TIFF is a charitable cultural organization with a mission to transform the way people see the world through film. It is held each September in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Founded in 1976, the TIFF is now one of the most prestigious film festivals in the world. TIFF has become the launching pad for the best of international, Hollywood and Canadian cinema, and is recognized as the most important film festival after Cannes.

Eventhough the festival has begun to give more attention to mainstream Hollywood films, it still maintains its focus on independent cinema. It features retrospectives of national cinemas and individual directors, highlights of Canadian cinema, as well as a variety of African, South American, and Asian films.
