TIFF’s Geddes Gets Some Action

TIFF's Geddes Gets Some Action

Toronto’s Midnight Madness programmer Colin Geddes has been named Festival Director for Asheville, NC’s ActionFest, the first and only fest dedicated to the action genre. In commenting on his new position, Geddes, who will continue his TIFF duties, noted, “Our plan for next year is to knock people’s notions of what film festivals are right off their shoulders with a cinematic roundhouse kick, and then blow them up for good measure.” Fresh from its inaugural edition’s success last month, the 2nd annual ActionFest announced the dates for its second edition: April 7-10, 2011.
