Toronto 2012 Buyers' Guide: Who's Selling the Hot Titles, and Who May Be Buying

The Toronto International Film Festival is unique among film festivals in its grand scope. With its broad mix of civilian audiences, distribution execs, sales agents, producers, press and filmmakers, Toronto fully exploits its early-September slot and enormous program as an event for everyone: launch promotion for a wide-release campaign, stock up on foreign pre-sales, earn critical momentum for an awards run, try out a new cut of a movie, start buzz among regular moviegoers, whatever. Unlike the other major festivals, it’s a wide-ranging bazaar for showcasing every kind of movie at any stage of development.
