In this competition celebrating young talent, music and film, six high-school bands perform their own scores of an original short film, kicking off the opening night of the TIFF Next Wave Film Festival.

Friday, February 14 at 7pm

Our cinematic showcase of Toronto's young musical talent returns! After being given three weeks to compose an original score for a short film, six high-school-aged bands will perform their soundtracks live on stage. Winners are determined by audience votes and an esteemed panel of judges from the Toronto music and film communities.

Join us immediately after the Battle for the official TIFF Next Wave Film Festival Opening Night party!
