Even having cut the program by 20% this year, and despite the buyers’ complaints, Toronto International Film Festival is a ‘monster of an event’, as The Guardian put it. This year’s program included 255 premiers, screened over 10 days starting September 7th. The participating films from all over the world not only took the audience and the jury to extremely different places on our planet, they allowed traveling through different characters universes.
