Why did TJFF launch a ‘give-back’ initiative?

At this time when we are all looking for ways to stay connected, while also doing our part to keep ourselves and one another healthy and safe, the Toronto Jewish Film Foundation is happy to announce new plans for bringing you the 28th Toronto Jewish Film Festival. We have been able to create a way for our festival community to reunite to support and celebrate Jewish-content film and filmmakers with the TJFF2020 Online Festival and we hope that you will join us!

This is new for all of us, and we understand that you will have questions.  We have tried to anticipate some of them here. For all other queries, please reach out to us at
