Canadian Music Cafe at TIFF
- By Amsa Yaro
Returning for its tenth year this September, the Canadian Music Café capitalizes on the international attention placed on Toronto during the Toronto International Film Festival® to bring the very best in new Canadian music to the ears of film and television music supervisors and the filmed media community gathering at TIFF.
With alumni such as Lido Pimienta, Lowell, Kroy, JP Saxe, City and Colour, Hannah Georgas, Rose Cousins, Charlotte Cardin, Doomsquad, Martha Wainwright, Scott Helman and Dear Rouge, the Canadian Music Café has consistently been a launch pad for rising Canadian talent, facilitating connections that lead to song placements in films, television programs and commercials, including The Bold Type, Grey’s Anatomy, Kiss & Cry, Reign, Mary Kills People, Are You The One?, Degrassi, Castle, Beauty and The Beast, Ugly Betty, The L Word and more.
The 2018 edition of the Canadian Music Café takes place September 10th and 11th in the heart of downtown Toronto (venue to be announced soon). Canadian artists are encouraged to apply for showcase consideration: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CanadianMusicCafe2018
