TIFF 2010 | Rounding Up the Coverage

The 2010 Toronto International Film Festival has come to a close with the announcement of Tom Hooper’s “The King’s Speech” as the festival’s audience award . In the twelve days and nights leading up to that conclusion, indieWIRE and its team of writers – Eugene Hernandez, Brian Brooks, Anne Thompson, Peter Knegt, Nigel M. Smith, and Eric Kohn – were working hard from Canada, bringing you the latest news, reviews, and interviews. So before you move on from this year’s fest, how about an indieWIRE-ian recap?

Our guide to all the films now offers links to film pages that include hundreds of critics grades and review links from over thirty critics and bloggers in attendance. The guide will continue to be updated in the coming days, and indieWIRE will also publish a ranked poll of the best of the fest, so check back.

Check out all the films screening at the fest here, as well as the links below to all of iW‘s coverage of Toronto, from reviews to interviews to daily “minute by minute” dispatches:
