Call for Submissions – TUFF/Trinity Square Video Pitch Award – Deadline May 5th!

Toronto Urban Film Festival (TUFF) is an 8-day long public film festival on the TTC – the only one of
its kind in North America – featuring a different urban-themed program
of 1-minute films each day.

And your 1-minute film could be one of them if you win the TUFF/Trinity Square Video Pitch Award! But apply now – the deadline is Monday, May 5th!!

Here’s how it works:

  1. You send us a blurb about the 1-minute film you want to make (along with some info about yourself).
  2. If we select your idea, Trinity Square Video gives you $600 of in-kind support while you make your film (in Toronto).
  3. You make the great film that you said you were going to make.
  4. It plays as part of TUFF on the TTC and on our Website.
  5. Over 1 million people see it and think you rock.
  6. We pay you $150, and everyone is happy.

Email your short pitch and CV or bio to: or visit for more details. The TUFF festival runs from September 5 – 12,
2008, parallel to the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).
