Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto (LIFT)

The Liai­son of Inde­pen­dent Film­mak­ers of Toron­to (LIFT) is an artist-run char­i­ta­ble orga­ni­za­tion ded­i­cated to facil­i­tat­ing excel­lence in the mov­ing image through media arts edu­ca­tion and pro­duc­tion resources. LIFT exists to pro­vide sup­port and encour­age­ment for inde­pen­dent film­mak­ers and artists through afford­able access to pro­duc­tion, post-pro­duc­tion and exhi­bi­tion equip­ment; pro­fes­sional and cre­ative devel­op­ment; work­shops and cours­es; com­mis­sion­ing and exhi­bi­tions; artist-res­i­den­cies; and a vari­ety of oth­er ser­vices. Found­ed in 1981 by a small col­lec­tive, LIFT has since grown to become one of the fore­most cen­tres of its kind glob­al­ly.
