As summer dwindles to a close we know that fall is upon us as the Toronto International Film Festival takes aim and lights up screens across the city to celebrate the magic of film. The sky of stars descend on Toronto to showcase the best in cinema from across the globe. The rest of Toronto begins to awaken from the summer slumber to begin the yearly ritual of work that comes with the cooling breeze.
There are many movies to see, many whispers of award winners hanging among the jaded critics and the fans who wait to catch that rare film that will never see the light of day in their local theatre, except during TIFF. School begins for everyone, the new freshman class is ready to grow up and explore the wonders of their new life.
I hear the Master approaches with wonder, that Seven Psychopaths will wander the halls of midnight, Argo will weave Hollywood with the shadow world of spies. The movies are many, there are deals to be done, directors to hear, actors pictures waiting to be snapped and an army of volunteers ready to spill forth across the city.
Welcome to a Toronto, TIFF 12 and some magical days ahead.
