TIFF is reimagining its family programming to grow with the evolution of TIFF audiences and as a result, will be retiring the annual TIFF Kids International Film Festival. TIFF will continue to showcase family-friendly films throughout the year and host workshops and screenings for high school students.

“We refreshed our offerings because we’re listening very closely to our audiences, and continuing our Audience First strategy. We’ve heard that people are seeking unique experiences and more variety, and this pivot means we can invest greater energy and resources into better serving our family and youth audiences — a new generation of film lovers who are incredibly passionate about culture and the discovery of film. TIFF will always be a place for lifelong learning where people of all ages and walks of life can come together to experience programming that transforms the way they see the world. Thank you to everyone who has supported TIFF Kids over the past 20+ years.”
