This is the 45th year of the Toronto International Film Festival, also known as TIFF, and it is proposed to hold in the month of September, from on the 10th to 19th. The festival is organised to adapt with the current changes, with physical checkings, people participating while staying in their cars, online checkings, unreal red carpets, press releases, and the film industry discussions. This festival’s nomination consists of 50 recent feature movies, five shows comprising short movies, as well as interactive discussions, actors and actresses reunions, and question and answer sections with these actors and actresses, and film producers.
Celebrities such as Martin Scorsese, Priyanka Chopra, Taika Waititi, etc, made the list of those announced by TIFF organizers as their ambassadors. TIFF is happy to release the film titles to feature in the festival. These films include Ammonite whose director is Francis Lee with a British Origin. The other is called Another Round which was directed by Thomas Vinterberg, and some others, will all feature in the 2020 festival. More names of more films will be released in the next few months. In the first few days of TIFF, its complete list of films will be aired as physical, socially distanced checkings.
Participants of the festival can watch these films from the comfort of their cars, and have an outside experience that will feel better than the movie theatre. Organizers of TIFF are working hand-in-hand with the appropriate authorities, and health personnel about holding the festival to ensure the safety of everyone who will be present. They said that the safety of all who will attend the festival is their top priority. This proposal of TIFF’s conventional in-person movie festival will be dependent on the reopening of the region by its authorities when it is declared safer.
A safe reopening will be to ensure that the Festival’s venues and grounds will follow, and surpass all guidelines given by public health organizations. The TIFF will use an online platform for the Festival, creating fresh chances to reach out to audiences outside Toronto. Organizers of TIFF are working closely with Shift72 to create this high-tech online platform. In the last 10 days, the platform will have online checkings, as well as quite a good number of discussions and special ceremonies. This year, TIFF will be announcing its ambassadors, 50 popular film producers, and actors approved to assist TIFF in ensuring that an amazing Festival is held for the movie industry.
Organizers of TIFF will also give the Festival’s yearly Tribute Awards, calling on people with great impacts to the film industry. Other films announced by TIFF that were nominated include Bruised, the first directed film of Halle Berry, who is from the United States. The film called Concrete Cowboys produced by a film producer called Ricky Staub, who is based in the United States too. Director Nicolás Pereda’s film made the nomination. It is hoped that these selected films will be loved by the participants of the festival, and make them have a good time.
