Red carpets, nightly parties, fans’ faces obscured by continually clicking cameras—looks like the Toronto International Film Festival is back in town. Each day of the TIFF we’re not only listing our daily flick pick, but we’re mapping the hottest attractions, restaurants, and shops and services that are just steps from the screening spot.
The films: Foreign film Gigante is a romantic comedy between a grocery store security guard and a cleaning woman; while Videocracy from Sweden examines of how Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi uses his control of the nation’s TV empire to wield power over the people.
The venue: Cineplex Odeon Varsity at Manulife Centre, a movie theatre where patrons aged 19 and over can receive full in-seat service during Varsity VIP film screenings.
How do you round out your day of international fare?
