TIFF at Baycrest
TIFF’s REEL COMFORT program at Baycrest
The REEL COMFORT program is facilitated by TIFF and reaches out to patients in Mental Health/Psychiatric Units and Hospitals. The program provides engagement, entertainment and education to patients, staff, and students through film presentations, special guest visits, discussions, and film craft workshops.
Film is used as a ‘departure point’ for reflection and dialogue; it assists in exploring the lived experience of mental health and mental illness, and facilitates self-awareness, personal growth, and social connection.
