Toronto anniversary celebrated during program

Every section of the festival will celebrate Toronto’s 175th anniversary with programming sure to illuminate those only familiar with the Hollywood North capital “in disguise.”

Each day, before every film, the fest will run one of 10 vignettes featuring docu or drama clips showcasing the city’s exteriors through the decades; idea was jointly hatched with Peter Raymont, whose “Genius Within: The Inner Life of Glenn Gould” (Real to Reel) sheds new light on the Toronto icon.

Future Projections includes the world preem of “Speak City,” Lisa Steele and Kim Tomczak’s installation re-creating a visual and sonic urban journey, and the North American preem of three works by art star Mark Lewis, contextualized in a retrospective of his Toronto work.

The centenary of Toronto-born Mary Pickford’s screen debut is marked with a screening of William Beaudine’s “Sparrows.” And “Toronto on Film” is the fest’s new anthology of essays exploring the myriad ways filmmakers like David Cronenberg and Atom Egoyan have represented the city.
