European Directors In TIFF Spotlight
 Manoel De Oliveira (Portugal) The Toronto International Film Festival has always had a love affair with European cinema and this year, in its 35th anniversary year, is no different. Nearly half of the films presented here this week are European or have European co-production partners. The European Film Promotion organization is assisting nearly 50 European sales companies with their presenc...

French New Wave vs. Republic Pictures
Earlier this year, our fearless founder, Tracey, had the opportunity to meet icon Jean-Paul Belmondo at the L.A. Film Critics awards, and the seed for our 10th Anniversary theme was planted...50 years of French New Wave. Our desire to embody 1960's cool was reinforced by our move to our new venue, CAP Theatre, which already had its own 60's vibe. With Jean-Luc Godard scheduled to receive a Lifeti...

Coppola Wins
Well, one thing you can always guarantee with Tarantino is to expect surprises. I'd have never thought in a million years that he would award Sofia Coppola's 'Somewhere' the top prize at Venice (one wonders if its because she and QT used to date?!!)... but then again maybe its because she has made an amazing film similar to'Lost in Translation'. This film is now top of my to see list alongside th...

Europe Meets Canada In Toronto

TIFF Film In Focus: BEGINNERS
The courage to live one's truth....that is the potent theme of BEGINNERS, an emotional drama that had its world premiere on Saturday evening at the Toronto International Film Festival. American director Mike Mills, who made an assured debut in 2005 with the festival hit THUMBSUCKER handily mixes comedy and tragedy and guides his cast of top flight actors to convincing and moving performances. ...

The Loss Of Innocence At TIFF
Yesterday was September 11th, and again I find myself in the city of Toronto, as I did in 2001......when the planes crashed, the towers fell, the buildings burned and America lost its innocence. It was a very strange place to be back then, in the midst of covering a film festival, while one's city was in chaos. For those of us from New York, there was a shared concern about the loss of loved ...

At the time of going to press, a woman in China has sued a cinema and the distributors of the movie ?Aftershock? for wasting her time with adverts.

Chen, a lawyer, accused the Xian-based pi...

Suzie
Creepy independent low-budget shocker destined to be a cult classic. Violence, suspense, humor, romance and sex, combine to make this one of the most eerie films with all too-real scenes. Warren Matthews is a crazed delusional psycho who falls in love with dolls and murder. Who delights in tying up his victims and chopping off body parts one by one. An intriguing psycho thriller that pushes the bo...
