Toronto International Film Festival 2014

Toronto International Film Festival 2014

The Toronto Sales Office folks,

Justin Cutler


Christoph Straub

and SydneysBuzz met and discussed changes for this upcoming Toronto International Film Festival to be held this September 4 – 14.

This year they will close the street in front of the Hyatt to traffic, thus making a pedestrian zone. And, taking a page from the
Berlinale, for the first time, outdoor advertising will be available at the Festival Village along King Street West for films in the
Official Selection.

For the first time, shorts will include five international short film programs along with Short Cuts Canada. Other programs include Gala Presentations,
Special Presentations, Masters, Contemporary World Cinema, Discovery, Vanguard, Midnight Madness, TIFF Docs, Mavericks, TIFF Kids, City to City,
Wavelengths, Future Projections and TIFF Cinematheque.

There will also be a larger press and industry screening venue at the Princess of Wales Theater every morning from September 4 to 8 along with tandem
screenings in the large Scotiabank Theater throughout the festival. The Jews among us are lucky this year as Rosh Hashanah runs late (September 24-26,
2014) so Toronto will be guilt-free.

Also new this year is a new Industry Conference Venue at the CBC Broadcast Center’s Glenn Gould Studio, where the master himself recorded his
music. The Filmmakers’ Lounge will also be there.

The industry Centre remains at the Hyatt Regency Hotel with increased meeting space and promotion at stand opportunities.

Passes are on sale now, so book early! Early bird registration closes June 12. The last day to register online is August 22.
