Just a note — all Next Wave programming is eligible for our Rush policy (not the band. Sorry Geddy). Rush means that if the screening sells out online but there are still empty seats in the cinema 15 minutes before showtime, we'll hand out tickets to people who come and line up in person. So don't leave your seat empty! If you already have a ticket, please make sure to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the start of the screening to secure your seat.
Founded in 2010, the TIFF Next Wave Committee is a group of twelve students ranging in age from 15 to 18 and selected from a competitive pool of hopeful young film enthusiasts. Hailing from specialized arts institutions, public schools and private schools across the GTA, the Committee members’ tastes, opinions and critical voices are as diverse as they are strong. Some are aspiring filmmakers, writers and actors; some are interested in learning the business of film and festivals; some like planning cultural events; and some just love movies. All have demonstrated a spirit that has impressed TIFF leaders.
With the guidance of TIFF staff, the Committee is charged with planning some major teen-oriented events at TIFF Bell Lightbox, including the TIFF Next Wave Film Festival.
