Tuesday and Wednesday were two of my biggest days at the Toronto International Film Festival, aside from the always epic first Saturday of the festival. Tuesday started out fairly reasonably with writer, director and actor Pat Mills sitting down to discuss his film, Guidance.
I must have blinked because suddenly it’s the third day of the Toronto International Film Festival and this is the first time I’ve had time to write in the blog. I’m also sitting on a day of content that I still need to post, and of course today is also a full day unto itself…
Director Ruba Nadda returns to the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival with her latest film, October Gale, a psychological thriller starring Patricia Clarkson, Scott Speedman and Tim Roth.
Toronto was buzzing today as Piers Handling and Cameron Bailey met with media to talk about the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival, which runs from September 6 to 16.
Opening in a limited number of theatres this week, writer and director Ruba Nadda‘s award-winning film Cairo Time stars Patricia Clarkson as a woman facing love in a strange city. Plus, Vince Vaughn stars in the farcical comedy Couples Retreat, and we take a quick look ahead at films coming later this month.
The Toronto International Film Festival is a tremendous annual event for a lot of different reasons, but one of the best parts of the festival is the chance to meet great Canadian filmmakers who often don’t get the attention they deserve. At this year’s festival, one of my highlights was the opportunity to interview writer and director Ruba Nadda, who was at the festival for her latest feature film, Cairo Time, which stars Patricia Clarkson and Alexander Siddig in a drama about a married woman who finds love while on vacation.
Since my last post I’ve been a bit under the weather, falling victim to my usual film festival cold, but this time it came during TIFF, as opposed to after it. That left the end of the festival a bit of a downer, but I can’t help saying that this was still a fantastic year all the same.
Sunday was a decent day at the festival, but another one of those days where I realized there are just too many great things going on during the Toronto International Film Festival to make anyone feel accomplished. No matter how much I do, I’m missing ten other amazing events.
As my last post confirms, this is indeed my favorite time of year, hands down. That’s because I just got back from the Canadian press conference for the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival, which takes over the city from September 10 to 19. It’s like Christmas for film fanatics like myself, mainly because it gives me a chance to dine on my love of film for ten straight days, and meet a number of cool filmmakers who will be debuting their latest films.
