TIFF’s mission is to transform the way people see the world through film. Through our multi-faceted cultural and educational film programming, we stimulate and provoke audiences to challenge perceptions and spark imaginations.
But none of this would be possible without your support.
You make TIFF happen — meaning you make film happen.

The response we received from supporters like you was overwhelming. Here, we highlight some of the wonderful movie memories you decided to share with us — and the next generation of film lovers.
