TIFF Next Wave Talent Lab

TIFF Next Wave - Public Programme

Skip to schedule and film credits

An intensive session taking place from 10:00am - 2:30pm on Saturday, February 15, the TIFF Next Wave Talent Lab exposes young filmmaking enthusiasts to industry professionals in an innovative way: part screening and Q&A, part fast-paced talent incubator. The day's events will be facilitated by a dynamic host who will kick-off the lab, guide the participants to various sessions, and summarize the day's programme.

Screening and Q&A options

Lab participants will have the option to attend one of two special screenings. Both screenings will have a director in attendance and both films are relevant to emerging artists and young filmmakers.

Talent Incubator

The Lab host guides the participants through a series of fast-paced workshops. Each speed workshop is designed to give the young filmmakers a chance to interact with visiting/local talent, complete a small creative exercise, and critique their peers' work, among other activities. The sessions are very hands-on introductory experiences in which participants acquire valuable skills and feedback from each other and the industry professionals.

Tickets are now available at a price of $40 plus any applicable fees. Please note that for every team that registers for the TIFF Next Wave 24-Hour Film Challenge, up to three participants can register for the TIFF Next Wave Talent Lab free of charge.
