From focusing on Mumbai in the festival’s ‘City to City’ programme to holding panel discussions on Bollywood and the Indian indies, Toronto International Film Festival will be a grand celebration of Indian cinema this year. From Ritwik Ghatak’s Meghe Dhaka Tara to Gauri Shinde’s English Vinglish, the festival promises something for everyone. Known for his fondness for Mumbai and Indian films, Tiff’s artistic director Cameron Bailey talks about the city, its emerging new-cinema as well as Bollywood:

What excites you about Mumbai as a city and the films that emerge out of it?

Mumbai has more movie-mad people than anywhere in the world. From the time I land at the airport to the time I leave, I encounter countless people who want to talk about their favourite films, their favourite stars and the gossip around both. People love movies in Mumbai, so on that level it feels like home. »
