Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) selector, Jane Schoettle, will visit Australia next month. Hosted by Screen Australia, Jane will view new feature films for recommendation into the 2015 festival.

“The energy, diversity and depth of Australian film and filmmakers is always compelling and fascinating, and my annual visit is one of the highlights of my year. TIFF audiences love to see the latest films from a country with which they feel a special kinship,” said Jane, who has been programming for TIFF since 2002 and visiting Australia for TIFF since 2008. Jane is responsible for the territories of Australia, New Zealand, Israel, Germany and USA Independent.
