Talking about the festival, Geoff Macnaughton, Senior Director of Industry & Theatrical, TIFF, said:

”In a time of disruption, professionals from around the world still look for occasions to come together, share innovative ideas, buy and sell content, and find creative ways to collectively forge ahead towards a safer, healthier, and inclusive future. This year, delegates can expect to find community, connection, inspiration, and talent — the foundation that will serve as the way forward.”

The festival is scheduled to kick off from September 10 to September 19 2020
