The TIFF Next Wave Talent Lab is a series of interactive workshops open to emerging filmmakers ages 14 through 18 that will provide hands-on demonstrations and tips on technical, story, and production elements of filmmaking from industry professionals and filmmakers.

The next session takes place on Saturday, February 15 from 10am – 2:30pm, and includes screenings, Q&As, networking opportunities and a fast-paced talent incubator. The day's events will be facilitated by a dynamic host who will kick-off the Lab, guide the participants through various sessions, and sum up the day's programme.

Talent Incubator

The Lab host guides the participants through a series of fast-paced workshops. Each workshop is designed to give young filmmakers a chance to interact with visiting or local talent, complete a small creative exercise, and critique their peers' work, among other activities. These sessions are very hands-on introductory experiences in which participants acquire valuable skills and feedback from each other and the industry professionals.

Tickets are now available at a price of $40 plus any applicable fees. Please note that for every team that registers for the TIFF Next Wave 24-Hour Film Challenge, up to three participants can register for the TIFF Next Wave Talent Lab free of charge.
