Welcome to Studio 9

Conversations direct from the official TIFF '17 interview suite

Sep 14, 2017

In the heart of Festival Village within TIFF Bell Lightbox, there is a little room with lights, two chairs, and a Polaroid camera. This is Studio 9. With visits from auteurs like Bong Joon-ho and Hirokazu Kore-eda to Hollywood acting royalty — (Hello, Idris Elba and Kate Winslet!) — Studio 9 is the opportunity for filmmakers to press “pause” on forward march of Festival to have fulsome conversations about the what, why, and how of cinema.

Studio 9 conversations will be rolled out throughout Festival and beyond, but first: discover who stopped by for a chat with our sneak peek polaroids and moments below.
