Making a great one-minute film, that’s TUFF!
The Toronto Urban Film Festival (TUFF) is a 10-day public film festival that reaches over 1.3 million daily subway commuters.
TUFF is looking for the best one-minute silent films from across Canada and around the world. Filmmakers, animators and video artists are invited to consider our urban-themed categories:
* Urban Encounters and Other Stories* Our Environment and Urban Growth* The Medium is the Message* Urban Ideas and Politics* Urban Journeys* The City is a Poem* After Night Falls
Over $10,000 in cash and prizes will be awarded to the winning films. Artist fees of $100 will be paid to every film that’s selected by our jury to screen on the TTC and on the TUFF website.
Films are selected by a guest jury, with the top films chosen by a Guest Judge; this year it's Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Deepha Metha (Water, Midnight's Children). The TUFF 2010 Jury includes Min Sook Lee, Jorge Lozano, Kathleen Mullen, Sarah Robayo Sheridan, Haema Sivanesan, and Michael Zryd.
