European Film Promotion at Tiff

7 September 2013 12:30 PM, PDT | Sydney's Buzz | See recent Sydney's Buzz news »

Once again the European Film Promotion’s (Efp) Film Sales Support (Fss) initiative will come to Toronto to link sales companies from all over Europe to a great array of buyers from across the globe. Supported by the Media Programme of the European Union, Fss has now been aiding the European film industry fro the last 10 years.

"Toronto has and is an important informal market and an important festival for European films, the distributors see the films in a different mood, more quietly, the public screenings are working well. It is a key place to launch a film or to complete previous sales on films that were in Cannes, Venice, Locarno...” (Loïc Magneron, Wide)

“Tiff is a major pillar of the annual festival calendar. Aside from a proliferation of North American buyers, it also attracts top tier international distributors so a favorable reception at Tiff can significantly increase a film's commercial prospects”. (Andrew Orr, Independent)

Due to the limited amount of resources, only 52 out of the 60 films submitted to the Efp will receive financial support to be marketed during the Tiff, which runs from September 5 to 15. This year alone, 372 films total, over 150 from Europe, will screen at the festival many of which will see their world or international premiers there.

Midnight Madness, Restored Classics, Athens, Arthouse films & Documentaries all take centre stage at Tiff 2013

30 July 2013 10:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Midnight Madness has been going on for 25 years at the Toronto International Film Festival and has hosted such directors as Quentin Tarantino, George A. Romero, John Carpenter, Dario Argento, Eli Roth, Rob Zombie, Don Coscarelli, Richard Linklater, Peter Jackson, Barry Levinson, Ben Wheatley, James Gunn, and Bong Joon-ho.

“Since its 1988 launch, the Midnight Madness programme emerged as a touchstone of cinematic shock, satiating the adventurous palate of bloodthirsty cinephiles from all over the world,” stated Colin Geddes, International Programmer for the Festival. “When the witching hour strikes and the human brain starts slipping into dream mode, the Ryerson Theatre will once again serve up a feast of phantasmagorical characters and jaw-dropping scenes, playing host to bizarre biological monstrosities, ruthless dominatrix gangs, paranormal mirrors, and the hijinks of supernatural cheerleaders.”

Carrying on the tradition of being a global showcase the 2013 edition features films from USA, Japan, Hong Kong, and Austria.  Receiving »

2013 Toronto Film Festival Adds Midnight Madness, Vanguard, City to City and Documentary Selection

30 July 2013 8:21 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The 2013 Toronto Film Festival selection grew quite a bit today as the organizers announced the Midnight Madness, Documentary, Vanguard, City to City and Cinematheque selections for this year's festival. Among the title announced there aren't exactly a ton of names that pop off the paper immediately. The Midnight Madness selection will open with Lucky McKee's All Cheerleaders Die in which a young girl who practices the dark arts turns on her best friend after she joins the cheer squad. However, I assume most attention will be on Eli Roth's The Green Inferno, a film in which a group of humanitarians go to the Amazon to help a native tribe only to have the tribe kidnap them and later learn their cannibalistic heritage is very much intact. The Documentary selection includes plenty of familiar faces such as Marcel Ophuls, Claude Lanzmann and Errol Morris and Frank Pavich will be bringing Jodorowsky's Dune, »
