Posted on September 5, 2014. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

tiffThe Toronto International Film Festival is an exciting event in Toronto where a number of films from around the world are premiered. Cast and crew of the film are in attendance to discuss the film and answer audience Q&As. You might even bump into your favourite star walking the streets of Toronto. The festival highlights both Hollywood and foreign films. It is a great time to catch some interesting films that may never make it to your local theatre. This year’s festival runs from September 4th – 14th.
