TIFF Tribute Awards

TIFF Tribute Awards presented by BVLGARI
“This Festival is really stepping ahead and moving the needle by intention”
— Meryl Streep, recipient of the 2019 TIFF Tribute Actor Award

The TIFF Tribute Awards presented by Bvlgari honour the film industry’s outstanding contributors and their achievements, recognizing leading industry members, acting talent, directorial expertise, new talent, and below-the-line artists and creators. The Tribute Awards also serve as TIFF’s largest annual fundraiser to support our year-round programmes and core mission to transform the way people see the world through film. This year’s event will support the Viola Desmond Cinema campaign, which was launched through the Every Story Fund in 2022. In commemoration of the groundbreaking human rights and social justice legacy made by Viola Desmond and her sister Wanda Robson, TIFF has named our largest cinema the Viola Desmond Cinema, emphasizing that communion in a movie theatre belongs to everyone.

The 2023 TIFF Tribute Awards gala fundraiser will take place on Sunday, September 10 at the historic Fairmont Royal York.
