TIFF: The Final Day

19 09 2010

Last day of TIFF!

Say your farewells…adieus, and ‘until next years’ – the festival is rolling back the red carpets today.

We saw the birth of the Film Holy- Place, Cinema Chapel even… the TIFF Bell Lightbox was definitely a highlight of the festival, and perhaps even an icon that will put Toronto’s film community on the map (for keeps…) With the Church of Film, we are telling the world that we are in it for the future. We may not be the powerhouse country of movie-making, but we appreciate cinema and have a vested itneresting in it’s modern history and the evolutions in the future. Peter Howell of The Star said it best… it’s a statement in a time of endless sequels and cats-on-skateboards on YouTube.  – a statement I am proud to make vocal to the rest of the international film community.

The Art of Cinema is here to stay…here…in Toronto.

I will post a full photo wrap up, and a summary/commentary on the highs and lows of this years festival tomorrow.

Today, I am off to see one last film before the 10-day extravaganza concludes. You should take advantage of a final day – but remember, the Lightbox is ours to keep! Let’s make sure we celebrate film all-year round, in our very own concert hall for cinema!

Sure, the celebs get to retreat to their homes in the hollywood hills…but one thing they cant take from us, is permanently sitting at King and John. Toronto. Canada.
