The occasion, hosted by Canadian TV presenters Chloe Wilde and Tyrone Edwards, was kicked off by Martin Scorsese. According to the competition web site, the awards honour “the movie trade’s excellent contributors and their achievements, recognising directing trade members, appearing expertise, directorial experience, new expertise, and a below-the-line artist and creator.”

“We can never remind people enough that this remarkable art form has always been and always will be much more than a diversion. Cinema, film, movies at its best, is a source of wonder and inspiration.” —Wise phrases from #TIFF20 Ambassador Martin Scorsese. pic.twitter.com/ziIPIdZcqg

Ava DuVernay, Tabu, Regina King, Jodie Foster, Olivia Colman, Colin Farrell, and Delroy Lindo had been among the many digital award presenters. 

IndieWire notes that TIFF has typically helped launch potential Oscar contenders. In 2019, the first-ever instalment of the awards occasion had honoured Taika Waititi (Jojo Rabbit) and Joaquin Phoenix (The Joker).

Kate Winslet (Ammonite) and Sir Anthony Hopkins (The Father) had been the recipients of the TIFF Tribute Actor Award.

Directed by Francis Lee, Ammonite follows an unlikely romance between a palaeontologist Mary Anning (Winslet) and a wealthy vacationer (Saoirse Ronan) recuperating from a private tragedy. Billed as a heartfelt love-story and an examination of gender, class and society, the movie brings to life in vivid element the lifetime of a girl unappreciated in her personal time.

Meanwhile, The Father will see Hopkins and Colman as a father-daughter duo who battle the common prophecy of reminiscence loss that comes with age.

Golden Lion-winner Chloe Zhao (Nomadland) was given the TIFF Ebert Director Award. “When I first entered this trade, I believed this place was very aggressive, and it’s. And I believed if I failed, everybody would abandon me. But as I’ve performed with completely different filmmakers, I really feel extremely fortunate that the people I work with are there when I’m succeeding, and much more after I fail. So I’d wish to share this with them,” she stated in her acceptance speech, writes The Hollywood Reporter.

Mira Nair was introduced with Jeff Skoll Award in Impact Media. Her sequence A Suitable Boy, an adaptation of Vikram Seth’s eponymous novel, will shut the competition on 19 September.
