Toronto Film Festivals September - December 2008


The fall is quickly approaching, let's take a look at the festival season that will be quickly upon us here in Toronto as the biggest and brightest shine.


Toronto International Film Festival
September 4 - 13/08
The mecca of festivals in Toronto with big name films to genre favourites, celebrities, excitement and lineups galore. This is the biggie and in my heart of heart I will always think of it as the Festival of Festivals but now it is of course known at TIFF to the regulars. It is the one, the only Toronto International Film Festival.

I wish I could go to them all!

I think November will be quite the challenge as so many of them crossover each other.


This is a start-up, new-player-on-the-scene that you might want to check out.

We'll see how it goes.
