The 43rd annual Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) took place from September 6 to 16, 2018. In June 2018, the TIFF organizers announced a program to ensure that at least 20 percent of all film critics and journalists given press accreditation to the festival are members of underrepresented groups, such as women and people of color.[1] The People's Choice Award was won by Green Book, directed by Peter Farrelly.[2]
