WORKSHOP: Industry Meetings
At TQFF 2019, an Industry Representative will be available to take one to one meetings with select producers who have films at various stages of completion to advise on potential film festival strategy and/or answer any distribution questions that producers may have.
TQFF suggests participants bring along any pitch deck material available, such as press kits, or trailers, to discuss with your Industry Rep at the meeting.
ABOUT THE INDUSTRY REP
Jordan Mattos is a New York-based film distributor with over 10 years of experience in selling independent films from the international film festival circuit in the US market. Each year he participates in the markets of Berlinale, Cannes, Locarno and New York to scout for films at the work in progress, final cut or finished stage that can be introduced to programmers and buyers worldwide. His specialty is politically engaged, radical films with a visually arresting style and bold, energetic and entertaining pacing. Jordan is currently the US representative for the Venice Film Festival’s Settimana Internazionale della Critica, or Critics Week, organized by the Italian Association of Film Critics, which selects 7-8 feature films to world premiere each year. For Venice, Jordan scouts for the best North American feature films which can be showcased at the festival the following year. He also serves as the head of acquisitions for Indiepix Films, a home video and streaming distributor of art house feature films, and the US buyer for Spamflix, a new service focused on horror, sci-fi, and fantasy films, where he hopes to curate more LGBTQ-friendly content. His sales company, Aspect Ratio, can be visited at
All TQFF events are “pay what you can” and are wheelchair accessible. All screenings will be closed-captioned and/or ASL-interpreted. Both of our locations will have a prearranged waiting area with seating for audience members who need it prior to the doors opening for every event.
Both venues have gender neutral washrooms.
Please contact us if you have any additional accessibility-related inquiries, requests, or needs.

The Toronto Queer Film Festival is a volunteer-run, artist-centered festival that is entirely supported by arts council grants and donations (no corporate sponsorships). There are no submission fees for filmmakers to apply, all events are pay what you can/no one turned away, all screenings are captioned and ASL interpreted, and proceeds from the festival are prioritized to pay artists.
We can’t do all of this without your support. Currently TQFF is reliant on community donations to reach our goals as well as to make the festival happen. Please consider becoming a supporter today to receive benefits and to help us continue to build a diverse and representative platform for queer and trans artists in Canada.
