Toronto Fest Looks For New Digs

“Plans are well underway to build dedicated new theatre and office space for the Toronto International Film Festival which, after Cannes and Sundance, is regarded as the most important movie celebration in the world… Individuals and organizations associated with TIFF’s plans have been extremely tight-lipped. Still, it is known that the festival began to look seriously at having a dedicated, year-round space of its own about 18 months ago, surveying major cultural players as to the value and tourist potential of such a space… Three award-winning architectural firms are in competition for the project’s design.”
