iW NEWS | Toronto Breaks Ground for Festival Centre

By Indiewire | Indiewire April 23, 2007 at 12:42PM

Actors Don McKellar and Sook-Yin Lee were among the guests on hand for a groundbreaking ceremony for the Toronto International Film Festival Group's Bell Festival Centre held at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel in Toronto. Bell Festival Centre, a placeholder name for TIFFG's new project, is described by the group, which organizes the annual Toronto fest in September as "a landmark destination dedicated to leading the world in creative and cultural discovery through the moving image, and an essential meeting place for film industry professionals, educators, and film-lovers." "The shovels are in the ground, the tractors are running, the hoarding is up and we're digging the foundation," said Piers Handling, Director and CEO of the Toronto International Film Festival Group. "What is now a hole in the ground will over the next few years become the world's preeminent destination dedicated to the culture of the moving image..." The official name of the building will be unveiled in late Summer 2007. [Brian Brooks]
