Toronto International Film Festival Group
OMDC supports specific initiatives of the Toronto International Film Festival Group (TIFF), providing funding for the operation of TIFF and Cinematheque Ontario; and project support to the OMDC Sales Office during both the Film Festival and the Film Circuit (an association of film groups that screen films in 120 cities across Canada, including 71 locations in Ontario). A charitable cultural organization, with a mandate to cultivate an appreciation and understanding of film and the moving image, TIFF is widely recognized as one of the most important film festivals – as well as the most successful public film festival – in the world. Cinematheque Ontario, which screens almost 400 films throughout the year, is the custodian of the Provincial Film Collection and together with the curatorial work of the Film Reference Library, creates a centre for English-language film research.
