Reel Talk: Contemporary World Cinema - 2016/2017cancel
Hosted by Cameron Bailey, Artistic Director of the Toronto International Film Festival, and long-time Festival programmer Jane Schoettle, Reel Talk: Contemporary World Cinema provides a global snapshot of the best cinema from around the world, with a focus on non-English-language, art-house films that may not see wide release.
Following a screening of Julie Taymor's The Tempest, Canadian literary icon Margaret Atwood joins award-winning stage director and actress Martha Henry for a discussion of Shakespeare's play, Taymor's film, and Atwood's highly anticipated novel Hag-Seed, a re-telling of The Tempest commissioned as part of the Hogarth Shakespeare series.
Be the first to see some of the year's most exciting new films! Reel Talk: Sneak Preview focuses on the best English-language cinema of the year, from Hollywood galas to small-budget indies, art-house dramas to homegrown documentaries. Part of the fun is the surprise: titles are not announced ahead of time, and all screenings are previews of films not yet released.
Presented in partnership with CBS and the Canadian Space Agency, TIFF's Trek Talks feature roundtable discussions and keynote presentations that consider the influence of Star Trek in the areas of television, film, technology, space exploration, education, politics and social justice.
There's nothing here! But don't despair.
"Cinema can fill in the empty spaces of your life and your loneliness." - Pedro Almodovar
