The 8th annual Toronto Black Film Festival (TBFF), presented by TD Bank in collaboration with Global News, announces the official program and events lineup running February 12 – 17, 2020.

The Toronto Black Film Festival is honoured to present SPIKE LEE, Cannes Film Festival’s first Black Jury President, with the Toronto Black Film Festival’s 2020 Lifetime Achievement Award during an intimate evening where festivalgoers can watch a restored version of his film BAMBOOZLED and hear the Academy Award winning director discuss his journey as a filmmaker as well as his views on today’s socio-economic environment.

#TBFF20 will present 9 World Premieres, 5 International Premieres, 1 North-American premiere, 20 Canadian Premieres and 34 Ontario Premieres. #TBFF20, Canada’s largest celebration of Black History Month through films and more, showcases over 75 films from 20 countries, including Jamaica, Germany, Brazil, South Africa, Ghana, Nigeria, Canada, USA, Kenya, UK, Trinidad & Tobago, France, Namibia, Italy and more.

Created by the Fabienne Colas Foundation, the Toronto Black Film Festival promotes diversity off and on screen and gives minorities a voice. Part of TD’s 2020 Black History Month Series, #TBFF20 will kick off with Maximilian Carlson’s PRINCESS OF THE ROW and will close with Bernard Attal’s RESTLESS (Sem Descanso). One of the highlights is an initiative from The Fabienne Colas Foundation’s Youth & Diversity Program: Being Black in Canada. Fifteen emerging Black Canadian filmmakers (18-30 years old), from Toronto, Montreal and Halifax, will screen their 15 short documentary films produced through the program – as Ontario Premieres. This edition’s Centrepiece films include Angus Gibson’s BACK OF THE MOON and Paxton Winters’ PACIFIED (Pacificado).

The TBFF Kids Film Festival will return on Family Day (Feb. 17) with a variety of films, storytelling and workshops. TBFF is thrilled to be hosting a Movie-Talk with two-time NFL Super Bowl Champion, Malcolm Jenkins of the Philadelphia Eagles following the screening of Sandra Lowman’s documentary feature, BLACK BOYS. Industry events will take place as part of TBFF Black Market which includes a Panel Discussion and Masterclass with filmmakers. Finally, Festivalgoers can cap off their day with the #TBFF20 late night live performances.

The 8th annual Toronto Black Film Festival, created by the Fabienne Colas Foundation, is presented by TD Bank in collaboration with Global News – from February 12 to 17, 2020 – At Isabel Bader Theatre, Carlton Cinema, Jackman Hall (AGO), Queen Elisabeth Theatre and Upper Deck by Fran’s.
