TORONTO — Royal Bank of Canada and the Toronto Intl. Film Festival Group have inked a 10-year agreement, making RBC the official bank as well as a major sponsor of the fest, it was announced Thursday.

Financial terms of the deal are not yet public.

In addition to funding cinema educational programs at the RBC Learning Studio in TIFF’s new headquarters, Bell Lightbox (currently under construction), RBC will support the new Emerging Talent Bursary supporting the participation of Canadian filmmakers in TIFFG industry programs.
