TIFF Rising Stars showcases new Canadian and International acting talent at the Toronto International Film Festival. The programme puts the emphasis on the next generation of actors poised for international success. Launched in 2011, TIFF Rising Stars draws homegrown talent into the spotlight provided by the annual September Festival. Last year, the programme expanded to include international talent from all over the world.

TIFF Rising Stars immerses our chosen actors in a series of public events and private industry meetings during the Festival. They undertake intensive professional development with international casting directors, filmmakers, producers and development executives and benefit from increased exposure in the press. Moreover, the Stars will be front row centre at some of the biggest red-carpet screenings and events at the Festival.

Conducted over four exciting days during the festival (September 7-10, 2018), TIFF Rising Stars is part of our ongoing commitment to promoting young Canadian and International cinema and talent on the world stage.
