Tim Burton‘s MoMA is presently showing at the Toronto Bell Lightbox center, the new headquarters of the Toronto International Film Festival. In celebration of the event director Tim Burton has created an animated short promo video to advertise the exhibit. Fans of the director should be inspired to head out and check out the show. Watch the clip after the break.
The TIFF Bell Lightbox, Toronto’s newest landmark building, dedicated to cinematic culture and the permanent home to the Toronto International Film Festival.
This blockbuster show displays over 700 unique elements and is designed to appeal to casual fans and more dedicated ones alike. Items range from popular movie paraphernalia like the Batman masks, a life-sized Johnny Depp model dressed as Edward Scissorhands, a replica topiary from the same movie to an 22-foot-tall sad little Balloon Boy and more personal items raided from his London home. The latter includes personal letters, unrealized projects, poems and even a book he had written as a teenager.
New York’s Museum of Modern Art first organized the collection, its third most popular ever, with only Picasso and Matisse having higher attendance.
