The Toronto Jewish Film Festival (TJFF) made its debut in 1993 under Artistic Director, Helen Zukerman. The TJFF proved to be a creative and exciting way to introduce people in the city and surrounding areas to Jewish culture, and explain how it fits within the city of Toronto. The foundation set out to be a showcase of the diversity in Jewish life and cultural experiences around the world. The TJFF’s has expanded its use of venues in an attempt to be as inclusive and inviting as possible, and to appeal to a broader demographic. An additional goal of the foundation is to expose the non-Jewish community to the multiculturalism and diversity of Jewish life globally. The TJFF plans strategies to overcome the barriers to attendance amongst the non-Jewish population and the younger secular Jewish population, allowing them to feel connected and comfortable in the unique festival and year-round screening environments.

Welcome to La Guarida, an opportunity to travel in time in a place that respects tradition but also bets on the future. An authentic space for those interested in getting to know the real Cuba and immersing themselves in our culture, customs, and way of doing things.
Everything started with a movie. Strawberries and Chocolate, the first, and as of now only, Cuban film nominated for an Oscar (in 1994), motivated many travelers to come to Cuba to experience the reality behind the fiction. They came with the idea of experiencing the places they’d seen in the film and to enjoy the Cuba that seduced its protagonists.
The film’s directors Tomas Gutiérrez Alea and Juan Carlos Tabio had decided to use our home as La Guarida de Diego, or The Den of Diego, the protagonist of the movie who sent the world a message against intolerance. In 1996, after the filming of this famous movie, we decided to take on the adventure of transforming our home into what the world knows today as Paladar La Guarida.
