    Toronto and the Fall Market Season Begins (The Real Rights List)

    Now that everyone has listed the new titles announced for Toronto, Venice and San Sebastian, Locarno is over, Rome is waiting in the wings, and Telluride has finally told, I would like to do a survey of some films' sales' stats. IM Global is treating Toronto as an all-out market. The sales agents as well as the publicists are positioning their films via email to the trade. I just saw White Wedding by Jann Turner ♀ which is being sold in the "market" as well by The Little Film Company and its positive review in L.A. Times. It is very timely and enjoyable, at the same time touches ever more present issues of race and equality, this time in South Africa. On the infamous September 11 at 2pm I will be interviewing Bob Berney in TIFF's Meet the Mogul session at the Filmmakers Lounge. I hope you will come to see and hear what Bob has to say about the business. I’m sure we are all eager to know what is up with him as well, though he still might not be saying. Bob Berney

    indieWIRE's Interactive Map to Eating, Drinking, and Shopping in Toronto

    Tomorrow morning, indieWIRE will publish our annual "insider's guide" to the best places to eat, drink, shop and chill in Toronto... which keeps in mind TIFF's new digs at the Bell Lightbox and the resulting migration south. As a supplement, I've also put together this handy interactive map that lists all the restaurants, bars, stores and etcs that are included in the guide. So check back with indieWIRE tomorrow for the guide (complete with snappy commentary from a variety of Torontonians), and then come back here to figure out how to make the best of any free time you might be lucky enough to have during TIFF.

    Spout's Fall Movie Preview - Part 2

    Here is the second half of our Fall Movie Preview, highlighting the season's most anticipated studio offerings as well as a number of indie titles expected to receive successful wide releases in the months of November and December. The first section, which looked at films opening in September and October, was a little easier to pilfer through, whereas the closer we get to the new year the more crowded the calendar is and will be with Oscar hopefuls. The big holidays also typically feature a surge of big budget family entertainment like the new installments of the "Harry Potter" and "Chronicles of Narnia" franchises and broad comedies like "Little Fockers" and "Gulliver's Travels," which were a little easier to exclude without regret.

    Spout's Fall Movie Preview - Part 1

    The crop of summer movies this year were more lackluster than blockbuster. But September is upon us and with it comes the fall film season, a time for Oscar bait and festival favorites and -- at least in 2010 -- more exciting sequels, remakes (such as "Let Me In," pictured above) and 3D, sci-fi and fantasy films than those of the prior frame. It almost makes sense that "Machete," the most satisfying kind of action fluff, which in many ways is also the smartest blockbuster of the year so far (not that it's been hard), arrived in the transitional weekend of Labor Day. It closes out one season with a bang (and a lot of stabbing and slicing) and opens another with a semblance of grown-up debate.
