TIFF ’12 Gallery: ‘Looper’ red carpet with Bruce Willis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Emily Blunt

The first day of the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival has arrived, and as the stars descend on Toronto–while the films begin to unspool and the events kick into full swing–the red carpet premier for director Rian Johnson’s film Looper brought fans to Roy Thomson Hall to catch a glimpse of the filmmakers and celebrities.

Canada at TIFF 2012

Every summer there are two big press conferences held by Cameron Bailey, Steve Gravestock, Piers Handling and the rest of the TIFF team–the second is always reserved for Canada and all things Canadian being featured at the festival. This press conference was, as usual, held at the grand old Imperial Room at the Royal York Hotel, and the crowd was large and enthusiastic and a rough count estimated that there were no less than twenty TV cameras there covering the event.
