TIFF's Essential 100 "represents the merging of one 100 film list as determined by an expert panel of TIFF curators with one 100 film list as determined by TIFF stakeholders."

This is the expert panel's list, compiled by five TIFF curators in 2009. Their goal was to create a list of "essential cinema" that balanced "best" and "most influential," with a limit of one film per director.
