Representation at Toronto International Film Festival

This year we are inviting our Intermediate and Professional Members to submit projects for us to represent at the TIFF 2019. We will be meeting with sales agents, producers and VOD platforms to find the perfect match for your projects.   We will be selecting 10 projects over the next coming months.

What's in store for successful applicants?

Successful projects chosen by the Lift-Off Team will be represented at TIFF 2019. We will be meeting with over 50 sales agents, producers, and VOD platforms. Through our film festivals, we see hundreds of incredibly talented filmmakers who's work isn't seen beyond the festival circuit. This needs to change. Our aim is to build bridges between talented filmmakers and industry professionals to create relationships that can benefit both parties.

This is an effort which will go beyond just our TIFF initiative. We will also be running a similar application process for Mipcom, the American Film Market (AFM), later in the year and for  Sundance and the European Film Market (Berlinale) next year. Again, this will be open to all Intermediate and Professional Network Members.

If you are unsuccessful for this selection, you will have the opportunity to apply again for future film markets as well as receiving other benefits of the Lift-Off Network.

What do we need from you?

At this stage an application will suffice, including a brief synopsis of the project. Any necessary links can be provided. We will be in touch closer to the time if we feel your work aligns with what awe can take to the Market this year.

Applications are now open for representation!

Submissions are open for all Intermediate and Professional Network Members. Follow the link below to apply.


Final deadline for applications 22nd August 2019. If you have already applied but have not yet heard back from us, don’t worry. Your application is being processed and you will be notified in due course.
