The Toronto Black Film Festival (TBFF) kicks off on February 16, screening a record 200 films from 30 countries.
The National Screen Institute is proud to be an ambassador for this special, 10-year anniversary edition.
For the last decade, TBFF has become Canada’s largest celebration of Black History Month, attracting hundreds of thousands of festivalgoers of all ages and ethnic backgrounds. Year after year, through its bold and diverse programming, TBFF has been a necessary platform for Black artists who would otherwise remain invisible. Coming together at TBFF has allowed members of all cultural communities to better understand one another.
Alumni films at the festival include:
- One of Ours – produced by Laura Perlmutter (NSI Drama Prize)
- The Blactor – executive produced by Jem Garrard (TELUS STORYHIVE)
TBFF is hosting panel discussions throughout the festival covering topics such as representation, music in film, voice-over talent, hair and makeup equity in the film industry, and more. Learn about these panels on the TBFF website.
The festival runs online from February 16 to 21. Get your tickets now!
