Once again arrives the great opportunity to attend to another movies’s festival full of magic, which brings together so many people as movie’s fans, actors, directors, cameras, press, designers and so many people working for the film industry, today is just another day but is also a day to create a legacy for the future generation, where they can remember how we were in this times, through the movies we are watching, how was our life and the issues that were affecting in this times,  just as another history book that will show how we were…in this times, Because “LIVING A LIFE WITHOUT LEAVING A LEGACY, IS LIKE LIVING AN ANONYMOUS LIFE, AS IF YOU NEVER EVEN BEEN TO THIS WORLD…” For this reason it is important not only do what we like, but also leave a legacy of Who you are, and Where are you in this world, we are all important and we are all worth it very much to leave a present, to give a gift to the world, to your family, to our futures generations, to the humanity, ask to yourself what can you do for yourself, for your family for your generation but most important to be remember for eternity…

The 2016 edition of the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) features “This is Your Film Festival.” In many ways, this is a valid tagline for a top tier film festival, which prides itself for being accessible to the public. Unlike other top film festivals such as Cannes, which are typically industry-only events, TIFF has public screenings for all of their films and considers the People’s Choice Award to be their top prize.

The Toronto International Film Festival is one of the largest publicly attended film festivals in the world, attracting over 480,000 people annually. Over the last 40 years, TIFF has grown to become a year-round destination for film culture operating out of the TIFF Bell Lightbox, a dynamic centre for film culture that offers film lovers a world-class cinema experience including new releases, live one-of-a-kind film events and an interactive gallery.

Year-round, TIFF Bell Lightbox offers screenings, lectures, discussions, festivals, workshops, industry support and the chance to meet filmmakers from Canada and around the world. TIFF Bell Lightbox is located on the north west corner of King Street and John Street in downtown Toronto.

In 2015, 397 films from 71 countries were screened at 28 screens in downtown Toronto venues, welcoming an estimated 480,000 attendees, over 5,000 of whom were industry professionals.[2] TIFF starts the Thursday night after Labour Day (the first Monday in September in Canada) and lasts for eleven days.

The Toronto International Festival’s Grolsch People’s Choice Award — which is based on popular vote by Festival filmgoers — has emerged as a beacon of awards season success. Past recipients of this audience accolade include Room, The Imitation Game, 12 Years a Slave, The King’s Speech, Slumdog Millionaire, Silver Linings Playbook, Argo, and Dallas Buyers Club.

The Toronto International Film Festival began in 1976 as the “Festival of Festivals”, collecting the best films from other film festivals around the world and showing them to eager audiences in Toronto. Founded by Bill Marshall, Dusty Cohl and Henk Van der Kolk, the inaugural event takes place from October 18 through 24. That first year, 35,000 filmgoers watched 127 films from 30 countries presented in 10 programmes. Piers Handling has been the festival’s director and CEO since 1994, while Noah Cowan became co-director of TIFF in 2004. In late 2007, Cowan became the artistic director of TIFF Bell Lightbox, while long-time programmer Cameron Bailey succeeded as co-director; as of 2013, Bailey also holds the position of artistic director.

TIFF was once centered on the Yorkville neighbourhood, but the Toronto Entertainment District later gained a greater level of prominence. TIFF is known for the celebrity buzz it brings to the area with international media setting up near its restaurants and stores for photos and interviews with the stars. In 2010, TIFF opened its permanent headquarters,TIFF Bell Lightbox, a unique year-round home for the appreciation of film in the heart of downtown Toronto.

TIFF has grown, steadily adding initiatives throughout the years. TIFF Cinematheque (formerly Cinematheque Ontario) and the Film Reference Library (FRL) opened in 1990. The TIFF Kids International Film Festival (formerly Sprockets) launched in 1998. Film Circuit began exhibiting independent and Canadian films in under-serviced cities across Canada in 1994.

El Festival Internacional de Cine de Toronto (Toronto International Film Festival, TIFF) es un festival de cine que se celebra anualmente en Toronto (Canadá).

Una vez más vemos que la mágica del cine reúne a muchas personas, como los fans del cine, los actores, directores, cámaras, prensa, diseñadores y tanta gente que trabaja para que el mundo del cine persevere tras el paso de los años, dejando un legado para las futuras generaciones, que recordaran que en un día como hoy se marco una pequeña historia en el mundo del cine, pues “VIVIR UNA VIDA SIN DEJAR HISTORIA, ES COMO VIVIR SIN HABER EXISTIDO NUNCA...”por ello es importante no solo hacer lo que nos gusta pero si dejar un legado de quien somos y donde estamos en este mundo, todos somos importantes y valemos mucho como para dejar un hermoso regalo para la humanidad, pregúntate que puedes hacer por ti, por tu familia por tu generación pero por sobre todo por ser recordador para la eternidad…

El festival ha comenzado esta semana de Septiembre, un festival donde el publico elige su película favorita y tiene a diferencia de otros festivales de cine la oportunidad de ir al cine a ver las películas que están en competición para este certamen, ademas como todo los festivales de cine llega todo el glamour de las celebridades del mundo del cine, las cual llenan la alfombra roja llena de color y elegancia con los mejores modelos y diseñadores en esta ocasión pudimos ver incluso al guapetón y elegantemente vestido Tom Ford quien vistió a Amy Adams con un fabuloso vestido blanco.

