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. The festival’s carefully curated programme includes a combination of popular and critically-acclaimed feature films alongside local and Canadian short and feature films that allow us to celebrate excellent homegrown talent.

TOPS’ 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 many other parks across Toronto. TOPS was founded by longtime collaborators and dedicated film buffs Emily Reid, Felan Parker, and Nikin Nagewadia.
