The 10th annual Toronto Urban Film Festival (TUFF) will bring the best one-minute silent films from around the world to Toronto subway platforms from September 10 – 18, 2016. TUFF launches the 10th anniversary celebrations with TUFF Ten, a special programme in recognition of the festival’s history.
TUFF Ten will take over all 346 PATTISON Onestop digital subway screens, replacing all regular content, from 10:00 am – 4:00pm on Saturday, September 10, 2016. Starting September 11th, TUFF will be seen daily at five-minute intervals from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m., on all subway platform screens across Toronto, entertaining an audience of over 1.2 million daily commuters.
Continuing TUFF traditions for 2016, 6 dedicated PATTISON Onestop subway screens in 3 key stations will present an uninterrupted viewing of TUFF each day, and Too TUFF for the TTC will offer an online program of great films not appropriate for screening in a public transit setting.
Named one of the ‘Coolest Film Festivals’ by MovieMaker Magazine, TUFF is North America’s largest commuter film festival. TUFF pays screening fees of $100 CAD per official selection, and selected films are also eligible for cash prizes and awards, with a top prize of $3,000. Past guest judges include: Patricia Rozema, Guy Maddin, Bruce McDonald, Jennifer Baichwal, Atom Egoyan, and Deepa Mehta.
One Minute. Ten Years. Endless Imagination.