Dura los diez días que dura el festival, se suelen presentar de 300 a 400 películas en diferentes categorías, aunque no se entregan premios.

Se considera uno de los festivales más importantes del mundo y uno de los más importantes de América del Norte. En 1998, la revista Variety escribió que “el Festival de Toronto es el segundo después del de Cannes en términos de presencia de estrellas y de actividad económica”. Interrogado por el National Post en 1999, Roger Ebert declara “…Aunque Cannes siga siendo el mayor, Toronto es el más útil y el más activo”.

El festival comenzó en 1976 como una retrospectiva de los mejores festivales del mundo. Desde entonces se ha convertido en un importante socio de Hollywood, tanto que en ocasiones se le considera la antesala de los Óscar.

Desde 1994, el director del Festival Internacional de Cine de Toronto es Piers Handling quien colaborada arduamente en todo los detalles, son muchas las películas que elige el Público entre ellas se encuentran las ultimas como:

    Brian De Palma Brian De Palma was born in Newark, New Jersey. He studied physics at Columbia University but became obsessed with making films after seeing Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo (1958). One of the key auteurs to emerge from the “New Hollywood” of the 1960s and ’70s, Brian De Palma has created an oeuvre that oscillates from low-budget independent films to Hollywood blockbusters, working almost exclusively within traditional Hollywood genres: horror, sci-fi, rock musical, gangster epic, war film, and psychological thriller. Many of his films have screened at the Festival, including his Oscar-nominated horror film Carrie (1976),Sisters (1973), The Fury (1978), Femme Fatale (2002), Redacted (2007), and most recently Passion (2012). De Palma won his first Silver Bear Award at the Berlin International Film Festival for his comedy-drama Greetings (1968), starring Robert De Niro. In 2007, the crime-thriller Redacted won the prestigious Silver Lion and Future Film Festival Digital Award at the Venice Film Festival. Most recently, in 2015 he was honoured again in Venice and awarded the Jaeger-LeCoultre Glory to the Filmmaker Award. This year, TIFF Cinematheque presented a retrospective of his work called Split/Screen: The Cinema of Brian De Palma.

    Zhang Ziyi Zhang Ziyi was born in Beijing, China. Graceful and formidable, glamorous and badass, Zhang is an international superstar who has time and again brought strong, multi-dimensional female characters to the screen. She first came to prominence in Ang Lee’s Academy Award–winning Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000), garnering international award nominations and global stardom. Aided by her classical dance training, Zhang mesmerized audiences with dizzying choreographed moves in the martial arts films Hero (2002) andHouse of Flying Daggers (2004), directed by Zhang Yimou. She successfully crossed over into the North American film industry, starring in the film adaptation of Memoirs of a Geisha (2005), for which she received Golden Globe, BAFTA, and Screen Actors Guild Award nominations. Zhang has demonstrated an extensive range, working alongside the visionary Wong Kar-Wai in the masterful 2046 (2005) and in the director’s latest contribution to world cinema, The Grandmaster (2013). Zhang will also be participating in the Festival’s In Conversation With… event on September 15 at TIFF Bell Lightbox.

    Mahamat-Saleh Haroun Mahamat-Saleh Haroun was born in Abéché, Chad, and later moved to France where he studied film and worked as a journalist. In 1999 he directed Bye Bye Africa, winning the Best First Film prize in Venice. His second feature, Abouna (Our Father) (2002), was selected for the Directors’ Fortnight at Cannes. In 2006 he was awarded the Special Jury Prize at the Venice Film Festival for Dry Season, while the Museum of Modern Art (MoMa) in New York presented a retrospective exhibition of his work. In 2010, A Screaming Man picked up the Jury Prize in Cannes. That same year, Haroun received the Robert Bresson Award at the Venice Film Festival, as well as the Humanity Prize at the 34th Mostra in São Paulo, Brazil. In 2013 he was once again in Competition at Cannes with Grigris. He also received the UNESCO Fellini Medal 2013. His latest feature Hissein Habré, A Chadian Tragedy (2016) will have its North American Premiere at the Festival this year.
