Key Takeaways:

  • Cameron Bailey has been named Executive Director of the Toronto International Film Festival.
  • TIFF’s board of directors expressed confidence in Bailey’s ability to guide the non-profit organization through an ever-changing industry in announcing the news.

Bailey takes over as CEO after serving as co-head with Joana Vicente, who stepped down on Oct. 31 to become CEO of the Sundance Institute.

Bailey previously worked as TIFF’s artistic director and co-director under former CEO Piers Handling. He began his career as a seasonal film programmer at TIFF in 1990, and he previously worked in the media as a film critic.

TIFF also announced that Jeffrey Remedios, chairman, and CEO of Universal Music Canada, has been named the organization’s new chair of the board. He succeeds Jennifer Tory, who has held the position since 2016.

In a statement issued Tuesday, Remedios praised Bailey’s leadership, saying, “There is no one better suited to drive TIFF forward.”

Leading the cultural organization is “both a joy and an enormous responsibility,” according to Bailey.

“I’m grateful to Toronto International Film Festival’s founders and each of TIFF’s previous leaders for creating an organization dedicated to creating positive change in the world for filmgoers, filmmakers, and all the professionals who make movies matter,” he said in a statement.

TIFF’s endeavours include various events at Toronto International Film Festival Bell Lightbox, a downtown film hub with five cinemas, learning and entertainment facilities, in addition to the September film festival.
