Updates on LIFT Operations – May 2021



May 14, 2021

Dear Members and Community,

Similar to our announcement in March, the Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto will continue to be operating at reduced capacity through the end of June due to the Provincial Emergency and Stay-at-Home Order extended on Thursday May 13.


1. Production equipment rental access and post-production facilities will remain closed through to at least the end of June.

2. All online purchases from the LIFT Store will be suspended until Wednesday, June 2, 2021. We will revisit our options after June 2 to see when LIFT Store online purchases and/or curbside pick-up will be available again.
Details: https://lift.ca/store

3. Registration for the Summer 2021 season of our online filmmaking workshops opens May 18. No workshops are held on LIFT’s premises.

4. General Level memberships can still be purchased online. Upgrading to Production Level and all other levels of memberships are still on hold. At the end of June, we will revisit plans for re-opening membership upgrades and rentals.

For any other additional matters, staff can be reached via email only as they are working from home and not available for phone calls:
