TORONTO, Sept. 5, 2012 /CNW/ - RBC and the Toronto International Film Festival® today announced the winners of the 2012 RBC Emerging Filmmakers Competition.

Additionally, Canadians from coast to coast had the opportunity to participate by viewing the five finalist's films online and voting for the Fan Favourite Award.

"These talented filmmakers submitted thoughtful films with unique treatment of the theme," said Piers Handling, director and CEO, TIFF. "Talent Lab is an integral element of our TIFF Industry programming. The Emerging Filmmaker's Competition is a natural extension of that initiative.
