It's the most wonderful time of the year! No, not Christmas music season—it's the opening of film awards season. The Toronto International Film Festival is one of the largest film events in North America, and in the past few decades has become the unofficial opening bell for studios, production companies, directors, screenwriters, and actors to start campaigning for the biggest film awards of the year. Hundreds of movies from all around the world premiere at the festival, but it's the carefully calibrated premieres with big-time stars hoping for early buzz heading into Oscar season that captures the most attention. This video is all the introduction you'll need for this year's festivities, and be on the lookout for more videos about TIFF every day through the end of next week here on Fandor.
