Nick Broomfield, Morgan Spurlock, Ted Hope, Relativity Media CEO Ryan Kavanaugh and Canadian filmmaker Bruce McDonald are among the names taking part in this year's industry programs at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival, it was announced today by the event. The TIFF Industry programs provide sessions with industry professionals and some of the festival's filmmakers to provide networking opportunities for filmmakers.

This year's slate of sessions tackle: How to network while navigating the festival experience; Canadian costume design; international co-producing; the booming Chinese film industry; and crowd-funding. There will also be "Moguls" sessions with "Dark Horse" producer Hope, IM Global's Stuart Ford, and Fortissimo Films' Michael Werner, in addition to a conversation between documentary filmmakers Spurlock and Broomfield. Go here for the full schedule.

Also, the festival will hold a new series, TIFF Nexus. According to the event, Nexus has been designed to "equip a new generation of Ontario storytellers with the network, skills and partners that they need to succeed in a rapidly evolving and growing digital media landscape" with programs that offer the chance for "creative jam sessions" between game designers, electronic hackers, and traditional screen-based artists.

    Run, Sarah run. Sarah Palin was so successful as a governor, she graduated early “Bitter Quitter”, she real is a “Dan Quayle” in heels. She clearly loves “dishing it out” but real can’t take it because she loves playing the victim card, poor thing. She fail as a VP candidate (her lie that her daughter was engaged was such a farce, selling celibacy, come on), her stand-up comic fiasco on the Jay Leno Show, please, her TV show canceled after declining rating, I guess her perpetual run for the White House (and taking the suckers money) is the only thing she can look forward. Didn’t Fake News make that other movie “undeveloped” or “under achiever” or something like that, right? Didn’t it break all box office records, oh yeah it did not, that Alaska dullard can‘t even finish the bus tour to nowhere. But since she is a coward she will only throw small minded rocks, poor thing. Since we already had an idiot “W” in the White House that caused our current economic debacle, America knows not to trust the GOP fools who flaunt the idiocy.
