Previewing the 2011 Toronto Film Fest!
It’s once again time for the Toronto International Film Festival, and again, I’m going to be covering it for JoBlo.com. One of the true highlights of my year, this is my third time covering TIFF, and it seems like the festival programmers have outdone themselves yet again. Last year was a banner outing for the fest, with films like THE KING’S SPEECH, BLACK SWAN, SUBMARINE, INSIDIOUS, LET ME IN, and THE TOWN all playing within the first few days (to be fair, I also caught the infamous PASSION PLAY at TIFF and I hear Madonna’s WE is going to be this year’s low-light). Last year, I called that Colin Firth would win an Oscar for THE KING’S SPEECH, and my hunch paid off. Will I be able to make a similar prediction this year? Through my ten-day film odyssey in Toronto, I’ve got a list of forty films I’m dying to check out, and the following are some of the highlights that jump out.
