The work of legendary filmmaker David Cronenberg is to be celebrated with a TIFF film exhibition called the Cronenberg Project. It will showcase different elements of his work and responses to it including academic writing, live performances, TIFF commissioned work, behind-the-scenes footage, and old props and costumes. It will run from November 1, 2013 to January 19, 2014.
On March 7, the Genie Awards will celebrate luminaries in the Canadian film industry with a special event at TIFF Bell Lightbox that brings together nominees for a discussion about their works.
Saturday was one of the better days for me at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, and that’s really the way it usually goes because, for whatever reason, things tend to be front-loaded at TIFF. The first three or maybe even four days pack in more activity than most of the other days combined. While that means I often had to choose between a number of stars in different places, thanks to a decently organized schedule I ended up doing interviews, red carpets, and the chance to be in the presence of the great Stan Lee.
David Cronenberg walked the red carpet at Roy Thomson Hall for his latest film, A Dangerous Method, on Friday, September 10, with his daughter, Caitlin Cronenberg, and three of the stars of the film: Keira Knightley, Viggo Mortensen, and Sarah Gadon.
Take a deep breath and try not to freak out, but in two weeks Toronto is going to play host to some of the people who make geek dreams come true.
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.
