Take part in the North America’s largest commuter film festival. The 9th annual Toronto Urban Film Festival (TUFF) returns to subway screens across Toronto from September 12 to 20, 2015.
TUFF accepts all genres of silent, 60-second film, video, and animation of interest to an urban audience. Films screen at 5-minute intervals on 300 digital platform screens across the Toronto subway system and non-stop at a special "Film Zone" station downtown. The audience includes over one million commuters who take the Toronto subway daily.
Now in its second year, “TUFF Local Stories” will appear on digital screens in over 40 shopping centres across Canada. “TUFF Local Stories” will feature film/video/animation by Canadians that explore, critique, or show their love for their own hometowns.
Thousands of dollars in cash and prizes will be awarded, including a $2,500 cash reward to the winner of the Naish McHugh Award for emerging GTA filmmakers, presented by the City of Toronto. Past guest judges have included celebrated Canadian filmmakers Guy Maddin, Jennifer Baichwal, Atom Egoyan, and Deepa Mehta.
Free until: May 31st
Paid Submission: $20 CAD as of June 1st
Final Deadline: June 30, 2015
TUFF is produced by PATTISON Onestop and Art for Commuters, with support from NBCUniversal Canada.
