Toronto presents

Main programmer Jason Anderson presents a selection of films from Short Cuts, the short film section in the Toronto International Film Festival programme. Held every year in September, the festival is one of the world's largest and most diverse festivals.

“The Short Cuts team at TIFF has been thrilled to develop such a warm bond with the Norwegian Short Film Festival through its annual collaboration. It’s become a valuable opportunity to provide a point of connection between our festival and so much emerging Nordic talent. It’s also a means of giving further exposure to films we’ve been excited to share and support at TIFF. Such opportunities are surprisingly rare and very treasured, even more so at a time when we’re not able to be present in Grimstad. We are happy to share a few great Canadian shorts – like Vincent Toi’s amazing ANIKSHA and Sophy Romvari’s heartbreaking STILL PROCESSING – and more big favourites from our 2020 program.”
