Toronto Outdoor Picture Show (TOPS) is a local not-for-profit organization dedicated to bringing high quality, diverse, and engaging outdoor film programming to communities across the city.

Its signature project, Christie Pits Film Festival (CPFF), was originally founded as a two-night event in 2011 and grew rapidly, becoming a cornerstone of west end Toronto’s summer calendar. In January 2015, following four successful seasons of CPFF, the organization incorporated as the umbrella non-profit Toronto Outdoor Picture Show and has since presented excellent film programming in three other Toronto parks - with more to come! TOPS was founded by longtime collaborators and dedicated film buffs Emily Reid, Felan Parker, and Nikin Nagewadia.
