No talk, just TUFF.

TUFF is open to Canadian and international artists, who are invited to submit work that is of interest to an urban audience. The festival accepts all genres of silent, one-minute film, video and animation and awards thousands of dollars in cash and prizes.
The 2012 guest judge is acclaimed documentary filmmaker Jennifer Baichwal ("Payback", "Manufactured Landscapes" "Let It Come Down: The Life of Paul Bowles"), who will be awarding the top prizes of the 2012 festival.
TUFF is co-produced by Pattison Onestop and Art for Commuters.
