A total of 36 shorts from filmmakers representing 29 countries will screen in five curated programmes.

“Some of the best filmmaking in the industry is happening in the short form and the introduction of this programme allows the festival to identify talented filmmakers and connect them to the rest of the world as well as the highly engaged audience present here in Toronto,” said Tiff director of special projects Shane Smith.

“From politically and socially provocative narratives, to aesthetically compelling animation and profoundly moving documentaries, the works in Short Cuts International are vigorous and vital films showcasing unique, yet universal, stories about the human condition.”

Short Cuts International is programmed by Smith; Kathleen McInnis, Short Cuts International programmer; and Magali Simard, Short Cuts programmer and Tiff manager Of film programmes.
