TORONTO BY ITS INSIDERS
by Joanne Belluco
Featuring Vincenzo Natali, Don McKellar, Atom Egoyan, Sook Yin Lee, Michael Snow, Bruce McDonald, Patricia Rozema, Reginald Harkema, Aaron Woodley et Peter Mettle.
Dubbed “Hollywood North,” Toronto has become a convenient backdrop for American films, and home to one of the film industry’s most important international film festivals and markets. But with the sheer number of films and created and sold here, and the strength of the talent it has spawned, it has remained surprisingly invisible as a film city.
Toronto by its Insiders journeys into the heart of Toronto, between the “dreamt” city of its filmmakers and the urban reality they inhabit, one as surprising as their filmic imaginings. We wander in this ever-transforming place led by the directors and examples of their work, exploring the singularities of their vision, their similarities and differences and whether they have a connection to each other or the city they have created in.
