The Toronto International Film Festival [TIFF] is one of the largest publicly attended film festivals in the world, attracting over 480,000 people annually.

Founded in 1976, TIFF is now one of the most prestigious events of its kind in the world. The Toronto International Film Festival is a charitable cultural organization with a mission to transform the way people see the world, through film.

Johnny Ma, a Chinese/Canadian director won the City of Toronto Award for Best Canadian First Feature Film (Old Stone, Lao Shi).The jury remarked, “For its remarkably mature, powerfully rendered portrait of an innocent taxi driver caught in a proto-capitalist China, the jury is pleased to select Old Stone.” This award carries a cash prize of $15,000, made possible by the City of Toronto.
