Toronto – City of Festivals?
What’s a Torontonian to do? Rumour has it that the city is now home to seventy-five (yes, seventy-five) film festivals, and frankly, figuring out how to attend all these festivals has become a bit of a logistical nightmare. Enter city hall’s latest Toronto promotion vehicle, TorontoFilmFestivals.com.
Essentially, the site has a section that lists Toronto film festivals, and a calendar of all known festival dates. One can also search festivals alphabetically, by date, or according to theme. It’s a pretty handy tool, whether you’re an obsessive cinephile like me, a filmmaker looking for a place to submit, or an activist looking to duplicate one of the many festivals of the city. Check it out.
