TIFF Unveils 2018 Programmes & Programmers

 66996fd0-734a-45b5-ad55-4224e609e946.png

 

The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) announced their 2018 lineup of programmes and programmers. The programming team, comprised of 22 of the industry’s most seasoned and talented film experts and curators, consists of nine men and 12 women.

"In 2017, the TIFF programming team worked tirelessly to curate a Festival experience that resulted in the release of some of year’s most critically acclaimed films, including Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri (Winner, TIFF 2017 Grolsch People’s Choice Award), The Shape of Water, Lady Bird, I, Tonya, Faces Places and A Fantastic Woman, among many others," said Cameron Bailey, Artistic Director of TIFF. “As the 2018 Festival lineup comes together, the programming team is working to curate the most memorable experience possible for our audiences, through a diverse selection of the highest-quality films from around the globe.”

TIFF’s representation of women amongst its programmers is reflective of the organization’s continuing commitment to normalizing gender parity and equality for future generations. With a clear understanding that there is still much more work to be done, TIFF intends to continue its strong representation of women in the Festival programming team.

“Being a woman in a leadership position at TIFF allows me to be the change I want to see by supporting, inspiring and empowering the women around me,” comments Kerri Craddock, Director of Programming for the Festival. “With TIFF’s mission being to transform the way people see the world through film, we need to create an environment where people have what they need to be their best. Diversity across all levels of our Festival programming team is key to achieving that goal.”

This year, TIFF is pleased to announce that Danis Goulet will be programming Canadian Features alongside Steve Gravestock. Goulet programmed Short Cuts, the Festival's annual showcase of the best in Canadian and international short film, between 2015 and 2017, previously worked as Short Cuts Programming Associate, and has had her own short films presented at TIFF.

Lisa Haller, Festival Programming's Manager and Shorts Programmer, will be filling Goulet’s shoes as co-programmer for Short Cuts. Haller has worked for TIFF since 2010. In addition to her work as the Programming Associate for Short Cuts for the last three years, she has also managed the Canada's Top Ten Film Festival, including programming the student shorts selection for the past three years, and began programming short films for TIFF Kids International Film Festival in 2018.

Jennifer Barkin, Senior Manager of Festival Programming, will be making her debut as the TIFF Kids programmer for the Festival after managing and programming for the TIFF Kids International Film Festival for the last eight years. Barkin will also continue in her role as the programmer for Festival Street, TIFF's annual closure of King and John Streets near TIFF Bell Lightbox, which features stage performances, nightly film screenings, and other fun activities during the first four days of the Festival.
