Founded in 2017, Toronto New Wave is a not-for-profit organization with the aim of cultivating Toronto’s emerging arts scene through an annual summer festival event and year-round content development.

The festival showcases the best work from emerging filmmakers, musicians, and interactive media artists (VR, AR, etc.), as well as select international pieces, and caters to the increasingly diverse audiences in Toronto.

The organization also pushes to promote local artists outside of the main festival event through regular content such as blog posts and video pieces.
