Creator(s): Toronto International Film Festival
The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) is committed to mentor post-secondary students in films and media and collaborate with their faculty and associated emerging practitioners. In 2010 we launched Higher Learning, a programme that provides opportunities for scholars and practitioners to interact with each other and the broader media arts communities. We also provide access to our events and educational programming beyond the walls of TIFF Bell Lightbox through an online platform, the Higher Learning Digital Resource Hub.
The Cronenberg Project offered an opportunity to build on these initiatives by creating an in-depth resource-a virtual exhibition where we could showcase the breadth of our Cronenberg collection. The result is David Cronenberg: Virtual Exhibition, an online complement to David Cronenberg: Evolution that showcases artefacts and photographs from Cronenberg's films, includes new scholarship and interviews with his past and present collaborators, has interactive features including a career timeline and map, and access to rare behind-the-scenes footage.
