tiff 2015

Now you can watch TIFF 2015 movies from your home

Ever wished you could avoid the TIFF crowds and traffic, and instead just watch the festival's films in the comfort of your own home? Well, this year the festival is making that possible.

For the first time ever, TIFF is making some of its short films available to stream online through an initiative called Short Cuts Remix. For 24-hours on September 16th, no matter where you are, you can log-in to watch a curated list of nine shorts films that are playing at the festival this year.

The included shorts are: Boxing, The Ballad of Immortal Joe, Deszcz (Rain), Kokom, Dream the Other, Bacon & God's Wrath, El Adios, The Call and That Dog.

There will also be an exclusive roundtable Q&A with all the directors of the film as well.

Admittedly, if you were hoping to have the chance to see bigger films like The Martian or Where to Invade Next, Short Cuts Remix might seem like a bit of a letdown. But shorts films deserve love too. What's more, TIFF is calling this an experiment, so if it proves successful for them it could mean the festival might one day allow you to stream feature films too.

In the mean time, tickets for Short Cuts Remix are currently on sale for $10 over at Vimeo, but you'll want to get them quick as there are only 500 slots available.
