Toronto Film Festival 2009

The Toronto Film Festival in Canada takes place between the 10th and 19th September 09. It is a fairly contemporary film festival with a good selection of different types of films within different genres. Although there are no awards, the festival promotes Canadian, International and foreign language films from across the globe.  

Films will be shown from various countries including China, Germany, Sweden, Malaysia, Australia, France, Colombia and the UK.  

This year, many already internationally renowned films such as the acclaimed ‘Broken Embraces’ (dir: Pedro Almodovar) and the controversial ‘Antichrist’ by Lars von Trier will be shown alongside more experimental, shorts and recent feature films. This year there are 19 different programme categories including Contemporary World Cinema, Gala Presentations (high profile international films), Canadian Open Vault (recently restored old Canadian movies) as well as Midnight Madness which screens horrors and chillers at midnight.
