Toronto’s streets will be flooded with movie lovers–and movie stars–this September as the 38th Toronto International Film Festival takes over the city from September 5 to 15, and today the festival has announced the full list of filmmakers and celebrities expected for all the red carpet events.
Need a funny reminder why the Toronto International Film Festival needs volunteers to keep the gigantic event running? Look no further than Cineplex, the sponsor of the Volunteer Program at TIFF, who launched this video showing what might happen without the more than 2,000 people who donated their time to this year’s festival.
Opening this week in theatres, John Cusack stars in the farce, Hot Tub Time Machine; Dreamworks goes mythic once more in the animated tale, How to Train Your Dragon; and Atom Egoyan debuts his latest erotic drama, Chloe.

Considered one of the most important film festivals in the world, aside from Cannes, the Toronto International Film Festival has become a force to be respected amongst Hollywood’s elite and the 2002 edition of the “Festival of Festivals” is set to roll through town between September 5th and 14th.
