Diving further into the section’s focus is the infiniTIFF Summit, a half-day conference focusing on the interaction of film, storytelling and technology. Lead by insightful keynotes, the conference will inspire the audience to explore interdisciplinary collaboration and to rethink the future of film production, distribution, and experience.

With so many individuals brought together to celebrate and anticipate the new directions in film creation and collaboration, infiniTIFF provides the ideal environment to network, create, and collaborate through a combined passion for the future of storytelling.
