TIFF 2021 starts tomorrow, and I’ve been reflecting on all the years that I’ve been covering Canada’s best festival, and one of the most interesting public festivals in the world.
Black Beauty, a modern day retelling of Anna Sewell’s frequently adapted novel, is a melodrama that the whole family could enjoy with relative ease.
A subtle, yet intensely passionate period love story, Ammonite is the type of film that can tell more with images and glances than most epic novels could manage with thousands of words
Blackbird is an effective, crowd pleasing tear-jerker with a well worn plot that succeeds thanks to great performances and a desire to steer clear of genre cliches whenever possible.

The 45th Toronto International Film Festival is celebrating a lot of change this year, and that includes the launch of the inaugural TIFF Tribute Awards tonight on CTV.

Stars Kate Winslet, Josh Brolin, Gattlin Griffith, and director Jason Reitman walked the red carpet at the Ryerson Theatre on September 8 to talk about their new film Labor Day at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival.
New home releases this week include The Reader, starring Kate Winslet in her Oscar-winning role as Hanna Schmitz; Frank Miller‘s super-stylized comic book adaptation, The Spirit; The Deal, featuring William Macy and Meg Ryan; and Thirteenth Floor on Blu-ray.
From nominees (Kate Winslet, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Mickey Rourke), to celebrities (Alicia Keys and Heidi Klum), the stars came out to shine for a few hours as the red carpet rolled out for the 2009 Academy Awards.
Hollywood’s biggest names converged on the corner of Hollywood and Highland last Sunday, February 22 for the annual Academy Awards at the Kodak Theater. It was another gala extravaganza, and The GATE has a collection of photos of the winners and presenters from backstage at the awards.
After watching the Golden Globes tonight, I couldn’t help but take a few minutes to post something quick, because I feel kind of mesmerized by the results, and what is still to come with the Oscars.
