In the Spotlight today is the 21st Annual TIFF Kids International Film Festival(TIFF Kids), celebrating over two decades as one of the world's most important cinematic events for film lovers aged 3 to 13. TIFF Kids has helped inspire and empower tens of thousands of children through the discovery of film, its craft and the power of storytelling. Last year the festival featured a compelling lineup of over 160 films - 33 feature films and over 125 short films, representing over 40 countries - to more than 30,000 people. The festival features the best of Canadian and international cinema, off-screen fun and special events planned to encourage children to express their creativity.

Three Young People's Juries select the best film presented in their age category. In addition, a jury of industry professionals presents two awards for best live-action and animated short film.

The 2018 TIFF Kids International Film Festival will include but not be limited to the following programmes: Reel Rascals, Special Presentations, Short Film Programme, Feature Film Programme, and an Educational Programme that allows teachers and students to delve further into the themes explored in the films presented at the festival. Films are selected on the basis of quality and originality and preference will be given to films not previously screened at a festival in Canada.
