We’re heading to Toronto! Find out how London and the UK are being showcased at this year’s TIFF
Date posted: 18.08.2015
We're proud to partner with the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival on this year's City to City strand, which this year is putting a spotlight on London.
One of the world's most prestigious and largest film festivals, TIFF celebrates its 40th anniversary this year and we are delighted to join in the celebrations.
An exciting events space
Joining forces with the British Film Commission and the GREAT Britain campaign, we'll be hosting London House - an events space open 11-16 September with panel discussions and events.
Industry experts will also be on hand to talk filmmakers and producers through everything the UK has to offer, from shooting on location and the country's world-class VFX and post-production facilities to its generous Creative Sector Tax Reliefs.
"It's always a pleasure to attend one of the world's best film festivals" says Adrian Wootton, Chief Executive of Film London and the British Film Commission.
"This year is set to be all the more exciting thanks to London House and the opportunity it gives us to showcase the UK's incredible offer when it comes to talent, versatility and innovation."
In addition, the UK Film Centre will once again be at TIFF located in the Hyatt Regency Hotel. Managed by Film Export UK, the Centre is an international business hub for the UK film industry in Toronto, spotlighting UK films and co-productions in selection, and offering delegates clear information and advice about connecting with UK film.
What is City to City?
Every year, TIFF chooses a city somewhere in the world that is producing impressive work and spotlights it with this special focus.
Past chosen cities have included Tel Aviv, Istanbul, Buenos Aires, Mumbai, Athens and Seoul.
The wider TIFF programme will also feature a number of films which made use of UK locations, facilities and expertise, including High-Rise, Terence Davies's Sunset Song and Ridley Scott's hotly anticipated The Martian.
