In the Toronto Star, Roger Ebert is quoted comparing the Toronto International Film Festival to the Cannes fest:

"I think it is really one of the two most important festivals in the world, and probably now THE most important," he said, explaining that the biggest competitor, Cannes, is held just before summer.

"Which is not a season for festival-type films, and Toronto is perfectly well-timed to really act in terms of the North American film industry as the opening day for Oscar season."
