New this year is the TIFF Talent Accelerator, a customized, year-long development experience for promising Canadian female creators. The inaugural class of six, includes two directors, two producers, and two writers benefitting from other industry support programmes.
TIFF Talent Accelerator is made possible by Share Her Journey, their successful fundraising initiative committed to increasing participation, skills, and opportunities for women on both sides of the camera.
This years TIFF Talent Accelerator beneficiaries are Karen Chapman, Sofia Bohdanowicz, Melissa Coghlan, Lisa Jackson, Jasmin Mozaffari, and Shasha Nakhai.
The 44th Toronto International Film Festival runs from September 5th - 15th, 2019. Click here for more information.
(Am I the only one wondering why they didn't name this the TIFF Talent Accelerate-Her program? Maybe. Maybe not.)
