When is PIFF...
PIFF 2019 was
officially a triumph!
On Saturday, October 5th, we opened the doors of the George Ignatieff Theatre, Toronto to over 250 guests, all excited to see the premier screening of 11 new PIFF films!
Refreshments were provided by The Coffee Shed and live music from Scarboro Music added the perfect touch of ambiance. Nick Herd was our charming emcee and from the stage we could see many of the stars of the movies in the audience.
Guest were sporting their exclusive PIFF t-shirts or buttons and the cheers and claps were bountiful for the wonderful, unique and diverse movies shown that day.
Thank you to everyone who came out to support PIFF, you really made the event the film festival of the year!
You can find some of the films on our PIFF YouTube Channel and pop over to the store to get some exclusive merch!
Bring on PIFF 2020!
Meet Nick Herd!
Nick is our esteemed host for this year's festival.
We're very lucky to have snagged Nick, he's a busy man. As well as performing for this year's Fringe with L'Arche - Sol Express, Nick will be interviewing for TIFF. He also has his own show on The Disability Channel called 'Keeping it Real with Nick'.
As if that wasn't enough, Nick is currently publishing a book with his sister-in-law. My Name Is Sunny. It’s about a 8 year old boy who has Down Syndrome, but who has capability abilities. Sunny is unique and rare, with special gifts like everyone else. The book explores how we are different from each other, but rooted, from the same tree, because each of us is part of all of us, Nick says "We all love the human connection!"
