Toronto International Film Festival | TIFF 2013
As any good Indie/Holllywood filmmaker should know, the Toronto International Film Festival is an incredibly important event in the world of cinema. As the summer blockbusters wind down, TIFF works as a solid launching pad for fall release, big budget and independent alike. If successful, good press garnered at TIFF vitalizes a film’s momentum into awards season. Here’s a preview/guide to TIFF 2013.
When: Sept. 5th– 13th 2013 (Thursday through following Friday)
Registration: Visit TIFF’s official website to learn more about specific passes (Industry Pass, Conference Pass, etc.). Early Bird registration ends June 12.
Where: Toronto, Ontario Canada.
For a great interactive map of the ten venues, check out the Locations tab on the TIFF website.
Don’t go in unprepared! Here’s a great list of 51 Hot Spots come September:
Programmes: From mainstream movies such as Looper (Director: Rian Johnson) to independent/art cinema, Laurence Anyways (Director: Xavier Dolan), 2012 saw some incredible films. With just announced film Visitors by renowned Koyaanisqatsi director Godfrey Reggio, featuring a score by Philip Glass, 2013 promises to be no different. Also, notable directors and actors such as Paul Thomas Anderson and Ryan Gosling have new projects in production; it should be interesting to see what is ready in time for the festival.
How are they chosen? This year, the eighteen programmers that chose the films represent six continents.
Awards: Last year ten films received awards, including Silver Linings Playbook (Directed by David O. Russell) that won BlackBerry People’s Choice Award.
17 Progammes: Seventeen different programmes will make up the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival.

Can’t stand the wait? Luckily, TIFF offers year round events and screenings. If you find yourself in Toronto before September, make sure you allow some time to see a film from their summer series A Century of Chinese Cinema with many films including a special introduction. In addition, many other films are released or screened through tiff. all summer long.
