A message to our Members

When you support TIFF — from joining as a Member to making an additional donation — you are sharing your love of film and helping us build upon the pillars of our For the Love of Film Fund, so we can reimagine film experiences, invest in TIFF’s recovery and sustainability, and unleash the power of under-represented storytellers and social change through film.
