“We created this new programme as a way to sharpen our focus on artistically ambitious cinema in our 40th year, and we are thrilled to be able to put the spotlight on these 12 brilliant filmmakers this September,” said Piers Handling, director and CEO of TIFF. “They are major creative forces: the next generation of masters whose personal vision will captivate audiences, industry members and media from around the world.” 

TIFF artistic director Cameron Bailey said, “Each of the filmmakers in the programme fearlessly transforms a wide range of compelling realities through their unique visual and narrative styles, and they do so with incredible command and precision.”
