The city is just buzzing as the Film Festival draws close. Now, the official schedule is out and we know that TIFF is just around the corner.
This year, there are more than 350 films, the vast majority of them premieres. As always, there are tons of great documentaries, along with the feature films.
The Festival says it gets more than 300,000 people through the turnstiles every year. That's a great economic boost to the city. However, what's more important is the boost that TIFF gives to our city's profile and reputation around the globe. This is one of the most important film festivals in the world now, and it demonstrates what a sophisticated and creative city Toronto has become.
