Tuesday morning, over 60 film titles were announced as official film festival selections for the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival.
According to TIFF,
Starting out in 1976 as a collection of films from other festivals—a “festival of festivals”—the Toronto International Film Festival has become one of the most successful cinematic events in the world, universally regarded as an ideal platform to premiere films.
Boasting a public eager for the best in contemporary film, as well as international attention from media, distributors, producers and buyers along with a galaxy of stars, the Toronto International Film Festival is considered the premiere film festival in North America.
The festival has been described as “the most important film festival in the world – the largest, the most influential, the most inclusive.”
A short 90-mile drive away, the TIFF is definitely an event to check out for any Buffalonian film guru. Tickets for the film festival are now on sale by individual movie or you can get your cinema on and go all out with a package to catch multiple flicks.
For more information on tickets to the screened films, head over to the TIFF Ticketing page.
With A-list celebrities and screenings of some of the most inspiring and creative films in the world, the TIFF is a gem that should be taken full advantage of, being so close to the Queen City. For a full list of the participating films, be sure to check out the film page.
