The Toronto International Film Festival is the leading public film festival in the world, screening more than 300 films from 60+ countries every September. A diverse array of films are shown: Hollywood galas, complete with red carpet glamour; the best in international cinema, the latest homegrown comedies… and everything in between.
It all started in 1976 as a collection of films from other festivals — a “festival of festivals” — the Toronto International Film Festival has become one of the most successful cinematic events in the world, universally regarded as an ideal platform to premiere films. Boasting a public eager for the best in contemporary film, as well as international attention from media, distributors, producers and buyers along with a galaxy of stars, the Toronto International Film Festival is considered the premiere film festival in North America. The festival has been described as “the most important film festival in the world - the largest, the most influential, the most inclusive.” *
This year’s festival is from September 8th to 18th, 2011.
