The elaborate three-story facility—which boasts stunning views of Toronto and Lake Ontario throughout—has been designated as the official post facility of the 39th annual Toronto International Film Festival. TIFF runs from Sept. 4 to Sept. 14.
The new 62,000-square-foot facility is located in the city’s Liberty Village neighborhood.
“With this fabulous and sophisticated new facility, we are proud to extend Deluxe’s legacy of service to filmmakers throughout Canada and around the world,” said Cyril Drabinsky, president and CEO of Deluxe Entertainment Services.

The facility also features an array of additional film, TV and commercial offerings, including a wide range of ad services, dailies solutions, on-set and near-set services, and innovative solutions for asset management, storage and archiving.
Content creators in all entertainment segments already have begun to use the facility, as they continue to rely on Deluxe’s unmatched menu of end-to-end solutions, while some 85% of the content handled by Canadian distributors uses Deluxe’s storage and management services.
