Welcome

We're thrilled to announce the inaugural recipients of the JIFF Short Film Fund: Paul Andersen and Anita Lester! Mazeltov! Made possible by generous donations from the Pratt Foundation and an anonymous donor, the two filmmakers will each receive a $5,000 grant to make a short film to premiere at JIFF 2017.

JIFF will be returning in October/November 2017: stay tuned for JIFF Distribution titles releasing in cinemas throughout the year, and catch up on previous titles through our JIFF Video on Demand service.
