Toronto Outdoor Picture Show (TOPS) is 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 with plans to expand into more Toronto neighbourhoods. TOPS was founded by longtime collaborators and dedicated film buffs Emily Reid, Felan Parker, and Nikin Nagewadia.
