introduction to the global community of filmmaking. Over a five-day period, participants have the opportunity to interact with and learn from internationally acclaimed filmmakers and guests.

Fellowships generously supported by Every Story and Share Her Journey donors ensure that programme participants are given additional financial support to help them fulfill their creative vision.

What’s included:

  • A five-day, feature film–focused programme, taking place in-person from September 6 to 10, 2023
  • Mentorship from TIFF’s programming team and industry experts
  • Access to the 2023 Toronto International Film Festival
