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 City and Colour, Martha Wainwright, Scott Helman, Donovan Woods, Dear Rouge, Terra Lightfoot and Arkells, the Canadian Music Café is a hub for rising Canadian talent, facilitating connections that lead to song placements in films, television programs and commercials, including Grey’s Anatomy, Degrassi, Castle, Beauty and The Beast, Ugly Betty, The L Word and more.

We will have a contingent of music supervisors from around the world at the 2017 Café. Stay tuned for details!
