About the 2021 Toronto International Film Festival
This year, TIFF21 is a hybrid of in-person and digital screenings. At Seventh Row, we’ll be covering the festival digitally as we do not believe it is safe to attend in-person screenings in Toronto given the exponential rise in COVID-19 cases in Ontario and the lack of airborne spread precautions required by Ontario Public Health. We will be scouting for the best under-the-radar films by international and emerging filmmaking, as well as covering buzzed-about titles like Benediction and The Power of the Dog.
The latest from the festival
Here you’ll find our reviews of the best and most buzzed-about films at TIFF21, interviews with emerging filmmakers, and features on the festival. Keep an eye out for our coverage of the best acquisition titles at the festival as these are films without distribution and thus aren’t guaranteed to be available to see later!
