TIFF Next Wave is proud to present this selection of coming-of-age movies. These diverse films, ranging from queer to POC stories, exemplify our vision of representation while also being some of our favourite films about youth. Love, heartbreak, and growing up has never felt so real on screen. These movies are dedicated to showing the strong emotional complexity of teenagers and providing an entertaining, beautiful experience for everyone to enjoy. We hope they make you laugh, cry, and learn.
