Toronto International Film Festival Group Receives $500K Donation for Children's Film Collection

The Toronto International Film Festival Group announced the creation of a new children’s international film collection following a $500,000 donation from the Toronto-based Harbinger Foundation. The gift, to be called the John VanDuzer Children’s Film Collection in memory of Harbinger president Joan VanDuzer‘s late husband, is described as “a major step” towards establishing a solid foundation for the development of youth education programs for TIFFG. In recognition of the gift, TIFFG will create an endowment fund to support the yearly acquisition of film prints, education rights, storage, maintenance, cataloging and preparation to be used for events in TIFFG’s planned Festival Centre as well as for outside institutions.
