About the 2022 Toronto International Film Festival
This year, TIFF22 is back to mostly in-person only screenings, though a handful of acquisition titles will screen digitally across Canada. 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 still very high COVID-19 case count (higher than during any previous edition of the festival) in Ontario and the total lack of airborne spread precautions required by Ontario Public Health or implemented by TIFF. We will be scouting for the best under-the-radar films by international and emerging filmmaking.
